Riddy I love salads too. I wish they filled me up too! They can, but only if they have protein, preferably meat.
I found another filling food for me. I made a smoothie with a cup of milk (1%), about 3/4 of a frozen banana, and half a scoop of protein powder. Total cals 250. I'm drinking it now and am so stuffed from it I won't be able to finish. And I was v hungry when I started on it! The texture is so silky and creamy too.
