I am always hungry now that I'm exercising more. Any ideas for really filling foods, snacks etc? :?: The only thing that really fills me up these days is black beans and brown rice! Thanks!

I love oats as breakfast or a snack.

I usually keep a bowl with celery and carrots in water in the fridge. Filling, and convienent!

The great thing about most of these is that they are very versatile, so you can add a variety of toppings to them to keep from getting bored!

1. Potatoes (plain, baked)
2. Fish
3. Oatmeal - you could mix this with cottage cheese/yogurt, honey, maple syrup, raisins/dried fruit, fresh fruit/berries, etc.
4. Oranges
5. Apples - I personally LOVE apples with peanut butter, which makes a more filling snack.
6. Whole wheat pasta - obviously good, in moderation. Tomato sauce, esp. with extra veggies, tastes great. For the summer, you could even combine the pasta & fish and make a low-fat tuna casserole with onion and celery or whatever else you like.
7. Steak
8. Grapes - very good either cold from the fridge, or frozen! Lots of fiber and offers a nice crunch. I like adding them to chicken salad sometimes too.
9. Popcorn
10. Bran cereal

I have been keeping my version of bean salad in the fridge.
1 can chili beans
1 can corn
1 can black beans
about a cup or so of salsa
garlic powder
crushed red pepper

I eat this alot, warm and cold, on sandwiches, salads, with sauteed peppers/onions, on wraps.

Filling, fiber and one point on weight watchers for 1/2 cup

My favorite is:

1 tsp almond butter warmed in the microwave, then slice a small banana on top, then drizzle on some honey.

i really need to start learning what is good for me to eat and what is not.
I love black beans!

After working out, I like to make a big salad with grilled chicken, fresh cut carrots, onions, grn peppers and a lil bit of cheese with some low fat dressing.

FF refried beans and chicken. I use these ingredients in all kinds of food. With veggies, eggs, tortillas, pitas, etc. Cheap too =)

Veggies are a great way to bulk things out. Bell peppers, mushroom, squash, cabbage, spinach, etc. Have some lean protein (eggs, chicken, tuna, etc) and a little healthy fat (avocado, olives). Very satisfying!

Anything with high fiber is definitely a winner:

black beans
garbanzo beans
whole wheat pasta
brown rice

I find grapes strangely filling. Peanut butter helps take the edge off too. Avocado sliced on sprouted bread is filling too. I tend to need a little fat. If I have a small portion, and then give it a little time and drink some water (I don't necessarily feel full instantly), it helps. Even a little dark chocolate sometimes works.
