Looking for some healthy, calorie-dense foods
ok, this sounds really silly, but there are days when I'm finding it really hard to eat my recommended amount of calories.
There are a lot of days when I'll have anywhere from 200-300 calories left over. I never go have an issue with going over.
I'm not feeling hungry or deprived.
Sure, it would be easy to have a chocolate bar or something to meet my calories, but I don't want to fall back into the trap of having junk food on a regular basis. That's what got me fat in the first place.
For breakfast I almost always have a bowl of cereal or oatmeal.
Lunch is usually a chicken burger or soup & sandwich, and fruit.
Afternoon snack is a usually a granola bar or a Skinny Cow ice cream treat.
Supper is a meat/veggies/carb side almost every night. Heavy on the veggies.
Evening snack is usually popcorn or pretzels or fruit & cheese.
I'd love some ideas for healthy items I can add to my meals, or maybe substitutes? Thanks!
