Wow, Glory, you have a yummy maintain menu
How many is it, 2000 +?
As for me, I wrote a recipe maybe an hour ago for a dish that is very low cal, yummy, and I had a pound of it
It came up to 650 calories, which is a normal lunch for me.
I started eating more frequent this time around (the first time, when I lost 80 pounds I ate twice a day, and was not happy). I have fruit all the time, if it's in the house. I have sandwiches with cucumber and tomato slices, and alfalfa sprouts, I love them with a bit of mayo, just so I have the taste of it.
I love my organic muesli with nuts and raisins, with two tespoons of honey and a tub of green tea (unsweetened). It's a very slow food: first you chew the muesli oats and taste the honey and nuts and sweet sour raisins, then you dillute it with a sip of tea, and then you wash it down... it's very satisfying. Every bite takes much more time that with regular food
I also like soup cubes... i know they're not as healthy as real veggie broth, but they're time saving, low cal, and good to eat. I pust some fried dough balls in, which increases the caloric value quite a bit, so I keep an eye on almost every single one
I love cucumbers and tomatoes. With a bit of salt and pepper they're the tastiest veggies on earth, no oil needed. Sometimes I cut two tomatoes, put salt and pepper and a teaspoon of mayo in, have two slices of toasted bread, and it's just as yummy as the sandwiches.
I also like snacking on blown up rice or wheat cakes. Sometimes I put on some honey or just salt, and I'm fine
You can have a lot of fun inventing non-fattening food, when on a diet. And it can taste just as sweet and delicious as "regular" food
