mmmmmm instead of fries I cut a yellow squash into chips. I then dip them into a flour mixture of flour, season salt, garlic and onion salt and ground pepper. I then put a small amount of EVOO in the pan and fry them. They are freaking delicious!! I love them... had them tonight for dinner...and they're great cold too!!

If you decide to try chick peas, definitely get them canned. They're a pain in the butt to cook and smell HORRIBLE when they go bad. They are yummy though.

Chick peas. I loved them whenever it was in the salad or anything but didn't know what they were called. (since I'm a Korean...living in the U.S. lol)

Now that I know what they are, they are one of my main source of protein. YUMMY....

Are chickpeas raw? Do you buy them canned?
If you buy the canned ones, you can just rinse them and you are good to go. You can heat them up if you want, too... Just make sure to rinse them really good, though, since you are watching your sodium intake. It does have quite some sodium if you get the canned ones.

At my temple they would make this awesome spicy chick pea-tomato curry for lunch on Sundays. I loved it so much my mom dubbed it "temple chick peas" and showed me how to make a healthy version of it. Try out a chick pea curry recipe (usually called "chana masala") from any Indian cook book and you will love chick peas in a new way. Make sure to adapt it to a healthy style by cutting back on the oil and cream called for in the recipes, but they are loaded with spices with a tomato and onion gravy base and that makes it very flavorful.

I was reading about you all saying you like artichokes yesterday and I forgot to post this... with my artichokes I eat a couple tablespoons fat free mayo with a little curry seasoning in it, I dip the artichokes (and hearts) in that... soooooo yummy. And I usually DESPISE mayo.

Skinny Cow Ice-Cream Sandwiches! They're only 1.5 grams a fat per serving and they are so rich and delicious. I have a sweet tooth that won't quit so this has become my savior.

I am going to add a new food to your list that I rediscovered today.

Couscous

I was very hungry for dinner and thinking about making some rice pilaf to go with the grilled salmon I pillaged from a work picnic last night. I was rifling through my pantry and came across a box of NearEast Couscous Meditteranean Curry that had clearly been forgotten. The instructions said to just boil some water and pour it in and 5 minutes later the couscous is ready to eat. It was much faster than waiting for rice pilaf to cook and it was so light and good! I added in some frozen peas to help bulk it up. The Near East brand is high in carbs and salt if you are watching those items, but they do sell couscous by itself and you could dress it up with other flavors. The best part is that it cooks it really fast and only requires hot water.

Oh I forgot another favorite, chicken sausage. Its way healthier then the pork variety and total fills my sausage desire when I'm making pasta.

Oatmeal (fiberlicious and filling!), brown rice, and veggies (broccoli)! Veggies are awesome b/c they take the place of higher-calorie foods but still make you feel full.
