Default Filling food selections for lunch help needed

Hi all,

I generally have oatmeal and a piece of fruit in the mornings for breakfast and find that I am full easily until lunch time.

However in the afternoons and evenings I struggle.

Anyone have food recommendations for lunch and dinner that will work like the oatmeal to help stave off hunger and blood sugar drops?


TIA,

Deb

Lunch is my biggest meal of the day, as it's when I'm most hungry. I generally choose about 3-4 oz of lean protein, at least 3/4c cooked veggies, a whole grain, and maybe a dairy make sure at least one of those has either one or both of my healthy oils in it. So that might be a sauteed pork chop (from last nights dinner) spiced with something interesting + fresh herbs, steamed baby carrots, and brown rice cooked in low sodium chicken broth with lemon zest and fresh herbs added at the end. If I'm really hungry, I have 1c skim milk also. My lunch is around 12pm most days.

I also have a snack around 4pm consisting of either fruit and lowfat yogurt or wheat thins and laughing cow cheese and fruit. I eat dinner around 7pm and usually eat something light - might be a veggie omlet (cooked with a healthy oil) with a touch of lowfat shredded cheese and a whole-grain light english muffin. I pretty much always have a snack around 10pm - something a little sweet. Might be a sliced apple with a sprinkle of cinnammon sugar, a sectioned orange, homemade roasted banana and dark chocolate mousse, a cup of hot cocoa or similar.
