Volume Eaters Thread

I have recently come to the conclusion that volume eating is best suited for me. Eating mainly vegetarian means I can eat copious amounts of food and stay in my calorie goal. Are there others out there who do the same? Let's exchange ideas. Here is what I ate today:

Breakfast, large shake with 2 cups spinach, almond milk, protein powder ice and water. Plus a slice of flax bread with almond butter and a sliced zucinni.

Lunch - one bag steamed frozen broccoli, 2 diced peppers, sprinkle of nuts and raisins

Snack- Apple, orange and cantaloupe

Dinner- 2 large zuchinni, one large onion, two packages portobello mushrooms cooked in vegetable broth and 1tbs butter, edited to add 3oz tempeh

Dessert - one cup almond milk with 3 tbs chia seeds (chia pudding) and 1/2 scoop protein powder

This was a LOT of food and I was happily full (not overstuffed) at every meal.

I find eating this way keeps me from snacking -- or worse binging. I finally broke through a 6 month plateau.

But it does make eating out difficult unless you have a mini-meal before or after. Anyone have any thoughts on this eating style?
