    I also prefer large volumes of food, but I don't really eat fruits or veggies, so it is something I struggle with. Following along for, hopefully, some good ideas.

    My best addition to this thread, though it's not "real food" is probably going to be protein fluff. Basically, 1 scoop of casein, 10ish oz of a liquid, and a little xanthan gum, then whip the hell out of it... ends up having the consistency very similar to mousse or whipped cream.


    Do you know how well this works with a whey or blended protein? Because that looks good!

    I've done it with whey and while it works, i think that obviously pure casein has a thicker and more pleasant texture. You might need to use more xantham to get your to work.

    either way, despite having made this many many times... i'm actually not really a fan of fluff. it looks cool, but man it is hard for me to eat.

    Yes, this is my preference! This week I did a bunch of rice and veggie mashups but minimal rice and finely chopped cauli and broccoli to bulk out the dish. I'll also do a bed of arugula/baby kale or whatever under any main meal, my zucchini ribbons and bolognese or whatever, to get full. I love the tomato salad idea, I might do that today.

    Kinda looks like the sugar free dessert at Sweet Tomatoes/Souplantation.
    I may have to try this, with something like sugar free chocolate syrup or something.

    Guys, when I eat Fage I eat the whole 460 gram medium tub. I don't screw around with volume lol. Currently eating 4 chicken hot dogs.

    I do the same! With an entire container of raspberries.

    I don't have room for fruit with my poverty macros. Actually I ate a bunch of animal crackers today. I guess I could have.

    Stalking your diary and our meal preferences are literally the same. Damn.

    You should really get on the hot dog salad band wagon though. I'm really trying to make this explode but no one is having it.

    Hey totally on board -- I'm a fan of the Billinksi brand chicken sausage. Love the spinach/feta!

    I used to eat that every night. Put it in a shirataki mac n' cheese.
