Here are some recent foods that I found (new to me) that help with dieting and of course some that everyone know:

- All of the riced cauliflower bags from Green giant.

- Cauliflower fried rice from Trader Joe’s.

- Healthy Choice “simply” Chicken Alfredo and Chicken Stirfry, both low cal and filling for me

- Trader Joe’s Tzatziki sauce
- Trader Joe’s low cal guacamole (made with greek yogurt)

- all of the quest protein bars and quest chips with guac above

- tru grill chicken bags from target. Just super easy and quick portion controlled titles chicken.

Some other staples that have been helping:

Sugar free yogurt and puddings

Have any recent finds? They don’t have to be new just new to you that you find helpful for an ongoing deficit?

    I hadn't eaten cottage cheese in years until I read it in a list of high protein foods when I was trying to increase my protein. Turns out I love the 4% fat variety, I eat a serving every day and it keeps me feeling full for hours.

    I'm making everything with it. Add it to my omelettes to make them light and fluffy. Crepes, pancakes, bread, mini cakes/cookies. You can throw it up against the wall and it sticks. It is one versatile product.

    Popcorn seeds, oil, and Kernel Seasons topping. I use a microwave popper. 1 teaspoon of oil is all that's needed for the toppings to stick.

    Individual ice cream cups have been great this summer. Unfortunately they don't come in Breyer's pumpkin spice.

    I'd always grouped potato, sweet potato and pumpkin in together (as the three usual starchy vegetables that always get roasted) and assumed they had very similar calories, and had generally avoided them when logging.
    About 18 months ago I went to log pumpkin for the first time and COULD NOT BELIEVE how low calorie they actually are. I checked at least five different websites because I was sure mfp must be wrong.
    I eat at least one pumpkin a week year round now. Love them.

    And for the record, I do eat potato and sweet potato, but generally I'd rather spend the calories on bread or pasta <3

    Metamucil chocolate wafers are 100 calories a pack - one pack is two wafers. have to drink a ton of water with them and I only eat one a day b/c it's too much fiber for me to eat two (at least right now) but the one wafer makes a great treat each day. Seriously, drink at least a full glass of water per wafer.

    I can't believe I am saying metamucil is a treat, LOL. But this darn wafer really tastes a lot like an oreo chocolate cookie AND it is beneficial. It has been life changing in more way than one.
