    Popcorn
    Boiled Egg
    If you like yogurt.
    There are single servings for 100-150 calories. You can also get plain Greek yogurt and add your own fruit, honey, vanilla, and granola to up the calories.

    Thanks everyone. I eat most of that. I think the only thing I haven't included so far is the cheese or popcorn.

    Eat 50 or 100 calories more during meals other than snacks?

    Can you get out of snacking habit by sticking to the 3-4 regular meals per day? It may take a few weeks, but you can get out of snacking. If I need a snack, I eat pre-measured quantities of roasted almonds and raisins. It is OK to snack once in a while, so long as you log it in.

    Thing is I answer phones all day at work. So I try not to eat at my desk. I think it would be a little gross and rude if I answered with a mouth full of food.
    I work from 8-5. Then when I leave at 5 I go to meet my husband and help him with the janitorial service he has.
    Daily routine:
    alarm set for 4:25 A.M.
    jump on my mini trampoline for a 20 min Rebounding work out
    shower
    eat breakfast
    wake the kids for school
    prepare whatever I will be taking to work that day snacks, lunch, water...
    out the door just after 7A.M.
    So should I be eating more for breakfast and lunch AND snacks???

    I don't snack much but always include a decent amount of protein and fat in my meals - I find if I've done that, snacking is a non issue.

    My occasional snacks are:

    Cottage cheese/maple syrup
    Plain yogurt/banana/chocolate chip
    Apple/cheese
    Celery/peanut butter/banana

    If you read my last post. You'll see it's not easy for me to snack. Should I add one of those options to breakfast or lunch?

    I'm not sure if I have a great picture of what you're asking for - you want to eat more calories but in a way you feel is healthy? For me that means eating more fat usually. I eat olive oil, salmon and full fat cheese daily and if I have extra cals it always goes to wine.

    Yes. I want to meet my calorie goal but in a healthy way.

    From your original post, I thought you wanted snack ideas. Are you asking for lunch ideas that you can pack to work? Dinner ideas for home? Dinner ideas for in the car?

    There's nothing wrong with snacking multiple times per day. In fact eating often keeps you feeling satiated, and you're (generally less likely to binge). I'd suggest pre-planning your days with snacks and regular meals, and you'll maybe find things a little smoother.

    I wanted ideas because I keep falling short of my calorie goal
