    Snow peas...I dunno how I never discovered these before. The grocery next to my place here has them really cheap. I just buy like a pound on my way home if I'm near end of my calories and snack on it all evening. Less than 200 cals usually, I love them and they're surprisingly good on the macro and nutrient front.

    The picture doesn't do these, but I made these egg bites and consistency is very similar to Starbucks. They have nonfat plain Greek yogurt and cottage cheese in them. I loaded them up with veggies (peppers, mushrooms, broccoli, spinach) and Turkey sausage.

    I recently made these tiny chicken patties with chicken mince, bread, onion, garlic and a bit of flour. They come in at around 50 calories per patty. I have one or two of those in a sandwich with two slices of whole wheat toast, onion, tomato, cilantro, sriracha, and as much cheese as I can fit into my calorie limit for the day. It's about 280 calories (not counting any cheese). It makes a great small meal. Depending on how hungry I am, I may add an egg as well.

    at home:

    quick and satisfying (for me) =

    2 eggs (whatever way I feel like at the time, poached, scrambled, fried) + 1 WHOLE (but cute, small) avocado, sliced, on top of eggs + 1/4 c. salsa. on top of that.

    If I am REALLY hungry (and craving carbs), I will add a 'slice' of pre-cooked polenta, warmed up in the pan while the eggs are cooking, and have that as a 'base' under the eggs

    Never fails me

    at a restaurant?

    Red Lobster Grilled shrimp tacos.. 420 cal and SO delicious

    Denny's slow-cooked pot roast - so good - (400 cal) + steamed broccoli (35 cal) + (if I am really hungry) red skinned mashed potatoes 120 cal = 555 cal total

    Do you eat edamame in restaurants?

    You can eat home and it sells for like 2.50. Buy frozen organic edamame in the shell. You can steam in the bag using microwave.

    The instant pot has been my best friend- put in frozen chicken breast (or any meat really) with 1 cup of water and spices and cook for 15 minutes. The chicken comes out super tender. I shred it or slice it and mix it with bbq sauce, salsa etc. Last night I mixed it with marinara sauce and sprinkled a little parm on top for a healthy version of chicken parm and served it with roast veggies. Tasted just as good as the breaded, deep fried version.

    Black bean soup with chicken - low fat, low carb, high protein

    Low carbohydrate burritos. I use a low carb tortilla that is also low calorie and low sodium. I’ll eat around 1-pound of super lean ground hamburger, turkey or chicken in them. Usually some shredded queso or mild cheddar cheese too. In the winter time I will add no-salt black beans, brown rice and a little hot sauce. I’m sure they weigh about 3-4 pounds when they are complete 😂🤣

    When I started this journey I had frozen salmon and edamame every single night for about a year. I loved it and it never got old with different seasonings. Now that I'm not losing as much I make lots of soups and those go a long way to keeping me satisfied without SO much calories.

    Super fast and filling -- half an avocado on toast. Add sliced tomatoes and a sprinkle of salt and pepper. Yummy and keeps me satisfied until lunch time.
