yes, chicken and prawns - great l/f protein. hmm will try the frozen yogurt/greek yogurt and mixing up my fruit/nuts. Cost is an issue though and apples and carrots are just so cheap!

thanks for your reply cassie

Hmm..

Greek Yogurt
Chicken breasts
Ground turkey
"Perfect Pinch" no-salt spice mixes
fruit, especially bananas, apples, strawberries
shrimp
fish (esp. tilapia and salmon)
beans
multi-vitamin
Laughing Cow cheese
Skinny Cow frozen treats (for when I must have ice cream)

That's off the top of my head - FitDay and nutritional calculators too!! Support and information, definitely two must-haves.

These are pretty much the things I eat on a daily basis to help me overcome the muchnies, nip the sweet cravings, flavor my water, or do a quick meal replacement smoothie. If I didn't have the things in this list I'd be totally hopeless here lol Also my electric Grill and hand mixer!

Default Lean Pockets!

For me, it's Lean Pockets. There are SO many yummy flavors and it's an easy way for me to keep my calories in check at lunch time. Since I work full time, it's easy to grab and eat at my desk with a serving of light pringles and a diet coke!

This is something I figured out while trying to increase my protein. I never ate this my entire life but I eat the every week now. I have it as a snack or dessert.

1/2 cup canned pineapple chunks, liquids drained
1/4 cup fat free cottage cheese
add a sprinkle of Lawry's Seasoned Salt. (I know salt is bad, but it's what makes this so good)

The whole thing is about 95 calories.

It's also good on cantaloupe, too.

Other must have items:
Apples, Strawberries, Bananas, Grapes
Almonds
Chicken, Turkey, Fish - Tilapia and Salmon
Brown Rice
Sweet Potatoes
Legumes
Oatmeal
Eggs
Skim Milk
Water

Smile

fat-free cheese (cottage cheese, american cheese, mozzarella, cream cheese, and so on)

100-calorie bags of microwave popcorn

liquid egg whites (buy in a carton at the supermarket)

bran crackers

plain, unflavored whey (Bob's Red Mill is just one example) for making fruit smoothies

bags of pre-washed salad greens for a quick, easy salad

individually wrapped chicken breasts, already frozen, to keep in the freezer

chicken broth to make a non-cream soup with various vegetables

Low-fat Lay's potato chips (contain Olestra, which can cause some people to have a digestive reaction - don't know what that is, but I've never had it and these things are unbelievably tasty for a potato chip lover....!)
