So filling and delicious: toasted whole wheat bagel with peanut butter! It's fairly calorie-dense (about 450 kcal), so perhaps a bit much for a snack, but I love it for breakfast.

Lemon Lentil Soup

Apple cranberry lentils with potatoes- dh and I found this to be very filling



Hummus- super easy to make and very filling. Use as a dip or a sandwich spread.
Pita chips- just cut up some pita bread and bake for 10 minutes or so in 350F or 400 F oven. You can brush them with olive oil or spray with cooking spray and add seasonings before baking if you want.
Hard boiled eggs
Nuts and seeds
Fruit and plain yogurt
Fruit smoothie
Raw vegetables- sliced zucchini, tomatoes, carrots, celery, peppers

Portabella mushrooms, they're only around 30 cals and are soooo filling. I make a stuffed portabella mushroom with canned salmon, low fat cream cheese, milk, egg whites and celery, shredded carrot and green bell pepper, topped with shredded low fat chedder and green onion. It's around 150 cals and full of protein and fiber. You can always add a bit of olive oil for healthy fats. It's super filling.

Egg white omelettes (you can add a whole egg if you choose)- I usually put sweet potato, onion and mushroom in mine and sometimes add a bit of shredded cheddar or parmesan.

Black bean brownies- About 100 cals. Make a batch and freeze them. Then just microwave one for about 45-60 seconds. They're easy to make. They're full of fiber, protein and healthy fat. Very satisfying and the texture just melts in your mouth. Here's the recipe:

Greek yogurt parfait- plain Greek yogurt, some berries, natural crunchy peanut butter drizzled on top and I use Kashi Go Lean, High Fiber, High Protein cereal on top. Covers your fiber, protein and healthy fats. If you want to sweeten it up a bit you can use honey, banana, unsweetened applesauce, no sugar added jam. I actually mix up a bit of sugar free pudding mix with almond milk to give it more bulk and turn it into a dessert but I know a lot people have issues with the aspartame used in sugar free pudding.

Classic salad- I usually do Salmon or chicken breast with kale/romaine from my garden and black beans, sweet potato, green pepper or cucumber and a fruit (usually strawberries, mango or tangarines).

As far as dinners go, I'm a pretty simple gal. Usually chicken breast or broiled salmon with a fibrous veg or two (broccoli, mushrooms, green beans, cauliflower, etc) and a starchy carb (corn on the cob or sweet potato).

Lunches are usually wraps/sandwiches or a salad but those can get a little complicated and I eat so many different ones. Today I'm having one in a weight watchers pita with chicken breast, mushrooms, onions, kale, dried cranberries, cashews and Greek yogurt with lime juice. Yesterday, I made a salmon "pizza"- WW pita, canned salmon, cucumbers, apples, mushrooms and shredded cheddar baked in the oven until crispy.
