I really rely on nuts, hummus and veggies. Cottage cheese is another one that I go to when I'm in a pinch for protein, though it is high in sodium, so I try not to turn to it too frequently. I'll have it with a sweet potato, or straight out of the tub if I'm in a real hurry.

Peanut butter, bananas, red peppers!

Lost 65lbs in 15 months to get healthy and in top shape to try to get pregnant, and succeeded! Had our first baby in February 2013!

I only gained 32lbs in my pregnancy (and immediately lost half within a few weeks of his birth). April 1st is my full restart date.

Greek yogurt (0% fat) and chicken breast. If I don't have protein regularly I'm famished.

boiled eggs: easy to transport
greek yogurt: lots of protein
bananas: I feel like I'm cheating when I eat bananas

Eggs, because they can be prepared so quickly and keep me feeling full. Chicken for the same reason.

Eggs, for sure! They're simple to prepare in a bunch of different ways, not terribly expensive for a high quality product, and full of protein, healthy fats, and all sorts of vitamins as well.

Apples! I read somewhere the pectin in them helps suppress your appetite so I grab one whenever 'the munchies' are starting to hit me and it works.

Oat bran- To provide my body with enough fiber and minerals

Spinach - For my smoothie, to make it even healthier :)
Vegetables, all kinds: - To keep myself healthy, to aid digestion, to add variety to my diet
Fruit, especially blueberries, strawberries and oranges - To curb my sweet tooth

Chicken Breast - my fav protein because it's versatile, delicious, quick and filling
Fish (salmon, tuna, tilapia, cod, pangasius) - my second fav protein
Greek Yogurt/Cottage cheese - To get enough protein and thereby help my body recover from training

Nuts and seeds, especially almonds, pecans, coconut and poppy seed - They add healthy fats and help me reach a healthy caloric intake if I haven't eaten enough

My latest obsession is salads with chicken or turkey strips (Perdue is awesome for this.)

So, I would say salads, eggs, and oatmeal are my go-to's when I'm stuck, and pretty basic for me.

eggs or eggbeaters. I like to have a few hardboiled eggs in the fridge for a quick, high protein snack, and eggbeaters are great when you are starved because you get quite a bit of food for very few calories. scrambled with veggies and a little cheese they are quite filling.

I also love nonfat refried beans, although they are high in sodium. They are super filling and go with meat, eggs, etc.

I also like to have a big container of fresh salsa, either homemade or trader joe's, in the fridge. It's great on sandwiches, salads, eggs, and a big scoop is a serving of veggies.

chicken and spinach are our basics - when we're out it's time to go shopping!

7/6/12 11:10 A

Eggs, either hard boiled or scrambled with veggies
Smoothies made with fruits and veggies

I eat each of these 5-6 times a week.

Bananas - I throw one into my breakfast shakes every morning; and also zucchini because it is so easy to cook and very versatile so I can easily add it to almost any meal.

Greek yogurt is my go-to. Also, chicken and noodles (130 cal.) that you can heat up in the microwave makes for a good snack, except a little high in sodium.

Chicken breast and apples. They're my go-to items. I am trying to switch things up--to keep things interesting. Lately, I've made dishes with chicken thighs or lean beef. I'm still on my apple kick though.

Kashi GoLEAN Crunch- I just ran out and I am missing it.
Polly-O 2% is a good snack too.
We have been eating a lot of fish and ground turkey for meals.

Hamburgers made with lean beef. That is my all time comfort food

7/6/12 9:09 A

I switch it up a lot, because I get bored...but fruits, veggies, brown rice, wild rice, and chicken are my biggies. :-)

Non-fat yogurt and cottage cheese, chicken, carrots. The yogurt feels like a treat because of the sweetness, and the cottage cheese can be mixed into a lot of things. Chicken can be prepared any number of ways and I just love carrots!

A lot of chicken to make sure I'm getting enough protein. Spinach for salads. Onions and peppers.

Every passing minute is a another chance to turn it all around.

I eat a lot of high protein and go by the glycemic index. Works find for me because I am diabetic and it keeps my blood sugar down. emoticon emoticon

Something I like daily is 1/2 cup of a generic Fiber One cereal. 50 calories for that half cup, and it's a nice afternoon snack with a piece of fruit. I eat it dry. I can't live without my morning greek yogurt, either.

And why? I've been eating a lot of low-sugar low-salt baked beans in tomato sauce, a great substitute for pure carbs as I have difficulty getting my protein quota for the day.
