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.

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.

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
Almonds, fruit, veggies, Rise Bars, and KIND bars.

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.
If you have formed the habit of checking on every new diet that comes along, you will find that, mercifully, they all blur together, leaving you with only one definite piece of information: french-fried potatoes are out. ~~Jean Kerr

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.
7/6/12 9:15 A
Hamburgers made with lean beef. That is my all time comfort food
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.

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.
