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.

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.

Mainly eggs and chicken. I HAVE to have my protein, it is the only thing that keeps my hunger under control.

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.

garlic, onions and oregano as well as cinnamon and cayenne pepper.

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 wonderful new "go to" is found only at Whole Foods Market, I think. It is Health Starts Here Sesame Ginger dressing, no oil added! Is is the best!

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.

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.

Whole wheat pasta and fat free plain greek yogurt. The pasta, to make sure I get enough carbs and the yogurt, because it's so versatile!

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.

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.

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.
