Here's a few ideas..........

3/4 cup All-Whites, 1/2 cup tiny broccoli florets and chopped tomatoes, 2 T parmesan cheese and 2 T salsa (on the side). Less than 150 calories!

BLT Salad...2-3 cups of romaine, 3 slices of low sodium or 3 slices of Oscar Mayer Ready Bacon, Plum Tomato slices, 2 Tbs. of Ken's lite Caesar dressing under 200 calories

9 Medium Shrimp are only 50 calories....surround them with Romaine add a teaspoon of cocktail sauce

2- 99% Fat Free Hebrew National hot dogs (80 Calories) slice up and scramble with egg whites add in egg whites...under 300 Calories

Shrimp Stack
1 Tsp. of Fage 0% plain yogurt
1 tsp/ of fresh lime juice
1/4 tsp. of Jalapeno sauce
1/4 Avocado
5 Large cooked Shrimp
Chopped Parsley and cracked black pepper
Stir yogurt, lime juice, sauce, avocado all together...Spread on a Wasa Cracker top with shrimp, parsley and pepper.
Around 130 Calories

3 ounces of grilled salmon over 1 cup of steamed spinach 151 calories and 1 cup of wild rice 164 calories...add some sliced or chopped onion and a few sliced mushrooms to the rice to make the meal denser.

You'll be surprised to learn you forgot how good real popcorn tastes. 3 cups of air popped popcorn 100 calories...add a little parm. High in nutrition.

2 chicken legs w/o the skin are 74 calories each.

4 ounces Jennie O Ground Turkey ( 120 Calories) sautéed in Kitchen Bouquet( 10 Calories), 1 small onion chopped, 1/2 green pepper chopped, shredded romaine add 2 Walmart Brand tacos @ 100 Calories and less fat///around 300 calories

Does your whole family need to be this restrictive?
Anyway heres an idea
When I make stir fry, I cook loads of veggies in a non stick skillet with a T of olive oil, I use brown rice and cook the meat for my husband. I eat a huge plate og veggies & rice and only consume about 150 calories or less. I get full ,plus I get fiber & nutrients from my meal. You can forego the olive oil, but I like the extra flavor it gives.

I just want to know for the days that I consume too many calories. Those are all great suggestions, and I appreciate the assistance.

I'm curious why it has to be less than 300 calories? That will limit items you have to choose from- Most starchy vegetables and fruits, for example.

Some ideas:

Asparagus- 6 large spears- 30 calories
4 oz skinless chicken breast- 140 calories
1/2 cup (75 grams) frozen peas- 60 calories
1/2 cup cooked carrot slices, 30 calories
3 oz lean pork chop - 175 calories
You could also make a side salad- 1/2 cup shredded lettuce, 1/2 tomato, 1/4 cup cucumber slices with 2 Tbsp Newman's Own light Italian dressing- 85 calories

These are only suggestions, it will depend a lot on what your family has a preference for.

Hope that helps.
