I like cottage cheese topped with strawberries or pineapple( or other fruit). I also enjoy pistachios with a pear.

Between meals, I like to do a boiled egg and some strawberries or a string cheese and some grapes. If I'm crazy hungry but not ready for a full meal, I'll do four or five Wheat Thins with a *little* bit of peanut butter on top of each one.

apples and pears are easy to carry and full of fiber to help stave hunger for a while. add to that some protein, say a string cheese.

For me there is nothing more filling or delicious than a few pieces of fresh coconut emoticon

This takes a good while to chew, is refreshing and tastes soooo good!

I can have some mid-morning and not be hungry again until after 2pm. Full of healthy nutrients too for your heart and brain.

I agree with staying hydrated. What many mistake as hunger is actually thirst. I find that a few almonds or light string cheese (fat and protein) keeps me satisfied.

Try this seriously. Even when I am out of my mind hungry this really works!
Try one of Yoplait 100 calorie Greek yogurts and mix into it 2 tsp. of sliced almonds. It is especially good in the cherry , lime and lemon flavors! There is something about this combination that takes away hunger! emoticon

Protein. FYI Studies were done using the same basic recipe only changing the amount of either more protein,carbs or fat in the food. The people were then placed in a room with no windows or devices to let them know how much time had passed. They were to let the researchers know when they were hungry. The ones who had more protein stayed full longer.

ICEDEMETER, can I come next time? Excellent planning and packing. Sounds like you made a point of not noshing from the cooler while driving, that is a good strategy to use the food to satisfy hunger and not just boredom.

I've recently shifted from low fat vegetarian to low carb vegetarian. I'm counting every stinking little gram of carb, after years of getting several hundred of those suckers every day. The nice thing is that it helps stop snacking and hunger pangs. I'd throw in some low carb zucchini hummus to go with all the veggies and be very content.

Nuts, egg whites and protein bars work for me. Protein keeps me fuller longer and prevents that feeling that you want to eat everything in sight because you are so hungry.

I eat away from home a lot. My favorite take-along mini meals:

- 2 sticks of light string cheese plus an apple and some baby carrots
- half a yellow pepper stuffed with chicken salad made with 3 oz shredded chicken, 2-3T plain 0% greek yogurt, mustard to taste, and 1 T mayo, plus salt and pepper
- a homemade sweet potato muffin (like banana muffins, only with mashed sweet potato instead of banana, and I use white whole wheat flour and a minimal amount of sugar in the batter, usually 1/4-1/3 c. for 12 muffins), plus 2 sticks of light string cheese

I use a frozen juice box as an icepack in my insulated soft-sided lunch bag. It keeps things cold for a long time, and if I forget about it or lose it somewhere, no big loss. It's also a lot smaller than many of the icepacks available.

Take life one day at a time - enjoy today before you worry about tomorrow.

I agree with the others about veggies & dip. I'm currently chowing down on pea pods & hummus (Trader Joe's Jalapeno & Cilantro is my favorite) every day.

For me, I try to avoid salty foods or crackers. It is so easy to mindlessly eat with items like that.

I'd pack light string cheese, portioned deli meat (like Carl Budding turkey packs -- I've been doing those a lot lately), bars (Clif, Belvita, Luna, Nature Valley), and fruit (banana, apple, pear).

I'd also pack a lot of water. Clean out a milk jug & fill it with water, keeping it in the trunk. Keeping yourself hydrated will help keep the munchies away, and it will keep you full.

We never went on a car trip without a bag of cut up fresh vegies to eat. If you have a cooler, you could take yogurt or string cheese, along with sliced meat for sandwiches. Just think about what you would normally eat that could be prepared ahead of time, eaten cold, or stored in a thermos bottle. Sandwiches and salads can be prepared ahead for at least the first day, and you can take additional fixings if you're going to be gone more than one day. With a cooler, its also easy to stop at a grocery store and restock, as well.

Not really sure what else to suggest. Most of the things I can think of for road snacks are things like crackers and popcorn.

It really depends on the length of the trip, whether you'll be packing a cooler or not, and whether you're planning on eating while you're driving or if you'll be stopping for snack / meal breaks.

This week we had 4 people out on 3 different 12-hour day trips, so we packed the cooler and stopped to eat every couple of hours. In our cooler was packages with:

- cut up broccoli, cauliflower, celery, carrots, cucumbers, grape tomatoes, and snap peas
- cut up cantaloupe and watermelon
- strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, and apples
- onion dill dip made with greek yogurt
- Babybel cheese portions
- sliced up steak, chicken, and pork loin (all planned leftovers from previous dinners)
- assortment of whole grain bread, whole grain pitas, and leaf lettuce to use as wraps
- horseradish mustard and dijon mustard
- peanut butter
- individual portions of yogurt
- boiled eggs
- home-made oat bran muffins, peanut butter coconut balls, and oatmeal raisin cookies
- quinoa salad with almonds, spinach, gruyere, and onions
- popcorn
- lots of water and a small selection of juices
- lots of coffee
- dark chocolate
- almonds

We ate 5 or 6 times each day, and were able to each have different, balanced meals every time, as well as have a variety of snacks. It seems like enough food for a small army, but really it all fit nicely in to a large cooler and one shopping bag. I'm the only one watching what I'm eating, so this mix made it really easy for me to pre-portion mine out and store them separately in plastic bags.

The big thing, though, is to not forget a few plates, some cutlery, a garbage bag, and some cloths for washing your hands.

Most of what we brought are also great finger-foods, so can be nibbled while driving, too.

Hope you have fun on the road!

Afraid of a colonoscopy? Believe me - they are much less frightening than surgery and chemotherapy.

Colonoscopies allow polyps to be removed before they can become cancer, or let cancers be found before they are too widespread. If you are 50 or older, or have any symptoms, please don't let fear stop you from covering your butt.

We always pack a lunch for the first day out consisting of pbj's. Whole wheat bread and the jelly is no sugar added. That plus either grapes or bananas. Also we carry a trail mix and a measuring cup for me so I don't go crazy. And water!

I eat baby carrots and a snack pack of peanut butter between meals. Are you carb counting? This might be a little high in carbs for you but it is filling.

If hunger isn't the problem, food is not the answer.

I'm for protein and vegies with some healthy fat. Hard boiled eggs and a bunch of raw and/or cold cooked vegetables with a little salad dressing or mayo? Tuna and same? With maybe a whole grain starch. A meat and real cheese sandwich on whole grain lavash or Deli Thins with vegies? Don't know whether that works with your diabetic needs or not. Also don't know whether this is a day trip or extended.

Trying to live binge-free.

For on the road? I would say go for sandwiches - wholemeal small loaf - 50kcals per slice. Fill with cottages cheese with a variety of different flavours i.e. chives, herbs and garlic or add your own flavourings to this cheese and it is also very low calorie compared to normal cheeses. You could fill up the sandwhich with onions, tomatoes, lettuce and low low cheddar spread which is very good - 20g is around 41 calories and it tastes very good.

You could also make some low-fat and low calorie quiche and take along with you - all these things are diabetic friendly as they are low glycemic.

You could take a flask of soup with some ryvita crackers - there's the ones that set you back 19 calories per big slice of cracker which are very crunchy and great for dipping into soups. Go for thick soups with chunky veg which is filling and satisfying but low on calories and low gi.

Apples and oranges tend to be good too, but just check your reaction to these - boiled eggs are very good also and lower gi than fruits. Other than this I would say you could have some home made pasta with tons of veggies - use a smaller amount of wholemeal pasta and more veg and protein to get a better deal.

I like Zero Impact bars from VPX - they are formulated to have a minimal impact on blood sugar levels and they're quite tasty too - www.vpxsports.com/muscle-building-suppleme

Does anyone have some good filling take along foods for on the road? I sometimes take nuts but can easily over eat those. am diabetic so need to be careful with dried fruits. Sometimes an apple and a baggie of nuts is what I have tried so far Any other ideas?
