I have found that I need protein. I do eat my 2 servings of whole grains every day. And I always get my dairy.

One food that always seems to please and keeps me filled up is a baked potato with fat free sour cream. The article listed boiled potatoes, but I assume baked would be just as filling.

Mimi, I LOVE beans and your recipe sounds delicious. Now that the weather is turning colder I will be fixing it. I like all types of beans but is seems that for the calories they contain I have to limit them. I usually have once or twice a week though.

You're eating so healthy! Great! Cood for you!

I also feel full eating legums (beans) and whole-grains.
Fruits and vegetables don't make me as full as beans and whole-grains, but they help.

My favorite satisfying meal is what's now in the slow cooker. So easy to make!

I saute until carmalized with 1 teaspoon of olive 3 (three) JIANT sweet onions, sliced.

I put in the slow cooker and add:
1 cup dry lima beans (not even soaking them)
1 cup of hulled barley
1 small marrow bone (for flavor)
Lots of spices (I love spicy foods)
2 cans (14.5 ounce each) of low sodium beef broth
Add water to cover it all

Cook 1 hour on high and then 8-10 more hours on low in the slow cooker

Sometimes I have to add a little more water.
It sould be like a stew.

Legums and whole-grains make it a FULL PROTEIN.

Yummy!

That was a great article Mimi and very accurate. I find eating whole foods keeps me satisfied. I love whole grains, fresh fruit and vegetables and am learning to cook in a much more healthy way. I have a small amount of protein at each meal also. Usually cottage cheese, yogurt or tofu for breakfast and lunch and some type of meat for dinner.
