I just make up my own soup, so I know there isn't much sodium in it. I use a lot of herbs in place of the sodium and a lot of vegetables. Sometime I put chicken in it. I love having it all ready just to heat up everyday for lunch.

Good luck.

Thanks for all the suggestions. I'm starting on my weight-loss journey tomorrow and needed to know what to stock up on.

One problem I find is that, in the winter, salads are so cold. I'd rather have soups, but they're filled with sodium. Can you suggest anything to warm a person up yet not be calorie or sodium-laden?

What I eat usually varies but a few things remain constant. I always have at least one serving of vegetables, one serving of fruit, a dairy item (either skim milk, low carb/low fat yogurt or a low fat cheese). My meal usually is about 45 - 50 grams of carbohydrates and about 20 to 30 grams of protein.

It varies a lot now that I'm retired and home all the time. But when I was working I ate lots of different types of salads. I'd take a bowl of salad (bagged) and top it with various kinds of meat. Sometimes cold (chicken salad, tuna salad) or sometimes hot (taco meat, taco soup, cubed chicken, etc). The volume of the salad was satisfying and the meat stayed with me. I still eat that way quite often, but sometimes I'll just bake a potato or sweet potato in the microwave and have it with left over meat or even mixed veggies.

I often have ricotta cheese with cut up apple and a few raisons and walnuts...and a big glass of milk. I love it and find it very satisfying and a cross between a meal and a dessert!

I'm not a big salad fan, but do eat it now and then. I do like homemade soup and make it often, especially chicken vegetable and chicken w/ brown rice. I also love a good sandwich, but I have to watch the bread. I use Ezekiel bread, made of whole grains, no flour in it. It's a so-so substitute for the real thing.

With the cold weather, I usually make a healthy soup every week, something with a lot of veggies. That's usually my lunch followed by an apple or some kind of fruit.

I love lunch! I have a big family, so other meals are centered around what I can get everyone to eat, what's reasonable in price, and can be made in an hour or less. But for lunch, I get to eat MY favorite stuff, which VERY often is a salad. Almost always has cubed cooked chicken in it. I have 300 calories allotted for lunch.

My base is romaine and artisan lettuce

Sometimes, I use precut coleslae and mix asian dressing with fat free mayo and a tiny bit of soy sauce and add bean sprouts, green olives, chicken and mandarin oranges.

With the romaine and greens I also make

chicken / feta / apple. The dressing is 1T light mayo, 1T honey mustard (not honey mustard dressing) and 1 T cider vinegar

spicy chicken taco - chicken, 1/2 serving crumbled tortilla chips, tomato, green onion and Brianna's Chipotle Cheddar dressing

Raspberry Walnut with blue cheese - chicken (again LOL), blue cheese crumbles, red onion light raspberry walnut dressing

I use a ton of greens (like 4 cups) and these salads keep my veggie count up, are filling and delicious (to me, I know some ppl don't like salad)

I also like cooked cubed chicken breast sprinkled with chipotle seasoning mixed with jasmine rice and spicy black beans (good fiber in this one)

Another thing I love is 1 serving of whole wheat pasta dressing with thinned peanut butter mixed with a little soy sauce and asian garlic chili sauce for quick Thai peanut noodles. You only need about 1 T peanut butter for this. Comfort food for me without going overboard on calories.

Just some ideas for ya~

I've gotten to where I'm eating a lot of fresh crab salad. It's healthy and it's something I can make a large amount of and freeze in single serve containers and just take one out the night before and let it thaw in the refridgerator, for the next days lunch.

We had mashed potatos,mushrooms and corn, refried beans mixed with heated chorizo, red cabbage with red onions cooked with balsamic ving. and then some fresh fruit topped with low cal yogurt. Works for me! A variation would be spaghetti with homemade sc. or persian rice with lots of extra vegetables. Supper around here is usually boring with me eating quesidillas and salsa and Charlie has a lot of grilled cheese and ham sandwichs. Boring but we like them.
