Just read the article "Fuel Your Body with Whole Foods" . Found a great recipe: Banana Flax Pancake. I don't normally like pancakes, but this is only one cake, and now I know what I'll do with those blueberries in the fridge. I'll bet even sautéed veggies on top would be good, too!

I just made some tonight so I can either take it with me to work for lunches or have as a go-to dinner meal. This time it has ground turkey, vidalia onion, green peppers, mushrooms, diced tomatoes,chinese radish,and yellow squash. Mmmmm....Mmmm. GOOD.

Has anyone tried making what I call turkey chili- its basically scrambled ground turkey meat then you add in onions, mushrooms, green peppers, tomatoes, kidney beans and let in simmer. You can put it over steamed brown rice or a baked potatoe. During the summer I add in summer squash.

I usually have a Progresso light or Healthy Choice soup for my lunch at work, I think I might need to add more veggies in them to help with the filling factor.
Has anyone tried Metamucil added to their drink or the bars to help get more fiber and deal with the hunger factor? I have been considering it since I am noticing I have a lack of fiber, folate, and sometimes protein. Does anyone use protein powder and in what way- do you add it to a smoothie?
I find my calories add up quickly when I snack, even if they are healthier choices of say apple with peanut butter, a protein bar, cheese with some melba toasts. When I snack my range for the day is more at mid-level. Still trying to find a good balance. I find drinking herbal tea a great way too.

That's a good idea. In the past, I've had hot water with lemon. That works too.

I will sometimes drink hot water before a meal to help curb my appetite.

A salad or a lite soup do help to fill you up so you don't overdo it with your meal.
Continue the good work.

I try to start most meals with a salad. This helps fill me up but also "wears out my jaws" so I don't feel like eating much after.

I put raw kale, spinach, apple, or jicama in my smoothies to keep me full longer...

One of the things that helps me stay full is to eat my meals within 3-4 hours of one another! As long as I do that, I don't struggle with getting over hungry and therefore eat out of control. I take a break in the afternoon and enjoy some fruit or a protein bar and that tides me over til supper. emoticon

I make sure my snacks are high fiber snacks. That gets me through the times when I get the munchies so I don't sabotage myself.

I have at least 1 snack, but sometimes I feel very full when I have the snacks. I try to get the nutrients in my meals and end up feeling stuffed with so much food. I am learning to plan the right foods but haven't mastered it yet.

I enjoyed this article and intend to follow up on some of the tips. I especially will try to have more soup with my meals and add vegetables to them. I will try to eat slower and savor my food. I tend to eat quickly.
