Do you crave a prolonged eating experience? Fresh sliced mushrooms are "my new potato chip". When my mind is craving that snacky eating experience, I just measure out a cup (maybe 2) of sliced fresh mushrooms, and satisfy my mind without completely blowing my nutrition.
I may never eat a real potato chip again! 334
1/4 Cup of no-fat cottage cheese is a great sub for sour cream to top a baked potato - no fat and you load up on a few proteins. It tastes great. I also throw on a few chopped onions or chives. Make a meal of it by sauteeing onions, green peppers and fresh mushrooms to add on top - grated cheese opt
1/4 C no-fat cottage cheese has only 40 cal. and 8g protein and no fat, of course!
if i am eating soup, progresso light, or such, i add about a cup of fresh mushrooms and whatever other veggies i like. today was 1 cup of mushrooms & 1 serving of baby carrots. i cut them up and microwaved them till they were soft and added them to my sodium laden soup. added vegetable servings! helped fill me up! and gave my quick go to lunch soup, a fresh taste :) add a piece of fresh fruit or a whole grain light english muffin (or both!) and it's filling lunch or dinner!
