VitaTops and VitaBrownies are delicious treats that are 100 calories each and 2 grams of fat. They have 50% of many vitamins and minerals. The VitaTops are like muffin tops and they come in several flavors. (Deep Velvety Chocolate & Banana Nut are my faves.) The VitaBrownie...well, it's a little brownie. They're not very sweet, but they satisfy. They're found in the freezer section where natural/organic foods are and are available in most chain grocery stores.

When I'm craving something sweet and cold, I go for about 1/2c of organic frozen dark cherries, put them in a bowl with about a 1/4c of almond milk (or skim or soy or yogurt even) and eat them up! The milk semi freezes the cherries and it's almost like Cherry Garcia ice cream.... only really good for you!
Sometimes I'll add a few fresh berries as well, just to amp up the nutrients! yum yum yum!
I eat a cup of broth-based soup with a little protein in it before my afternoon and evening meals. It really helps me feel satiated faster and keeps me from going back for seconds on more caloric items. For supreme convenience I make a big batch of soup on Sundays and freeze it in single-serving containers for the week.
Soup ideas include garden veggie, chicken and barley, escarole and spicy turkey sausage, or tofu tom yum.
