After work, I was starving and was munching on many different snack foods when I decided to cook a large plate full of frozen broccoli. I sprinkled some hot chili oil and seasoning on top, then ate it. It almost immediately stopped my feelings of hunger. Fortunately I ate that, because otherwise I would have eaten a lot more snack foods. So from now on, I will make sure that I have some vegetables on hand and also find something else to keep me busy while they cook. I prefer cooked vegetables.
Cooked vegetables provide more nutrition. See article: http://www.redorbit.com/news /health/1397869/raw_vegg ies_not_always_better_th an_cooked

I'm not crazy about vegetables or salad. So in order to get my veggies in sometimes, I make vegetable soup. It's low in calories, and if you can get a broth for the base that is low in sodium, it's pretty healthy and filling. I use celery, onion, carrots, green beans, corn, peas, peppers, cabbage, and sometimes potatoes. If you buy the bags of frozen veggies, it's also very quick and easy!
