Baked apples with cinnamon!  It tastes just like a dessert, but it’s so healthy!

I constantly have the munchies so now I just bring a big bag of grapes with me and slowly munch on them throughout the day.

I only eat chicken and fish too – for the most part. It’s important to switch up what you’re eating so you don’t get bored. Like Monday will be salmon night, Tuesday will be honey chicken, Wednesday will be tilapia, Thursday will be lemon chicken, etc. I’m always trying to mix up new recipes because I get bored with food easily.

Sometimes if I am bored of eating a turkey sandwich for lunch I’ll make a grilled chicken salad.

Lately I’ve been on a red pepper dipped in hummus kick.

Check out Skinny Taste, I love everything I’ve made off there! It’s my new favourite site. She has a whole snack recipe section, I’m sure you’d find some awesome stuff there!

Right now I’m eating:

Breakfast: Cereal with milk, coffee

Snack: Apple & Cheese stick or 25 almonds or 49 pistachios.

Lunch: PB&J or Soup or Soup and Salad or leftovers from dinner the previous night.

Snack: Carrots & cucumbers with Ranch dressing.

Dinner: I make all sorts of things!  Usually a lean meat with some sort of whole wheat carb and veggies.  I use Cooking Light recipes A LOT!

 

Other snacks I like to eat are: raisins, a banana, peach, pear, ants on a log, peanut butter on a banana, peanuts, trail mix, beef jerkey, turkey pepperoni, a small piece of dark chocolate.

 

Hope this helps!!

@TinyTina: I second the veggies and hummus!

@twist: I second the edamame beans!  Our local Costco used to sell these frozen microwavable pouches of them and they discontinued em–so sad.

@mrs.peters.to.be: I know what you mean about getting bored with all the healthy, bland food.  I like to bring hard boiled eggs to work and just eat the whites with a little S+P (ok, tons of pepper).  Also, I’m not a vegetarian, but I like all the Morningstar stuff too, especially the fake sausage patties (mixed in to an egg white omelette with some sriracha) and the chipotle black bean burgers (serve with salsa and guacamole).  Oatmeal with skim milk is good if you want something warm and filling too.  And coffee!

I vote for nuts, celery with peanut butter, or fruit.

@jenewitt: Seriously, every single thing I have made from there is AWESOME. I made her turkey meatballs (but used chicken instead because Darling Husband couldn’t find ground turkey for whatever reason) and he said it was one of his favourite meals ever. We’re  pretty much working our way through her Top Twenty of 2010 and enjoying everything there. Tonight I’m going to try out her apple crisp made with agave nectar. Mmmmm! Someone else here on WB recommended her site, and I’ve been hooked since!

Western Bagel is a bagel company that not only has bagel locations, they also sell their bagels bagged in many grocery stores.  They have a high fiber bagel that is sold is many stores – eat one of these – about 150 calories and couple it with low fat cream cheese.  While it’s great to just eat protein, the MOST FILLING thing you can eat is something HIGH IN FIBER.  This leaves you full for far longer and it also helps clean out your system (putting it nicely) since fiber cannot be processed into your body, it is pooped out, which also helps grab onto other things to dispell as well.
