I keep a basket of healthy snacks on my kitchen counter and reach into it when I need something. It includes 100 calorie almond packs, cups of diced peaches and mandarin oranges packed in water, 60 calorie packs of prunes, sugar-free pudding cups, and fresh fruit.
All have 100 calories or less.
If you select a small food portion in a few hours you will be hungry again. If you choose a large portion in the same number of hours you will be hungry again because the food has been digested and distributed to either energy or fat. Why not choose smaller.
i love finding new healthy versions of recipes I love since I love to cook - I use eatingwell.com a lot for this and have made some great tasting foods.
I keep cut up blocks of sugar free jello in the refrigerator. I add a couple teaspoons of yogurt to it and it makes a refreshing cool treat for the hot weather.
Nuke Birdseye Tuscan Veggies as directed... place 1/2 in wrap - add an optional sprinkle of cheese, wrap and go... filling and delicious :)
Instead of a cocktail, I make a green smoothie as soon as I get home. It staves off that end of the day hunger so I don't snack while fixing dinner and gives me two servings of fruits&vegetables. An added bonus - all that spinach has vastly improved my skin.
I don't keep trigger foods in my house. I only get them when I eat out - things like ice cream and macaroni and cheese are saved for when I go out to eat and my portions are a bit more controlled.
I find that if I eat an apple, pear, clementine or some kind of small fruit with my dinner that I feel much fuller, so smaller portions are not a big deal.
Try foods in their naked state, without butter, sauces and salt. You will often be surprised at how good food tastes all by itself. You'll save on unnecessary fat and sodium.
