    Ryvita and rice crackers and cakes can be spread with many things including veggies.

    Baked potatoes with filling.


    Homemade soups. Lentil and carrot with ginger is good.

    Curry's are very filling and I make veggie ones with hardcooked eggs for the extra protein.

    Take any veggies and add onion, garlic, Patakis curry paste(I only use one teaspoon, don't follow jar directions), curry powder to taste. I add sometimes crushed tomatoes too, just simmer them all together till everything falls into a curry and serve with brown rice.

    Often the "fillers" in prepack foods are what add calories, things like cornstarch and potato starch and of course all the added sugars.

    I do think baked spuds are so easy and good for you too.

    Love Annie Cromwell (I am trying to lose too right now as I gained 20lbs for no good reason recently) I lost 3lbs up till now. Oh Agave as sweetner instead of sugar.

    Fajitas, REALLY EASy, If you have the energy, use boneless breasts and cut in hunks or strips. If no energy, buy the tenderloins and use them AS IS.

    In olive oil, cook chicken breast strips and strips of green and red peppers. Toss in a bunch of garlic. Fresh chopped if you have energy, or if no energy, crushed from the jar.

    Heat (fat free)flour tortilla and fill with chicken and peppers. Top with fresh chopped jalapenos and salsa. If no energy, use the jar jalapenos. REALLY EASY. AND DELICIOUS
