Healthy Low-Calorie Foods You Can Eat A Lot OfEatingWell2

Grab these foods when you want to eat larger portions without doing serious diet damage.
There are some days where my stomach feels like a bottomless pit. Usually I try to distract myself by going for a walk, drinking water or chatting with a friend. But sometimes my hunger rages All. Day. Long—no matter what tricks I try (please tell me you can relate). When I know I’m going to be munching more than usual, I try to do the least amount of damage to my diet by choosing foods that are low in calories and satisfy my cravings. That means I reach for foods that take up a lot of space in my tummy for not a lot of calories. I’m not suggesting you throw portion control to the wind (see healthy portions here)—but here are some feel-full options that deliver satisfaction on fewer calories for days when you’re feeling hungrier than usual.
1. Popcorn
Popcorn totally satisfies a craving for a salty, crunchy snack. Yum. Foods that are filled with air, like popcorn, trick us into thinking we’re eating more, according to Barbara Rolls, Ph.D., author of The Ultimate Volumetrics Diet. I love our Lemon-Parm Popcorn, which is packed with flavor and delivers just 99 calories in 1½ cups. As a bonus, popcorn counts as a whole grain. Most of us don’t eat enough whole grains, which deliver more fiber than refined grains. Air-popped popcorn is the lowest calorie choice, and be sure to avoid popcorns that claim to be “movie-theater” style, as they tend to be high in calories and sodium…..
2. Soup
Broth-based soups are “souper”-filling, since water or broth adds volume without adding too many (or any!) calories. That means you get to eat a lot more of it—so go for the black bean soup instead of the refried beans if you want to dish out a larger serving. Plus, according to an Obesity Research study, women who ate low-cal soup twice daily for a year lost 50 percent more weight than women who ate the same number of calories from energy-dense snacks. Try this Veggiestrone soup (a riff on a popular Weight-Watchers recipe), which has only 169 calories in a 2-cup serving….

Today’s Menu: Chili Dogs

 

Cincy Chili Dogs 003

 

It is one freezing cold day out there, maybe 20 degrees out. I guess we ended up with about 5, maybe 5 1/2 inches of snow. It is sunny out so that’s helping to clear the streets a bit. More Winter weather on the way for tomorrow though. Warm and snug on the inside and for dinner a huge favorite of mine, Chili Dogs!

 

 
I used Oscar Mayer Extra Lean Turkey Franks, my new choice of Hot Dogs. Just boiled them for 5 minutes and they were ready. I had planned on using some of the 3 Bean Buffalo Chili but I had none in the freezer left, I’ll be making a new batch this week to cure that problem! So instead I used Hormel Turkey Chili with Beans. Emptied the can into a small sauce pan and heated it up for about 10 minutes or so. I did add a few shakes of Frank’s Red Hot Sauce to the Chili as it was heating up.

 

 

 

Served everything on a Healthy Life Whole Grain Hot Dog Bun. Topped the Dog with French’s Yellow Mustard, Sargento Reduced Fat Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese, and then the Chili and they were ready to go! Nothing better than a couple of Cincinnati Style Chili Dogs! For dessert later a Skinny Cow Truffle Ice Cream Bar.

Today’s Menu: Fried Walleye w/ Au Gratin Potato Casserole, Green Beans, and Whole Grain Bread.

 

Fried Walleye 004

 

Long night and day, dealing with a sinus infection. Every time there’s a shift in the weather my sinuses let me know! High of only in the 20’s coming this weekend they say. Our new microwave came in, just waiting to have it installed above the stove. For dinner tonight I prepared Fried Walleye w/ Au Gratin Potato Casserole, Green Beans, and Whole Grain Bread

 

 

 

I had bought a couple of large Walleye Fillets while at Costco yesterday. I cut one up and froze it and cut the other one into smaller Fried Walleye 001Fillets and prepared them for dinner. After cutting it up into smaller Fillets I rinsed them off in cold water and patted dry with paper towel. Seasoned them with Sea Salt and Ground Black Pepper. Put them in a Hefty Plastic Bag and added some Progresso Italian Style Bread Crumbs, sealed the bag and shook till all fillets were well coated. I then fried them in Canola Oil on medium heat, about 3 to 4 minutes per side till golden brown! love Walleye, as I do most Fish. With Crappie their my favorite Fresh Water Fish to eat. Everyone agreed that was some of the freshest tasting Walleye I had ever purchased, so good job Costco!

 

 

 

Then for one side dish I baked a Idahoan Homestyle Au Gratin Potato Casserole. Hard to beat the Idahoan Potato Casseroles, easy to prepare and all come out delicious! I also heated up a can of Del Monte Low Sodium Cut Green Beans and a couple of slices of buttered Klosterman Wheat Bread. For dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Double Chocolate Pudding.

 

 

 

Idahoan Homestyle Au Gratin Potato CasseroleIdahoan Au Graten
There’s no better way to start a savory Au Gratin Homestyle Casserole than with world-famous Idaho® potatoes, which is why you’ll taste only 100% grown-in-Idaho potatoes in this rich & cheesy side. For family meals or for special occasions, this cheesy, delicious dish is sure to please.
Oven Directions
Best for Golden Browning
PREHEAT oven to 450°F. COMBINE potatoes and sauce mix in 1 1/2 quart baking dish.
STIR in 1 1/2 cups boiling water, 3/4 cup milk, and 1 1/2 Tbsp. margarine or butter with whisk.
BAKE uncovered for 25 minutes or until top is golden brown and potatoes are tender (sauce will thicken slightly when cooling).
Remove from oven and let stand a few minutes before serving.

Today’s Menu: Mushroom and Sharp Cheddar Turkey Burger w/ Baked Fries

 

Mushroom Cheddar Turkey Burger 002
Oh yeah it was about 12 degrees this morning! Sunny but a cold day today. I hadn’t been to Costco in a while so they open at 10:00 am. so I was there when they opened, best time to get an electric cart that’s fully charged. Picked up 2 big and beautiful Walleye Fillets, after cutting them down I’ll get at least 6 nice size smaller fillets. Picked up some other bulk items that I was running low on and picked up some items that always gets me in the Holiday Spirit. I bought a case of Green Beans, Baked Beans, and a case of Turkey Stuffing and delivered to our local food shelter. I’m a firm believer that it is better to give than receive. And with so many people in need it feels good to help when you can. For dinner tonight, Mushroom and Sharp Cheddar Turkey Burger w/ Baked Fries.

 

 
I used Jennie – O Turkey Burger Patties (Lean). Only 180 calories and 9 g fat and already made into patties. Pan fried it in a 1/2 Tbs of Canola Oil and seasoned it with Sea Salt and Ground Black Pepper. I served it on an Aunt Millie’s Reduced Calorie Whole Grain Bun and topped with a slice of Sargento Reduced Fat Sharp Cheddar. I also baked some Ore Ida Simply Cracked Black Pepper and Sea Salt Country Style Fries. Served these with a side Daisy Reduced Fat Sour Cream. For dessert later a Del Monte No Sugar Added Mango Chunk Cup.

Today’s Menu: Cast Iron Skillet Baked Pork Chop w/ Sliced New Potatoes, 3 Bean Salad, and Whole Grain Bread.

 

Baked Chop 3 Bean salad 003
I had a Pork Chop stored in the freezer that I put in the fridge to thaw overnight. Next day I marinated the Chop in JB’s Fat Boy Haug Waush BBQ Sauce for 4 hours in the fridge. To prepare it I used a Cast Iron Skillet, just something about the Cast Iron Skillets that I love using them. Added about 1/2 tablespoon of Canola Oil to the Skillet and browned both sides I then moved to the oven, which I had preheated on 400 degrees. I then baked it for about 22 minutes. I pulled it out when it hit 155 degrees (internal temperature) and let it set for 5 minutes to let it finish cooking. I love Chops marinated in JB’s BBQ Sauce, and this one was delicious! The JB’s BBQ Sauce is the perfect marinade for any Pork.

 

 
For one side dish I heated up a can of Del Monte Sliced New Potatoes, boiled until heated and seasoned with Sea Salt, Ground Black Pepper, and Parsley Flakes. I also prepared a can of Read 3 Bean Salad. It comes in a can and you can prepare it various ways. I just opened the can and put it in a plastic bowl, put the lid on, and set in the refrigerator to chill for a couple of hours or so. I served these cold. I also had a slice of Klosterman Wheat Bread that I buttered with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter. For dessert later a Del Monte No Sugar Added Peach Chunk Cup.

 

 
Read 3 Bean SaladRead 3 Bean 2

Fresh green and yellow string beans, wholesome red kidney beans, spicy onions, and red peppers in delicately flavored tangy vinaigrette are what our 3 bean salad is all about. For added flavor and a different twist, try our 4 bean mixture with garbanzo beans. Made with the finest kidney and black beans, whole kernel corn, hominy, and red and green peppers, our read southwestern bean salad is a remarkably versatile product. It’s perfect for use in wraps, tacos, burritos, or as a main dish by adding shredded chicken or beef. Use in a dip with tortilla chips or put some on a bed of lettuce topped with tomatoes to create a healthy, nutritious salad.

Today’s Menu: Cheddar Buffalo Burger w/ Baked Fries

 

Great Range Bison Burger 001

 

 

Back to a beautiful, sunny, Autumn Day, in the 20’s this morning starting out though. Not much going on today, most of my friends are in downtown Cincinnati for the Bengals late afternoon Football Game. For dinner it was a Cheddar Buffalo Burger w/ Baked Fries.

 

 

 
I used Great Range Ground Bison. I seasoned it with Sea Salt and Ground Black Pepper and pan fried it in Canola Oil, about 4 minutes per side. Came out medium rare with a nice char on the outside with a little pink and juicy in the middle! I made that switch to Buffalo, or Bison, quite a while back and have never missed Beef. I just love the taste of Buffalo over Beef and the way it cooks up. I served it on an Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bun and topped the Burger with a slice of Sargento Ultra Thin Sharp Cheddar. For a side I baked up some Ore Ida Simply Cracked Black Pepper and Sea Salt Country Style Fries. For dessert/snack later a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Jolly Time Pop Corn.

Today’s Menu: Whole Seasoned Roaster Chicken w/ Potato Pancakes, Cut Green Beans, and Baked Harvest Grain Bread

Perdue Oven Ready Whole Roaster 002

 
Beautiful but crisp and sunny Autumn Day, started out at 28 degrees this morning. Ran a couple of errands and went to Kroger for a couple of items. i needed some Sugarless Peach Preserves for a recipe that I had planned on having to night. I found the Peach Preserves, though not Sugarless will still work. But also while there they had some of the Perdue Oven Ready Whole Seasoned Roaster Chickens in stock and couldn’t pass up grabbing one. So dinner went from a Pork Tenderloin Roast to a Perdue Oven Ready Whole Seasoned Roaster Chicken. For dinner I prepared a Perdue Oven Ready Whole Seasoned Roaster Chicken w/ Potato Pancakes, Cut Green Beans, and Baked Harvest Grain Bread.

 

 

Perdue Oven Ready Whole Roaster 001
I had tried the Perdue Oven Ready Whole Seasoned Roaster Chicken once before, it’s tough finding these though. Kroger is the only one that I have found that carries them, and there’s only one Kroger at that has them from time to time. These are great, a real easy way to prepare a Whole Roasted Chicken. To prepare it preheat the oven to 400ºF. Cut open the outer bag and remove roaster, sealed in cooking bag. Place it in a shallow roasting pan, breast side up.Cut open outer bag and remove roaster, sealed in cooking bag. Place it in a shallow roasting pan, breast side up. Cut one small 1″ slit in cooking bag over the breast to vent during cooking. Place pan with roaster (still in cooking bag) on lower shelf of oven and roast for approximately 90-115 minutes, until internal temperature of the breast reaches 180ºF. Remove from oven and let stand for 10 minutes. Cut open cooking bag (use care to avoid hot steam and juices) and transfer roaster to serving plate or cutting board. Remove string from legs before carving. Remaining juices in bag can be used for a delicious seasoned gravy. The full instructions are at the end of the post. It can’t get much easier! Little mess to clean up and one mouth – watering delicious Roasted Chicken! Tender, moist, well seasoned, and browns up perfect. Huge Chicken (see the picture), plenty of great leftovers for lunch also!

 

 
For sides I heated up a can of Walmart Brand Cut Green Beans, a bit cheaper price wise than Del Monte and same taste. Also I had some of the Manischewitz Potato Pancake Mix leftover from the other night so I prepared some more of the Potato Pancakes. Then, while at Kroger this morning, I picked up a Petite Loaf of Kroger Private Selection Harvest Grain Bread that I baked. Another good choice meal for a cool Autumn Day! For dessert later a Healthy Choice Vanilla Bean Frozen Yogurt.

Today’s Menu: Chili and Cheese Nachos

 

Chili and Cheese Nachos 009
Brrrrrrrr! It didn’t get out of the 30’s today and perhaps even colder with the wind chill. Wind Chill, isn’t it a bit early to be talking Wind Chill! But then again we saw our first Snow Flurries, and it is way too early for that! For dinner tonight I wasn’t all that hungry and my parents weren’t either. So my Mom suggested some Chili and Chesse Nachos, excellent idea! So as always what Mom wants Mom gets, I prepared Chili and Cheese Nachos

 

 
I used Tostitos Multi Grain Scoops for my Chips. I love these with Salsa or just as snack by their selves, and they bake and hold their shape real good. For my toppings I used 1 can of Mario Sliced Black Olives. Before I go any further a bit about these Olives, anyone that uses small cans of Sliced Black Olives know what a pain they can be opening sometimes. Not these, they come in a can with a pull tab! About time. For my other toppings I used Mezzetta Deli Sliced Tamed Jalapeno Peppers, Hormel Turkey Chili with Beans, a few shakes of Frank’s Red Hot Sauce, and a blend of Sargento Reduced Fat 4 Cheese Italian Shredded Cheese and Sargento Reduced Fat Mozzarella. I hadn’t used the Hormel Turkey Chili with Beans in a while I had been using Campbell’s Firehouse Chili with Beans but I just wanted to switch it up.

 

 

Ready for the Cheese and the Oven

Ready for the Cheese and the Oven

To prepare I preheat the oven at 400 degrees and sprayed a glass baking dish with Pam and layer everything in. I start with a couple of tablespoons of Chili then I add my Scoops (Chips). I then add the Sliced Black Olives, the Chili, Sliced Jalapeno Peppers (Love These), and then top everything the Cheese Blend. Then just pop it in the oven 10 minutes or so until the Cheese had started to melt and everything heated. For the Chili I warm it up in a sauce pan, adding a few shakes of Frank’s Red Hot Sauce, before I top the Scoops with it. Nothing better than a big plate of Chili Cheese Nachos on a very cold day! Had an ice-cold Diet Dr. Pepper to drink also. For dessert later a Del Monte No Sugar Added Mango Chunk Cup.

Today’s Menu: Fried Yellow Lake Perch w/ Potato Pancakes and Sliced Carrots

 

 

Fried Yellow Lake Perch Pot Pancakes 006
Lot of rain early and then a cold and windy day, only a high of about 41 today. Ran some errands and filled the car up with gas before it went back up. I had some Yellow Lake Perch in the freezer, had purchased it from Meijer a couple of weeks ago. Laid in the fridge overnight to thaw. For dinner tonight, Fried Yellow Lake Perch w/ Potato Pancakes and Sliced Carrots.

 

 

I like using Lake Perch, fries up a beautiful golden brown and like most fresh water fish has a fantastic taste. After thawing I rinsed the fillets in water and patted dry. I then seasoned them with Sea Salt and rolled the fillets in Zatarain’s Crispy Southern Fish Fri. Pan fried them in Canola Oil, 3 minutes per side. They came out with a golden brown crust and delicious! My Mom says I get my love of Fish from my Great Grandfather. Mom said they always knew he was coming to visit because my Grandmother would always fry up a big batch of Fish and a cast iron skillet of Cornbread, and doesn’t get any better than that!

 

 

Fried Yellow Lake Perch Pot Pancakes 002
For a side dish I made some Potato Pancakes. I used Manischewitz Potato Pancake Mix, my favorite (Never made a cake I didn’t like!). Just add 2 Egg Beater’s (1/2 Cup), 2 1/4 Cups Water, to the mix stir and fry! Easy and makes one good Potato Pancake and their only 80 calories and 18 carbs per serving (3 Potato Pancakes). I also heated up a single serving can of Kroger Brand Sliced Carrots. For dessert tonight a Healthy Choice Chocolate Swirl Frozen Yogurt.

Today’s Menu: Grilled Cheddar Turkey Burger and Baked Fries

 

Grilled Turkey Burger 010
A perfect Autumn day out today! It’s in the low 60’s and sunny. Went to the store early and then yard work. I got the 4 wheel mobility scooter out and helped Mom rake the leaves, do some final trimming, and put away some of the Summer lounge chairs. Love getting out like that and doing work, thankfully I have that scooter that lets me get out like that and help out! For dinner I was able to fire up the grill up one last time, it will be retired after this use. For dinner, Grilled Cheddar Turkey Burger and Baked Fries.

 

 

 
I used Jennie – O Turkey Burger Patties (Lean). Only 180 calories and 9 g fat and already made into patties. I seasoned it with Sea Salt and Ground Black Pepper and grilled it about 17 minutes, flipping three times. I served the burger on an Aunt Millie’s Reduced Calorie Whole Grain Bun and topped with a slice of Sargento Reduced Fat Sharp Cheddar. Anything tastes better grilled, now I just have to get a better grill to do it on. I also baked some Ore Ida Simply Cracked Black Pepper and Sea Salt Country Style Fries. Served these with a side Daisy Reduced Fat Sour Cream. For dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Chocolate Pudding.
