Easy no recipe foods for DD?

Hi guys, today is my first DD and I was wondering if there's already a thread about easy DD choices? I don't mean recipes, like in the pinned thread, but something extremely simple that isn't diet shakes (can't stand them!) and that is fairly filling? This is what I've purchased so far...

plain oatmeal packets (100 cals each)
low-cal soups
chix/beef broth
lettuce w/vinegar
baby carrot packs (35 cals each)
frozen mango chunks (95 cals for 3/4 cup - I toss a few pieces in w/the oatmeal)
fresh strawberries (50 cals for 1 cup - also for the oatmeal)
fresh broccoli
smoked turkey (45 cals for 6 slices)

I want to deal with food as little as possible on my DD, so I want to avoid cooking as much as possible. Any other easy, filling suggestions? Thanks!

What I've been doing that has really helped is make a big batch of boneless skinless chicken breasts at the beginning of the week. I have a few great low cal prepared sauces I got at Whole Foods (Frontera peanut mole sauce and Cindy's Kitchen mango pepper coconut). I just weigh out my chicken, add a little sauce, and warm for 30-45 seconds. Delicious and super filling!

I'm all about easy and fast. I don't cook. Here are some of my standards.

A whole sliced cucumber with a small can of tuna is very filling and has a good mix of protein and bulk. A little ACV or low cal dressing on top and you're good to go.

Small Wendy's chili (210) or subway salad are quick and easy "out" choices.

FF greek yogurt--doesn't get easier than that!

Broth with serrano chiles is surprisingly filling and easy peasy.

Water with lemon.

Hot coffee or tea.

Lean Cuisines or similar.

Trader Joe's shrimp stir-fry (the whole bag is 175 calories).

Nice to have you join us!

I eat a lot of raw zucchini or yellow summer squash slices on both DD and UD (my garden is overflowing with squash)

Second the cucumber idea. I slice them and layer with a very thinly sliced onion (red onion, usually), sprinkle with some apple cider vinegar and cracked pepper then add some water to the container.

Special K has come out with some new "cracker chips" that are pretty good if you're wanting something salty and crunchy. 30 fairly good sized chips for 110 calories. I get a Laughing Cow wedge and dip them in that and am very satisfied.

SF sweet pickles (made w/ Splenda) are very satisfying when you want something sweet.

Petite kosher dill pickles are perfect for when you want something real salty.

SF popsicles

Thanks guys, I appreciate the suggestions! I hadn't thought of cukes or pickles, great suggestions! And I have never liked Tuna, but I think I'll pick up a can of the highest quality I can find and see if my tastes have changed. According to the JUDDD website, I should be keeping my DD cals at 330 for maximum weightloss, so I'm trying to keep my meals at around 100 calories. Last night I had a turkey sandwich - one rice cake, 3 slices of turkey, and mustard. Around 55 calories and it was great!

Don't forget about beef or chicken broth. A warm cup with an added splash of apple cider vinegar and a little hot sauce can stop the growelies.

Broth definitely gets me through the DD, then I can eat something more substantial when I get home from work.

I also like to add 1/2 can (50 cal) of drained chunk white tuna on top of mixed greens along with some celery, cucumbers (raw veggies of your choice). Maple Grove has a nice fat free / sugar free Raspberry dressing (2 T = 5 cal). Really dresses up the tuna. Also very filling.

My new fave is the Wholy Guac 100 packs. Talk about a nice salad topping. I really enjoy it and the fat makes it filling. I use lettuce, the guac, just a little cheese, salsa and 1 spoon of sour cream. 220c for me, I love it!

Kristin, thank you!

Do you guys have any brand suggestions for broth? I got some Swanson's beef broth and had a cup yesterday. I was able to drink it, but frankly, it was pretty icky. I'll try the chicken tomorrow to see if I like it better, but I'm willing to try other brands if you guys have found ones you love.

OH and my new fave is roasted cauliflower! I could eat this by the bucket. This has a little prep/cook time involved! Take a head of cauli , slice it as thin as you can (it will make a mess). Put aluminum foil on a cookie sheet and spray with Pam. Lay your cauli out nice and flat, even the tiny pieces that fell off. Spray with the no calories butter. Bake at 450* for 20 minutes. Have another cookie sheet ready with sprayed aluminum foil and flip it at the 20 minute mark, spray with the butter again and sprinkle with parm cheese and bake another 20 minutes! BEST STUFF EVER for little calories! DH and I fight over who gets to eat the most!

Flipping is key! It isn't good if you just roast 1 side!

I don't mind a little bit of cooking, especially for cauliflower! I'll pick up some butter spray and cauli the next time a head to the grocery. This sounds like something that would be great to snack on.

I like the Herb Ox bouillion packets - 5 calories each and portable. I keep prepared miracle rice (rinsed, dried then I like to stir fry it in a dry pan with some spices like ginger, garlic, and pepper to add some heat) in a tupperware container in the fridge and add a few spoons of that to the broth and it is very filling.

Quick and easy is my mantra! Here are my typical DD staples:

* Coffee w/cream
* LC Blueberry Cobbler (blueberries, cottage cheese, few raw oats, sweetener, couple squirts sf blueberry syrup if you have it)
* YoCheese Pudding (Greek yogurt (I strain Dannon), sweetener, low sugar jam or few sprinkles of sf dry jello mix, whipped cream)
* Carbquick OMM (equal amounts of Carbquick and SF DaVinci syrups)

The Chicken/Cabbage/Laughing Cow mix is a delish quick meal.

Another quick dish is canned chicken mixed with a can of tomato/okra/corn mix (can't think of what that mix is called right now!).

I get the Better Than Bouillon "paste". It's a bit expensive but has good ingredients; no sugar, corn syrup solids, etc. They also have organic versions. I like their chicken, vegetable, and mushroom bouillons; haven't tried the beef but I bet it's excellent!

Almost every DD this is what I do:
grate a zucchini into a small saucepan, cook with water & chicken BTB.
Have one or two bowls during the day (add splash of cream for something different).

Add chicken breast (canned, grilled, whatever) or shrimp for dinner.

Frozen salmon burgers for about 130 calories each, pretty good sized. Not bad grilled, and I'm not a fish lover at all.

shredded cabbage makes great make shift noodles in chicken soup, and adds lots of bulk for very low calories.

I'm very fond of the organic eggs I get from my next-door neighbor's chickens. I've been on a kick for a couple of week where I eat pretty-much the same thing every DD. It takes the thinking out of the equation.

I take one whole egg and add 1/4 cup egg sub and scramble together. Then I spritz it with no calorie butter spray and lay it on top of a chopped up Mozzarella cheese stick. 180 cals. Yummy! I eat it for lunch and dinner.

100 calorie bags of microwave popcorn. I eat one of these pretty much every down day.

The cabbage, laughing cow and chicken dish. Technically this is cooking, but it doesn't take much time so I don't think of it as cooking.

Kimberino posted a while back about cream of wheat. 120 calories for a pretty large serving. Since she posted that I've had it most every down day.

Jimmy Johns turkey tom unwich. Less than 100 calories with no mayo. Since I've moved up my calories for down days, I often have a turkey tom no mayo on bread because to me it's so much better on bread. That's about 320 calories.

Or I make a turkey sandwich at home. 45 calorie slices of bread, 3 ounces of thinly sliced turkey and a couple slices of tomato is something like 190 calories.

Hope this helps!
