DD Mini Meal idea thread

I was thinking this, then JBinME said it, so I figure, let's do it:

concept: some people find having multiple mini meals (or Barbie meals ) throughout a DD can help stave off the hunger and make the day easier.

Some people eat each hour, or every 2hrs.

So let's post some thoughts for mini meals-- 20, 30, 40, 50 calorie tidbits that you can have through the day to stave off the hunger monster!

Ok-- go!

Great idea. I'm interested to see what you all come up with. I'd like to try it, but I'm too lazy to do the research on my own.

Ditto.

Here's what I did yesterday, but I think I need to do less food, more often. Still, this might work for some:

2 hb eggs, 1T lite mayo, all mashed (140+40=180)
3 kavli super thin crackers (50)
take the above, divide into 4 or 6 mini meals

1 cup almond milk (add davinci, 0) 40cal

1 bag of slaw or broccoli slaw = 100 or so (stir fry, good for or 3 good sized meals)

low fat sausage-- 100 or 125... mix with the above, divide up. I don't count cals in some lite soya sauce or sriacha

cheese wedge - 23 (light laughing cow)
magic pop - 15

ok, that's it for me for now. I think Pat and Ouiz have some great ideas too!

I divided a wee can of tuna (80) and a sliced zucchini (45) into three meals.
Stir fried slaw twice. (50 each)
BP coffee w one tsp butter only (33)
Went nuts and had a 75 cal egg at the end of the day.
So, seven Barbie meals, 333 cals. Pretty satisfying.

Baked acorn squash divided into mini meals is sooo filling! I didn't even want to eat anything after I had 3 portions of 50 cal last DD.

Woweee, lot's of great ideas - thank you! Gonna pick up some PB2, probably chocolate - didn't realize the calorie count was so low on that product.

Here are a few things I've been eating for mini-meals lately:

Boiled egg, white only: 17-25 calories depending on your egg
Romaine heart lettuce, small inside of head 132 grams, dipped in favorite Walden Farms dressing: 22 calories
Scandinavian Bran Crispbread, spread with Walden Farms fruit spread (groovin' on apricot currently) 12 calories
Beef broth 1 cup with cabbage 40gm: 26 calories
Gelatin Gummy candies made with 1 Tablespoon gelatin, stevia and koolaide mix, etc.: 35 calories I can spread these over a couple of hours or longer.

I saw this list before and it seems pretty useful (although most of these are just vegetables, and who would eat 50 radishes since they are 1 calorie each)

I do. Here is what I take to the office (some prep in advance)

--V8 35 very filling calories
--1 tsp coconut oil dissolved in hot coffee: 37 ( i do this a few different hours)
--one bag miracle rice/laughing cow wedge, s&p (prepped in the morning) nuked at the office
I have bags of salmon and brancrisps and laughing cow at the office and make open faced sandwiches
pre-prep: a baggie of turkey and a baggie of pickles: mix and eat
one packet LF cocoa plus 1 tsp coconut oil--57 cals
2 cut up red peppers: 40 calories
35 calories worth of carrots

you get the idea. I think it thru in advance. Sometimes I take a hard boiled egg which gets me thru at least 2 hours.

Kim's magic pops or Kim's deli pops. You can google them. I order them since I don't see them in stores around here. I really like them!

I haven't tried these. I guess the first description I read said they're like rice cakes, which I hated, so I didn't give them a second thought. Now I'm seeing lots of you using them, and I'm curious.

I see there are quite a few flavors. Which ones do you guys recommend, and what toppings do you like? Also, do you order them in big batches? That's all I can find, either on their site, or on amazon. Thanks!

I read the article- good ideas, but I found that the calories they suggested were somewhat low balling it. What did other people think? If these calories are accurate I can eat more on DDs then I have been for the same 200 calories I thought I was eating!

LCG that is the same way I feel about Magic Pops and always wonder if they are like rice cakes if so.....I shall pass! Can't find them around here and the assortment on Amazon has strawberry flavored and though I love strawberries I am not a fan of the flavor. So can anyone enlighten us please.

I hate rice cakes but Stew Leonard's rice cakes (NY NJ CT) I love and those pops might be like them. They are "popped" and have a really good flavor-not like packing material. 15 cals each.

The Deli pops are like rice cakes, but in my opinion, better. The magic pops are like crispy discs- pretty big for 15 calories. I have tried 5 or 6 flavors- they are all pretty good. I put laughing cow light and turkey pepperoni on the plain or onion ones. The cinnamon ones I sometimes put PB2 on or walden farms 0 calorie spreads. The strawberry ones are even alright in a strange kinda way.

I plugged about half of them into my counter and came up a little higher. Still, since they are mostly veggies, how wrong can you go?

I don't know... a calorie is a calorie. I try to be super accurate with DDs 'cause I don't count at all on UDs anymore, but if I'm cheating myself I want to know
