Nuts. I keep a supply of a different variety of nuts. It's the only food I actually measure out in a portion size though cause it's too easy to keep grabbing some.
Hummus and veges. I like TJ's hummus. In the summer, I use veges from the garden. Now that it's fall, it will be more like baby carrots and cherry tomatoes, maybe some occasional raw broccoli.
oatmeal: I often have oatmeal when I come home from work and realize I'm starving. I always add at least fruit to it. Some favorite combos are: add cocoa powder (not mix--the powder. There is no sugar in it), and a fruit like bananas or frozen blueberries or frozen raspberries. Another is add a serving of canned pumpkin, and some cinnamon (about 1/2-1 tsp), a bit of ginger, and a tiny bit of cloves (pumpkin pie spices). Add either banana or chopped apple or a bit of dried fruit like prunes, raisins, or cranberries. You have to watch the dried fruit though. I eat these combinations with no added sweetener but others may want to add some.
Seaweed: I love Trader Joe's seaweed. It's good when I want something crunchy and salty. YMMV!
Popcorn: I pop corn on the stove and add herbs and spices: tumeric, cumin, black pepper, curry, a bit of cinnamon, garlic, & onion for a curry flavor or chili powder, cumin, garlic powder, onion powder, and cayenne for mexican seasoning. The seasoning adds nutritional value and I like it.
Fresh fruit: whatever is seasonal
Yogurt with frozen fruit: Plain yogurt, no sweetener but then add frozen berries of some kind. Sometimes, I will top with Grape Nuts or Grape Nuts Flakes. It satisfies my ice cream urge!
I need high volume in my food intake and I like FLAVOR!
Breakfast: Same thing every morning: Once or twice a week, I make a frittata:heat frozen spinach in a saute pan and add sauteed onions (I do those in the microwave while the spinach is cooking, garlic, and tomato and sauteed mushrooms if I have some. When the veges are hot, I add eggs, already beaten well. I add two for each day I'm going to eat it. I put a lid on it and cook it on the low side of medium till it is puffy and cooked through. Putting the veges on the bottom makes clean-up much easier. Then I cut it in pieces (I usually make enough for 4 days) and put the extra in the fridge. It keeps well for 4-5 days. I eat it with mashed avocado on top. If I'm still hungry, I will make oatmeal or the yogurt with frozen berries.
I have some dinners, but no more time to type right now. Looking forward to getting some new ideas!
