    i like corn as a low spoons snack. put desired amount in bowl or stovepan with butter and salt, heat on stove or in microwave until warm, eat.

    obvs just microwavin a soup works well, a thing i do to make a bit more of a meal out of a soup is i toast a slice or two of bread to dip in it, or if I have spoons for it, make grilled cheese. All you do for grilled cheese is butter one side of bread slice, put it on griddle, put cheese slice on non buttered half, butter another, put on top butter side up, put on low heat, flip after a few minutes, eat when it's browned on both sides, or when you're bored of waiting for it to brown

    since i dont have a microwave, i find if i start the grille chee, then start heating the soup, they finish close to the same time so it doesnt feel like too many extra spoons.

    Thank for so many response, pals. I ended up crashing and going to bed. Feeling up to egg toast. Dirty rice + veggies probably will be my best bet for the next few days. Thanks for trouble shooting with me!

    Any low spoons/ executive dysfunction tips for getting multiple/ The Recommended veggie servings in my daily food consumption? I like most veggies okay but...... prep time..... and because shit memory/executive dysfunction, if I buy anything other than a tiny amount of fresh veg, it's virtually guaranteed to go bad before I get around to eating all of it. Fruit's much easier but even then I can screw up :F

    for the record i Cannot eat any sort of dressing or condiment with veggies, without fail the taste/smell will completely repel me

    gonna die mad that Safeway isn't any longer stocking these little palm-sized packets of baby carrots in packs of four, those things were perfect to just peel off one and consume anytime

    frozen veggies! they can go into omelettes! they can be boiled or steamed or possibly even roasted! they can go into stirfry! and any that you don't cook right away go into the freezer and so don't go off

    Does hummus count as a condiment? Carrots last for ages in the fridge and cucumbers last a decent amount of time if theyre not already sliced, and both are delicious with hummus. Peanut butter and carrots is also good if peanut butter is Acceptable.

    Can you do steam-in-bag veggies? Another option is frozen fruit in smoothies.

    Agree with frozen veggies, even better if you can prep some into those steam bags which go straight in the microwave, those are super convenient for times when you Just Can't.

    My gym trainer wants me to eat more low-cal stuff at lunch because he says I'm not getting enough and it's leading to me filling up on junk later. I usually have a wholemeal bread roll with low-fat spread, big piece of cucumber, an apple, and about twice as much cheese as is recommended for daily intake. I cut out the cheese because it's high calorie and added a carrot, but apparently that's not helpful. Anyone got any recs?

    Would nuts work? Less fat than cheese and lots more protein than all that other stuff.

    I don't know. I don't like raw nuts at all.

    Beans in some form. High fiber, good source of protein, etc., etc.

    Generally, that lunch looks pretty protein deficient. You can get lean proteins fairly easily and protein can help you feel more full. Lean meats, nuts, beans, etc. Eggs are higher in fat but are generally considered a positive thing.

    If you like avocado, that's an excellent way to consume fats (fat is generally more satisfying than just carbs, so cutting out all fat is counterproductive). Replace the low fat spread with some soft cheese maybe? Some chicken as a lean protein source, and tomato and spices rather than the carrot.

    Hmm, are you vegetarian or just going for volume over calories? Maybe a bit of cereal like shredded wheat. Or would even more vegetable help? Maybe a bit of sliced turkey on your bread.

    I do eat meat but I don't really want to eat it more than once a day if I can avoid it because I feel bad for not being vegetarian. Volume over calories would help a lot. Maybe some lentils?

    Lentils would be good, I think, and you can make them flavorful in lots of different ways with different spice combos.

    Maybe I should go back to having cheese for now, just a smaller amount?

    Maybe I should try chia seeds again, those are supposed to have protein. Everyone here and my gym trainer are right, I skipped the cheese today and I'm hungry even though I ate a normal dinner.
