Stop Feeling Hungry by Adding These...

Nutrient-dense foods can reduce your feelings of cravings and hunger by helping you feel full and avoid overeating. Remember that portion size still matters here!

Beans, beans the magical fruit the more you eat the more you feel full... what that is not the rhyme! Beans are packed with protein coming in on average with 20g per serving. Add in the bonus that beans are low in calories AND inexpensive this is a win/win for getting in your protein. Consider: Roasted chickpeas or Black beans/mango salsa with tortilla

Seeds are the forgotten protein source but so useful and easy with an average seed containing 5g of protein per serving. Seeds can pack a punch in the calorie department so watch the serving size carefully. Consider: Chia Seeds sprinkles on your yogurt, Pumpkin Seeds, or Hemp Seeds sprinkled in your salad

Quinoa is one of the only complete sources of vegetarian proteins averaging 8g per serving. Consider making "oatmeal" from your quinoa adding in fresh fruits.

Salmon may not be the most budget-friendly protein source but packing a whopping 40g per serving along with omega 3s it may be worth it. Consider: Grilling Salmon or Smoked Salmon on avocado toast

Tempeh is made from fermented soybeans similar to tofu but it has much more protein per serving at 17g per serving. Tempah may not be the easiest protein to find but is generally found with tofu. Consider: A TLT (tempeh, lettuce, and tomato sandwich) or Tempeh Tacos!
