    What kind of foods do you eat that are filling, that are lower in the calorie range, and NOT something I eat every freaking day? My rotation of foods is getting pretty repetitive.

    Pretty much any veggie, unadulterated is good. (Not corn.)
    Also, fruits are good. Frozen berries are awesome (blueberries anyway, larger berries are harder to enjoy frozen).
    Basically fresh-esh plants are generally good because they have a lot of water and fiber to fill you up with.
    I'm also a big lean pocket fan, though it doesn't compare on the fill:calorie ratio with the above.

    Oh, oatmeal is also great (again, unadulterated).

    Anything Paleo ('cept nuts which are high calorie - but to be honest they are probably the only thing keeping me in the positive, calorie-wise). Probably not if it comes wrapped in something that says "Paleo" though.

    Good recipe sites:

    Into steel cut oats at the moment usually with fruit and almonds. I'm having to remind myself to eat as i'm usually feeling pretty full until early afternoon.

    I always crave salty snacks. Instead of buying a bag of chips or something super bad I have managed to channel this craving into beef jerky. Its high in protein and low in fat (though high sodium). And its much tastier than chips as well.

    Cabbage salad with cilantro and shaved carrots drizzled with olive oil and lemon juice. You can add roasted butternut squash and/or grilled salmon if you'd like.
