So, without blowing 800 calories on delicious garbage from Taco Bell, I'd like to incorporate a fourth meal. There are a lot of suggestions on here for 100-calorie snacks, but I'm looking for 200-250 calorie meals, you know, that magical combination of carbs, protein and fat.

Lean Cuisines are too synthetic tasting and salads are too insubstantial. All I've got going at the moment is a chicken drumstick with a dollop of mashed potatoes and some boiled carrots. I make 4 days' worth at once because if it ain't convenient, I ain't doing it. I could use some help expanding my limited menu.

do you like to cook and bake?

Only if it doesn't involve too many ingredients and freezes well, because I'll make 10 portions in one go.

How about a big bowl of soup? Nachos= 1oz tortilla chips, 1/4 c salsa and 1 oz jack cheese in the micro. There are these flat breads called lavash that are lo in calories, do a wrap or a roll=up with roast beast and shredded veggies, and some salad dressing or spreadable cheese.

Not sure if it's convenient for you but a 6" turkey sub with veggies on wheat (no cheese) from Subway is only 350 calories. I'm full for a really long time after I eat one.

Protein shake with fruit in it.

Soup or chili could be prepped in mass and then frozen.

Cook and flavor lots of ground beef (or textured soy protein) and then add to a wrap for a burrito.

Bags of frozen veggies are my mainstay. No prep work, no spoilage, and you can add them to anything. Soup, stir-fry, pasta primavera, anything you want.

I bought the white fish on sale, 4 portions (whatever size you are having) 1 T olive oil, lots of spices(garlic pdr, oragano, salt, blk pepper, hot pepper, paprkia, cumin etc) and baked it slightly underdone, took out 1 portion ate it, stored the rest. You can micro. Yummy.

Here's a whole list from the calorie wiki...

Go to the food browser and click on "BFL 1400/day recipes". It's a whole list of recipes that target 240 calories, 20% carbs, 24% protein and 7% fat. I attempted to put the link below.

Turkey melt:
1 slice cheese - 80 cals (says the Sargento package)
deli turkey breast - 60 cals/serving (again, from the package)
1 slice whole wheat bread (about 100 cals)

put turkey on bread, cheese on turkey, and put in toaster oven. Add some mustard if you want the added flavor, or, my personal preference, a little tabasco.
