4 Filling, Low-Calorie Foods

These nutrient-packed eats will help you stay full without tacking on fat and calories.

Cottage Cheese

Fat-Free Cottage Cheese

Each serving has nearly a third the protein of sirloin steak, none of the fat, and almost as much bone-building calcium as half a glass of milk. Plus, you can eat it plain or mixed with almost anything.

Fix It:
1) Combine a cup of cottage cheese with 1⁄2 cup of thick and chunky salsa; serve with toasted whole-wheat pita bread chips.

2) Stir 1⁄2 cup of cottage cheese into warm or cold pasta dishes, such as pasta salad or spaghetti with marinara sauce.

3) Skip cream cheese in favor of cottage cheese on whole-wheat English muffins.

4) For a lean dessert, blend 3⁄4 cup cottage cheese in food processor until smooth, then add 1⁄4 cup fat-free lemon yogurt. Stir in as many fresh, or frozen, thawed, sliced strawberries as you want.
