Dry cereal: Wheat Chex, Shredded Wheat, Cheerios, Oat Squares, granola. NOTE: Add raisins or other dried fruits to boost the calories and carbs.
Pretzels: Naturally fat free. Look for reduced salt or salt-free varieties if you are watching your salt intake.
Crackers: Stoned wheat, sesame, bran, RyKrisp, or other low fat or fat free brands NOTE: Spread with peanut butter or add slices of cheese to boost the calories and protein.
Bagels: The bigger the better. Look for whole wheat, pumpernickel, rye, or ones with seeds to get the most nutrients. NOTE: Spread with peanut butter, honey, jam, or low fat cream cheese to boost the calories.
Fruits: Bananas, apples, oranges, grapes, or other fresh fruits. NOTE: Dried fruits (like raisins, apricots, and dates) are especially easy to pack and very calorie dense.
Nuts and seeds: Peanuts, pistachios, almonds, sunflower seeds and other nuts/ seeds are high in calories and good sources of protein, healthy monounsaturated fats, vitamin E, and several other vitamins and minerals.
I was going to suggest nuts & seeds as well. I eat almonds every day just about now because I am really trying to get more of the healthy fats in my diet. They have a good amount of calories in them and fat, but all good fats so I say if you aren't hungry and aren't getting enough calories then add some of those.
well i automatically get my meals from ediets... i don't wanna add nuts (i love love love almonds) today cause that would put me in too high on the fat grams for the day. I actually ended up working it out. I eat tons of fruit (i am goin to buy more today). I just needed something different for days i can't make it to 1800 calories or close to it. THe protein shake helped...
