It sounds like you've realized that your body WANTS to eat because it feels like shit, but eating won't actually help. That's the first mental hurdle. Now you've just got to switch out your go-to foods for healthier versions so that when you do give into the binge (because that happens) it won't be so bad. I lost 35 pounds by just filling up on protein and vegetables FIRST.

I have a small history with eating disorders, mainly in the fact that if I count calories, things get out of control. So I don't count anything. I also don't let myself get too hungry - I'll eat 4-5 big snacks throughout the day, no real 'sit down' meals.

I also make sure I'm drinking enough water - I bought a few of these Contigo water bottles in the 32oz size, and I try to make sure I drink one bottle each day minimum.

I love to cook, but if I cook, I can't do anything else that day, so I eat a lot of packaged food and snacks, or fresh things that just need to be washed. I also eat things with a lot of flavor and spice -- bland food makes me mentally feel like I didn't eat anything, or that I'm depriving myself.

For protein I eat a lot of EPIC meat bars and canned tuna. Instead of eggs (because shells and sinks are unnecessary steps), I make a mountain of egg whites from the carton with sharp cheddar sprinkled/melted in, then LOTS of hot sauce. Sliced deli meats are great things to have on hand -- my deli has Lebanon bologna and lemon-pepper turkey, so I get those instead of the plain stuff.

For veggies, my favorite low-effort thing is IKEA veggie meatballs. But if you don't live near an IKEA, there might be another veggie meatball option at your store. I used to hate salads, then realized I just hated iceberg and romaine lettuce. So now I eat spinach salads (with carrots and olives and roasted red peppers from the jar and sometimes cucumbers). I don't use salad dressing -- just olive oil, balsamic vinegar, and garlic salt. I'll eat green bell peppers raw, like an apple. I eat a lot of apples, too. Honeycrisp are the best.

For good carbs/starches I make beans. Just dump 'em in a bowl in the microwave. Black beans with salsa is probably the healthiest option, but I also liked mixing Great Northern beans with canned sweet peas. Any bean with butter and some kind of hot sauce or salsa is gonna taste ok and be kind of healthy. (Not refried beans, though. Save that for a treat and/or really bad day. Load it up with cheese and salsa.)

To replace chips for salt cravings, I get these salt-and-vinegar almonds. They have lactose, for whatever reason, but other than a bit of bloating the first time I had them, they haven't really bothered my lactose intolerance. And they will low-key tear up your tongue in the BEST way (if you're into that).

I don't really have a sweet tooth, but the KIND bars come in all sorts of flavors and make great snacks. For a cold treat I get the Smooze fruit ices -- they've only got 10 grams of sugar.

I also really like the Thai Kitchen Instant Noodles. They're small servings, so sometimes I'd make two for a meal. Read the packages carefully if you have allergies, though --- the Lemongrass one has shellfish byproducts, which was a very scary and upsetting surprise for me.

Another important thing is just not to have the 'bad foods' (you know the ones) in the house. My dad left a bag of regular cheddar Goldfish here yesterday, and I ate the entire damn thing, despite my gluten and lactose intolerances. So I've been miserable all night. But today I will drink my water and eat my eggs and get back on track.

u/jevausie · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

Have you looked into Soylent? (Not a joke, despite the name.) It's the first 100% complete food replacement. My friend drinks this as a supplement to smaller meals to get all her required nutrition, but you can also just drink this exclusively and not eat. Crazy, right?! In smaller amounts it adds a healthy dose of all the vitamins & minerals you need to a health shake.

Spirulina powder is also really excellent for you and contains a lot of protein.

Chia seeds are so good for you and add a pleasant texture to smoothies & such!

Kale - fresh or powdered is so good for you and honestly does NOT add a nasty veggie taste to otherwise sweet drinks! Same with carrots. It can be especially good with blueberries or blackberries, and carrots are good with strawberries and apples.

Hope this helps!

u/bethbr00tality · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

Ooh! I love this game!

PB2 is my jam! I like the chocolate version, but there is a plain peanut butter version too. I love adding it to protein powders that are a little bland.

PB2 different kinds variety pack happy fun time!

I buy my chia seeds in bulk.

Hemp hearts are a great source of complete protein.

This chia, flax cocoa mix is really good with chocolate protein powder.. and chocolate pb2... and on yogurt... etc. Love this stuff. Cheaper in bulk. They used to make a berry version too but I can't find it.

This is the kind of supergreens I use, but there are a variety of flavors so I linked you to the search. I just do the original to keep it neutral.

u/coldize · 2 pointsr/loseit

> Firstly, what are okay things to eat for breakfast that provide you with enough energy for the day while still being healthy?

I can make a few recommendations that have worked for me in the past:

  • I used to prepare steel cut oats overnight in a crockpot (with a timer). Honestly I never really enjoyed oatmeal but I liked how healthy it was and the energy it gave me. You can also put in whatever you want to mix things up. My go-to toppings were a handful of walnuts, blueberries, and a tablespoon of this cocoa/coconut flax seed stuff. I used to also put in a packet of splenda but decided to try to back off making it too sweet and instead just put in more blueberries if I needed it.

  • There's a ton of great recipes for this so this one I'm linking is just an example but you can prepare these delicious egg fritata muffin things and keep them in the freezer and heat them up in the morning in the microwave. They're low calorie, the protein in eggs is really good at filling you up, and you can put in a ton of healthy veggies too. Also pretty low calorie.
  • Similar to the oatmeal, just get some plain greek yogurt and put some stuff in it. I did the same toppings as my oatmeal but added a little bit of honey (since I got unflavored greek yogurt which is kind of gross by itself).
  • And my final recommendation is nothing at all! I've been skipping breakfast since the beginning of 2016 and it's been the best change to my diet I could have made. I found that if I ate a small breakfast, I just felt hungry and unsatisfied until lunch, but if I ate a big breakfast, I had a lot of trouble not eating too much the rest of the day. So now, I skip breakfast and opt for a cup of black coffee instead. It helps curb any hunger I have until I eat lunch and then I can eat a large meal for lunch and dinner and also sneak in some snacks. This strategy is called Intermittent Fasting which you can learn a little more about here. I honestly don't follow it strictly but it works really well for me.

    Hope this helps!
u/44u_GlennCoco · 5 pointsr/xxketo

I'm actually doing keto as a vegan, so I might be able to help you out some!

  • For butter, I really like either Miyoko's Cultured Butter (you can find it at Trader Joe's if you live on the West Coast) or Earth Balance, which is more readily available at major supermarket chains. I'll also use avocado or olive oil for cooking.

  • For milk, I use either Tempt Hemp Milk or, if I want a little extra protein boost, Ripple, which is made with pea protein. I buy the unsweetened original variety for both; Tempt has 1g net carb per 8 oz, Ripple has 0g net. I find the Tempt at markets like Whole Foods -- I buy my Ripple at Target.

  • I use dairy-free cheeses very sparingly because they are higher in carbs than I'd like, but I've found that Chao (available at WF/some major supermarkets) is kinda the best bet.

  • I eat mayo with most of my meals, usually either Vegenaise (I like the Pesto and Chipotle flavors) or Just Mayo. Vegenaise is another WF kinda find, but Just Mayo is really widely available (even Walmart sells it!). There's also dressings available from the same company that makes Just Mayo -- the Ranch and Caesar are both really tasty.

  • Shelled hemp seeds are fantastic, too -- one 3 tbsp serving has 170 cal - 13g fat - 0g net carbs - 10g protein. I usually mix them in with whatever I'm eating since they have a pretty neutral flavor.

    Let me know if there are any dairy replacements that you're really interested in and I can probably point you in a good direction!
u/lermp · 1 pointr/keto

Look into KIND bars if you have them available. A few of them are Keto friendly and have the benefit of having little in the way of process crap in them.

I love making chia seed pudding the night before. It's super quick and easy. They have a nice mild nutty flavor to them. All you need are storage containers, a measuring cup, and a measuring spoon. Oh and your ingredients of course. You can also make them in mass a few nights before.

The base ingredients are 3 tbsp of chia seeds and 1/2 a cup of unsweetened almond milk. You can substitute a different low carb milk alternative or even a protein shake. I use this Costco shake when I want a more protein heavy meal. You can use protein powders if you'd like. And that's just for the base. You can add nuts, a couple berries, stevia, peanut butter, cocoa powder, etc. There are tons of recipes online on how to augment it.

Macro's for the Chia and Almond Milk base mentioned above:

Cal: 175
Fat: 11.2g
Carb: 2g net (14.2 carb - 12.2 fiber)
Prot: 5.5g

Macro's for just 3 tbsp chia seeds:

Fat: 10g
Carb 2g net (14 carb - 12 fiber)
Prot: 5g

You can add more liquid if you want as well, or less chia seeds. Chia seeds can absorb 9 times their weight in liquid. You can do 3 tbsp to 1 cup or more if you want. It all depends on what consistency you like. Also the longer they soak the more jelly like they turn.

And it's pretty cheap in my mind. This 2 lbs bag is only $10 on amazon. If you use 3 tbsp per meal, that's about 25 meals worth of seed. Or $0.40 per meal. You'll have to add the cost of the liquid to it as well. But there's nothing stopping you from adding water to them instead.

u/curbstickle · 30 pointsr/bicycling

... you don't buy them in boxes?

Also, I started making my own. Awesome, easy to do. If you're interested, I can send you some recipes I came across and have been using (and modifying).

Edit: Wow! Went away for a few minutes.... tons of replies.

Ok give me just a few to grab them

Edit 2: You can grab the few I use the most here. As you can see, I like peanut butter and chocolate. A few things to do to make things even healthier...

Add in chia seeds - awesome stuff.

Swap out maple syrup for agave syrup. I tend to use the dark agave.

Use agave instead of butter for binding the all oat recipes. Butter binds okay, but agave works great. Comes out super chewy.

Use parchment paper - this is not the same as wax paper!! Parchment paper can be used in the oven at higher temperatures, something wax paper isn't good for. You'll melt the wax. When you're done, you can use the parchment paper to twist and wrap up the bars for sticking in your jersey.

When it comes to the protein powder additions, use whey protein isolate or whey protein hydroisolate. Its more expensive, but substantially more effective. Isolate has less fats, less lactose, and is absorbed easier. Hydroisolate takes things a step further, reducing the amount of digestion that needs to be done. Since you're making a batch, WPI and WPH will last a long while this way. They also usually taste like shit, but since you're making delicious fudge brownies (in healthy form) and oat bars, it works out.

If anyone has anything else to add, please do so!

u/toramimi · 11 pointsr/PlantBasedDiet

Sauces, does salsa count?

Two months ago I stumbled into /r/SalsaSnobs and it was so fun and tasty that I've made it a weekly cooking adventure! Tonight I finished off an entire mason jar of homemade pineapple pear salsa, no salt no sugar just veggies and fruit and deliciousness! I've done different varieties, mango habanero is probably the best overall and most popular with the people I've shared with, but peach pear was pretty fucking great as well!

In my experimenting I also started taking unsalted roasted peanuts and cooking with garlic and chili de arbol, then blending up with white vinegar to make a thick pouring, idek, mole? Something. It's got fucking bite!

I also make guacamole at least once a week or so, just pico from tomatoes onions and jalapenos chopped up, avocado blended smooth with the juice from one lime and cumin garlic powder and paprika, then the pico folded into the blended avocado.

Hummus is great and filling as all fuck, but I try not to make it too often - less than once a month, it's a special treat. I use tahini made from just straight sesame seeds and canned chickpeas, with cumin and garlic and lemon juice, but it's so full of (healthy) fats and I'll end up eating everything I make, so have to limit myself!

u/QuarkTheFerengi · 1 pointr/LifeProTips

I do eat pork rinds a lot actually, they are great because they are low in calories. My other goto snack are almonds, high in fat. Also high in calories so make sure to weigh them out. I eat 2oz of almonds every day, as part of my lunch.

My favorite are blue diamond habanero bbq(not spicy despite the name), dont buy them online though..check your local store first. They are about half the price at my grocery store compared to online.

Another thing I will use as a snack are Quest Protein Bars or Costcos protein bars The costco ones are a lot cheaper but less choices. Both are keto friendly with ~5g net carbs per bar. Eating one of these with a nice big glass of water will usually keep me full for a bit.

Other than that cheeses and meats are good snacks if you like that kind of stuff.

Getting started can be hard but after a couple months everything becomes second nature. My first month was a bit rocky but I just kept reading up on /r/keto and got an idea of things to try out. Good luck!

u/G0ATLY · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon


Do you like coconut? I recently bought a 4 pack of shredded UNSWEETENED coconut from amazon!~ It is amazing. There is totally no need for sweetened coconut, and all the stores around here were strictly sweetened.. UGH! You can eat it in a lot of things! I eat it mixed with natural peanut butter for a treat//fat bomb on keto. SO GOOD!

I know some do not like coconut, soo I will also suggest chia seeds. They are filling and FULL of fiber! You can add them to smoothies, drinks, liquids and they swell up and make a gooey consistency like tapioca.. Though some don't like that you can grind them up and they feel more pudding-like. (With a coffee grinder, or mortar/pestle.) I use them for chocolate pudding. Unsweetened cocoa, sugar substitute and unsweetened almond milk with some sugar substitute. It's great for a treat after a night of the seeds swelling up.


Can you please surprise me? Thank you for the contest and good luck at the job!

/u/call_mecthulhu is totally all that!~!

u/austincedwardsdesign · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

Matcha powder is good for an energy boost for sure! Tastes pretty yummy too if you like green tea.

Also check out Chia seeds for a protein and texture boost. These are actually the exact ones I use.

u/adraffy · 8 pointsr/Fitness
  • 16 oz Mason Jar with Plastic Lid
  • Steel Cut Oats (7 oz)
  • 1 tbsp (2 rounded normal spoons) of Chia Seeds
  • Add Almond Milk to ~9 oz (more than 2 oz)
  • Mix
  • Blueberries (12+)
  • Raspberries (6+)
  • PB2 (2 tbsp)
  • Fill to rim with Greek Yogurt
  • Shake the shit out of it

    Warning: this is pretty calorie dense (~1K kcal, the oats alone are 600 kcal) but you can easily adjust it. First, remove the PB2 (45 kcal.) Then reduce the oats slightly or substitute a yogurt with less sugar, but I'd recommend just scaling everything because this mix tastes amazing and has perfect mouth feel.

    Edit: added a pic,
u/telepathetic_monkey · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon
  1. The most amazing bed!. No explanation needed.

  2. The perfect snack. It'll full your belly up and it's a light snack compared to sweet and savory stuff.

  3. Cupcakes!

  4. Elephant night light.

  5. For my son, a box fan helps him stay asleep. If it's turned off in the night, guaranteed he'll wake up 5 or 6 times, with it on, he usually wakes up once, if that!


    She used to say she could taste sleep and that it was as delicious as a BLT on fresh French bread.
u/one_dimensional · 3 pointsr/vegetarianketo

I don't know how popular the flavor 'salt and vinegar' is around here, but I'm wild about it, and have been in love with these Blue Diamond 'Bold' flavors.

Sooo satisfying and tasty!!

u/Smith7929 · 1 pointr/food

Well, it totally depends on why you're replacing whey and what your protein requirements are. Whey has a lot more protein than hemp, pound for pound, but that's because hemp also has tons of good fats in it (with omega 3/6/9). This one is good if you're feeling adventurous again. However, it's not powder, so you'll have to blend it. But this is just the pure stuff, no fillers, no flavoring etc. Add this with some frozen fruit and chia seeds/flax seeds in a blender and you got yourself a delicious smoothie.

u/DrunnkenGrackle · 5 pointsr/spicy

An awesome chili peanut snack is these "Magic Chili and Peanuts". It's got huge rounds of dry-fried crispy chili nuggets. They're not especially spicy, but the texture and taste are awesome. Only $5 or $6/bag at 99 Ranch 99.

u/strawberryfox3 · 2 pointsr/BabyBumps

Yay!! I'm glad someone is making it! I want all you pregnant mamas to feel the consistent relief that I've felt! One less thing to worry about! 😅 If you like it, I recommend buying a giant bag of chia seeds on Amazon. I bought this one for $24 and shared some with my mom: Healthworks Chia Seeds Raw Pesticide-Free, 6lb

I'm on my second bag now - the first one took me a couple if years to go through but I wasn't using it like I am now and it doesn't go bad 😀

u/[deleted] · 1 pointr/keto

They have them on Amazon, but the carbs listed are different. Looks like the same thing, though:

If you have a Discover card - free one-day shipping all month!

u/toplessbooks · 3 pointsr/vegetarianketo

Following the recipe above, without any toppings, each serving costs me about $1.45 - which for a lunch I do not think is bad at all. With two tablespoons of Peanut Butter as a topping, which is what I have been doing, it ups the cost to about $1.75 a meal. - but yes 75% of that cost is the hemp seeds


  • $0.10 in coconut milk (for 1/3 a cup of coconut milk)
  • $1.12 in hemp hearts (1/4 a cup of hemp hearts)
  • $0.04 in chia seeds (1/2 tablespoon of chia seeds)
  • $0.06 in Swerve (1 teaspoon of swerve)
  • $0.07 in Vanilla (1/4 teaspoon of vanilla)


  • $0.29 in peanut butter (two tablespoons)


    updated to include specific measurements I use for each serving as opposed to the whole recipe which is how I determined the cost.
u/k032 · 2 pointsr/askgaybros

Yeah up your fiber intake.

I make these like fruit and kale smoothies and add a bunch of chia seeds in it for breakfast. It's worked better for me than fiber pills.

It's worked way better for me than the fiber get other things from fruits/veggies...and sometimes fills me up so I don't need lunch/lose weight.

u/BongyBong · 1 pointr/vegan

I agree. Amazon is the best so far. I buy these Kirkland Cashews.

Btw, if you need a recipe to try out, make this Vegan mozzarella spinach and artichoke dip. So. Freaking. Delicious.

u/scubsurf · 1 pointr/Fitness

Eat more fiber.

Here's what I do. Buy a bunch of chia, and a bunch of oatmeal. Chia is your best friend now.

Mix that shit in with your oatmeal, and add protein to your oatmeal. The texture is shit, but it does the job.

Every time you have a protein shake, add a few spoonfuls of chia to it. Shit will fall out your asshole when you sit down on the can like change falling out your pocket in the car, you'll be amazed.

This is what I use. It's good stuff, and you'll be amazed at your poops, just don't eat too much or you'll tear your asshole.

u/KettlebellBabe · 1 pointr/xxketo

Kraut juice would totally be good for electrolytes, it's basically all salt water with minerals. I'm thinking I might try making a batch myself, it doesn't look tough at all.

Yes hemp hearts! They are no net carb, high protein and this delish nutty flavor. I dump 3Tsp (a serving) on my salads. Just as good or better then nuts. Or sometimes just a little handful on my way out the door.

(Yep, I'm good on Vit D. My doc tests it for fertility reasons and I've supplemented for years. It does make a difference for sure)

u/ttctoss · 7 pointsr/EatCheapAndHealthy

Chia seeds can be pretty cheap through Amazon. I like this one for $6-7 - 2lb lasts me about a month of eating it as pudding for breakfast every morning.

Mix 3tbsp with a cup of milk (or milk substitute of your choice). Stir again after it's set up for a few minutes. I like mine with cinnamon, raisins, and a little vanilla extract.

u/MattBooker · 4 pointsr/vegan

According to you (19F 112lbs) need to eat at least 1498 calories a day just to maintain your weight when resting. So if you're wanting to gain weight, you need to eat at least that amount.

For reference, a cup of dry quinoa becomes two cups when cooked, and is 626 calories.

Cook it in some veggie stock with seasoning, and once it's done add black beans, lentils, maybe a can of diced tomatoes, and whatever veggies you want. You can easily get 1000 calories from just that one meal.

Oh! Another high calorie whole food is tahini, which is just ground up sesame seeds and is used to make things like hummus or a bunch of wfpb sauces. It's also about 90 calories per tablespoon.

u/Smooth_Move · 5 pointsr/keto

This was mentioned in another keto post: Cocoa Almonds. Awesome

My local market carries Atkins Advantage Bars link to some examples. They come in many flavors. They're a bit pricey, but I have a sweet tooth so I indulge myself sometimes.

u/jakewill · 1 pointr/keto

I would like to chime in that the Emerald Dark Chocolate almonds are also GREAT and only have 1g sugar instead of 4g sugar in Blue Diamond's.

Emerald's do cost about 2x's as much as these ($.50/oz instead of $.25/oz). Amazon Emerald Dark Chocolate Roasted Almonds

u/round2keto · 1 pointr/keto

Found them on amazon!

I got them from a local store earlier today and they have been among the most delicious things I've eaten recently. These will satisfy my occasional chocolate cravings

u/samwich41 · 1 pointr/veganketo

Yeah I just read about it. I think it’s great and the calorie to dollar ratio isn’t that bad.

If you buy this hemp seed heart on amazon
Manitoba Harvest Hemp Hearts Raw Shelled Hemp Seeds, Natural, 1 Pound

Then you’re only really paying about a dollar for 270 calories.

If you buy a 18oz bottle of olive oil for $7, then for every dollar you get around 550 calories (110calories/tbsp).

So in other words it’s twice as expensive as olive oil, but you get a bunch of protein too.

u/iconoclashism · 2 pointsr/keto

They're similar but I've read chia seeds are a bit better. These are the ones I like. Hopefully they help.

u/sbslater · 3 pointsr/Fitness

Try Chia Seeds in a glass of water. They are super filling, I have heard that they are really good for you, and they are less than 50 calories.

Mix the Chia seeds in water and let sit for 15 minutes. They turn into a thick gelatinous drink that should quiet the stomach grumbles for a while.

Here's a good deal on Amazon. Hummus is awesome.

u/wildyogini · 1 pointr/Futurology

Store almond milk is often a lot of just fillers.
you use more almonds in home milk per cup, so I can see why it might seem that way. It also depends on if you are buy organic almonds and if you are buying them in bulk.
The price of [these](Kirkland Signature Supreme Whole Almonds, 3 Pound from amazon would come to around $1.63 per 4 cups almond milk, so cheaper than store almond milk, with more nutritional bang for your buck.
Honestly, I don't know how much cows milk is though... It has been a really long time since I have bought it and i know they subsidize it, so I am not surprised if you get double that for the same price.

u/aelinhiril · 2 pointsr/vegan

Dry goods seem like they'd go a long way. What does your access to beans, nuts, and oats/other grains look like? What does your spice selection look like either near you or in Edmonton?

I also use Hemp:

I also eat a lot of nuts and seeds. Hemp seeds are amazing. They make smoothies extra creamy.

u/OrangeJuliusPage · 3 pointsr/fatpeoplestories

Gonna throw in a plug for almonds here. Particularly the Emerald Cocoa Roast variety. Filling, tasty, few net carbs, and a super food.

Also, try the Greek people method for broccoli and cauliflower. Extra virgin olive oil, squeeze of lemon juice, and a pinch of salt. For me, I also add some cinnamon, cumin, and Mrs. Dash, for the thermogenic boost.

u/notthecoyote · 1 pointr/keto

Careful when you're eating that flavor, they have a few more carbs per serving. For chocolate almonds I like these, they're pretty tasty!

u/Kahne_Fan · 1 pointr/loseit

A couple of things that (might) help. Daily I take a "live" probiotic which I really like. I tell my kids they are "body bugs" that live in our guts and help us digest stuff. Here is the one I take.. And, one thing that made me flow like a faucet was adding Chia seed to my morning shakes. My buddy warned me to start slow - did I listen... nope... did I feel the effects, you bet! This is the Chia that I use. When I blend it into my morning shake using a NutriBullet blender and I can't taste them at all. However, when I only use my shaker bottle to make my shake, you can definitely detect the texture - I'm OK with it, but others can't stand bits in their drink.

u/dreadpiratemumbles · 1 pointr/EatCheapAndHealthy

Here's what I do:

  • 1 can chickpeas, drained and rinsed

  • 2-3 Tbsp chopped garlic

  • 1-2 Tbsp Tahini (bought off of Amazon, can sub peanut butter [or regular sesame seeds, but you should use a high powered blender to bake sure the bits get broken up])

  • 1-2 Tbsp lemon juice

  • Pinch of salt

  • Water to help it blend (usually people use olive oil, but this makes it lighter/cheaper)

    I usually add everything to a little bullet blender (starting with the smaller amounts). Then, I add water in small amounts and blend until the hummus is well blended. Finally, I taste it, and adjust the garlic/tahini/lemon juice/salt until it tastes how I like it. It costs a little more than $1 to make this recipe, and it yields nearly 2 cups of hummus, so it's definitely cheap!

    If you're worried about the cost of tahini, I got 32 oz for $10.50 off of Amazon, this one, which is about 31 cents per ounce (2 tablespoons). I keep mine in the fridge.

I've been making my own Hummus for about a year and a half now, and I've been pretty pleased with it, it has far less oil too. I buy the ingredients online, I could get canned chickpeas locally, but couldn't get Tahini. Canned chickpeas are about 99c a can in most grocery stores if you go that route.

5lb of Organic Chickpeas $14.95 - - a whole hell of a lot of chickpeas. It lasts me ~2 months making a batch a week.

2 16 OZ jars of Tahini $10.49 which is enough for 5-6 batches of Hummus.

  • 2 cups dry chickpeas (or 2 16oz cans canned).
  • 1/2 cup to 1 cup tahini depending on taste.
  • 1/2 cup to 1 cup lemon juice
  • 1 tsp baking soda to add to water while cooking chickpeas
  • 1 tsp salt, more to taste
  • 2 cloves garlic or 1tbs prepared garlic
  • Pepper, Cumin, Parsley, to taste.

    I cook 2 cups dry chickpeas, which will fill up a 5 cup food storage container no problem, which is a LOT of hummus.

    Chickpeas are beans, so they need to soak. Soak them in water overnight, then drain, put in a pot of fresh water, add a tsp of baking soda and simmer for ~2 hours. You want to cook them until the skins are dissolved and they're really soft, which is the key to smooth hummus. Once they're done, drain them.

    Mix about 1/2 cup Tahini with 1/2 cup lemon juice (2 lemons give or take if you use fresh) and 2 cloves garlic (or about a tablespooon of chopped garlic) and put in a blender or food processor and blend for a bit. Add salt and pepper, and optionally you can add parsley and cumin and/or greek seasoning. Add the cooked and drained chickpeas and blend until smooth. Add a bit more lemon juice or water if it's too thick for you.

    More Tahini will give the hummus a deeper and richer flavor, but nutritionally Tahini is a bit like peanut butter, so the more Tahini the more calories/fat it's going to have. It's still reasonably healthy, just higher in calorie.

    Tastier than store bought Hummus and generally healthier because most store bought hummus uses some form of vegetable oil and sesame flavoring rather than actual tahini, so it has more fat in it.

It might be kind of fun to start shipping hemp products to our lawmakers. As an example, Costco has sold this product in the Treasure Valley for nearly three years:

I have better luck soaking them overnight, then boiling them for an hour or so, less in a pressure cooker.

Make sure you reserve some of the liquid from boiling, and add small amounts if the hummus seems too thick.

Additionally, do not forget the tahini. You may be able to find it locally cheaper, and I have heard some people have substituted peanut butter. I've never tried peanut butter, but I have made hummus without the tahini and it just doesn't taste right.

No no no! Don't give up! Emerald Cocoa Roast Almonds have saved me in the same situation. Only 3 net carbs PLUS you get a kick of protein and fiber to boot. You can get them from the grocery store as well, this was just the easy link. :D Keto on girl, you can do it!

Edited for spelling

Exceedingly good calorie density: peanut butter, almond butter, shots of olive oil, whey protein shakes with a cup or two of milk, heavy whipping cream, delicious coated almonds .

This is what I buy $10.49 for a 2 pack. It's good stuff.

My additional spices are white-pepper, cumin, and a some sumac. I think the sumac is largely pointless.

u/jceez · 2 pointsr/todayilearned

2 lbs for $10

Or like a tablespoon of chia seeds if you get the chia pet for $23

u/dhaggerfin · 1 pointr/loseit

These are my favorites for such an indulgence. 6g of carbs, 3g of that is fiber.

u/mkay0 · 1 pointr/keto

here and here are also acceptable choices.

Change your fridge and pantry first.

Switch to vegan mayonnaise.

Get Almond/Oat/Coconut milk. Now you can have vegan cereal etc.

Check the ingredients on your bread...

Have a go-to meal if you only have 5 minutes. Like a sliced tofurkey sandwich...

1 addition to your pantry should be hemp seeds. I get these on Amazon on subscription for $11.51/pound. Add to oatmeal/cereal/anything...

u/gettinThere · 1 pointr/keto

They sell them on Amazon for cheap. Well, at least cheaper than my grocery store.

Not worth it if you can't stop, or if they stall you. But otherwise... mmmmmm!

We buy these spicy peanuts from the B and T market on Park at Cannon (cause they are all the noms) and are left with a bunch of Szechuan peppercorns after.

I would be surprised if B and T doesn’t sell peppercorns in their spice section though.

Emerald's Cocoa Roast Almonds is what I currently have on the shelf. Half off on Amazon right now for 4.

u/cohen_dev · 2 pointsr/vegan

i've seen tahini at almost every big grocery store.

it's often found in the kosher section (where the gefilte fish, matzo, and matzo ball stuff is), which is often near the asian sections, and I've also seen it near the nut butters.

and of course, there's always amazon

Magic Chili with Peanuts I can't stop eating it once I open the bag!

u/ViktorV · 1 pointr/EatCheapAndHealthy

.38 cents an ounce isn't bad for being shipped right to your door, but typically wholesale goes around for $3-4 a pound, which is around .20-25 an ounce.

But, effort plus grinding when you can get the same (shipped to your door) at .36 an ounce of tahini premade professionally.

I'd go with this instead of manually grinding it.

u/riadfodig · 1 pointr/EatCheapAndHealthy

No idea if it's the same, but you can buy it on Amazon if you really want to. Note that this is more than double the price of what I buy locally for the same size. Try to see if there's an asian grocery store near you.

I'm not familiar with tahini prices. Is this a good deal, or should I check local Middle Eastern groceries?

u/skyburn · 2 pointsr/Cooking

These maybe?

If I scan the barcode, I get links to this: which appears to be very similar.

Bob's Red Mill Chia seeds. 12,500+ calories, including 630g of protein, and a whopping 1050g of dietary fiber for 25 bucks after the S&S 15% discount. Packed with EFAs and minerals. I mix a couple of tablespoons with Ultima or some lime juice and stevia.

u/mph1204 · 1 pointr/loseit

awesome! check out /r/paleo and /r/keto for some advice about how to keep yourself full between meals and how to replace snacks with healthier ones. for instance, i'm a chocolate FIEND but i've found that cocoa covered almonds like these are a healthy alternative.

your diet will have more of an impact with your waistline than exercising. i use exercise to keep myself motivated to diet. i think to myself, why the hell would i want to waste all that time i just spent working out with by eating that candy bar? then i grab an apple.

u/stega_megasaurus · 1 pointr/running

You can't go wrong with chia seeds . You may have heard of them and they generally get positive reviews for their high nutritional content but less so for their hydrophiliac properties. I would have similar problems with my long runs when I first started running - but chia seems to really moderate and control things if I take it right before I go out.

u/GoateusMaximus · 1 pointr/keto

Check these out. Not from Amazon, though -- your grocery store probably has 'em.

Edit: Fuck. I take it back. They contain a small amount of sucralose.
