Since going vegan I eat almost double what I usually do!!

It's all healthy so i'm not worried too much but I can't even go out for dinner and drinks without needing snacks, i'm like a garbage disposal!!!



Are there any foods that will help with this?

I've tried having wholegrain breads and bananas with my meals but it still isn't enough!! My meals are the same size as i've always had with about the same amount of carbs and proteins.



HELP!!

a combination of healthy fats and complex carbs does the trick for me.

Peanut butter-or any nut butter along with some fruit

Avocadoes-by themselves or with some tortillas

plain nuts

oatmeal



those are just a few ideas

I think it varies a bit from person to person. But, for me:



Tofu - this one wins; it keeps me full for several hours

Oatmeal - I eat oatmeal (with dried fruits) for breakfast when I know I'll lunch a bit later than usual because it keeps me satisfied for a long long time

Beans/lentils/chickpeas

Multigrain bread




Hope it helped

Have you tried simply drinking more water with your meals? That can help.

Foods with high fiber and foods with decent amounts of protien keep you full the longest. Some foods that work for me are beans and rice, tofu, seitan..even mix up a version of your favorite vegan protein in a smoothie to drink when you need something to fill in the gap. Oh yeah and apples are good at helping you stay full..just eat one before you have your meal...you'll be full for a while. This works for me, I hope it helps.

One "Organic Food Bar: Vegan" keeps me full for a few hours, that might help if you can find any.

Those organic food bars are so good, they do help with hunger..thanks for reminding me, I may just have to make a store run and buy some.

I tend to graze throughout the day, instead of having three or four large meals. At work, I always have seeds, nuts, and fruit handy to snack on.



I also can endorse oatmeal. Just a little bit makes me soooooo full!

I had their protein one for the first time not too long ago and was totally blown away with how good it was. It's nice and heavy-in-the-good-way.



Normally, though, I switch between their 'Vegan' and 'Omega-3' bars for breakfast when I want to take a break from fruit and toast. To my knowledge, they're both vegan-friendly, as was the protein one.



Sooo good.
