Foods that make you feel great?

I had a lunch today that I made me feel very good. 2 apples, 1/4 bbq chicken, 1 big serving hummus (no bread) and a ton of water. So many meals make me feel lousy, I thought I'd share.

A breakfast that includes lots of leafy greens (cooked), like spinach or swiss chard. I can barely get myself out the door on time at the moment and I miss my sauted spinach and tomatoes with a poached egg and slice of canadian bacon. Sigh.....

My favorite meals:

Baked salmon with honey/oil/vinigar, sweet potato w/cinnamon/butter, steamed grean beans/almonds.

Amy's organic frozen pizza (plain), topped with onion/peppers/tomatoes at home.

Spring mix salad topped with grilled chicken/tomatoes/cucumbers/croutons/raw red onion/black olives/feta cheese with oil and vingar.

Mmmm....so hungry ;)

My white chili recipe makes me feel great. It keeps me feeling satisfied, my picky digestive system feels great when I eat it, and NO sugar lows!!! I am looking for more recipes like it so I can feel that good after other meals too.

Oatmeal. Crusty bread dipped in olive oil. Lentil soup. Stir fry with tofu.

Real food vs. fake food. Meaning, when I cook with real spices, make my own salad dressing, the food always makes me feel good. Nothing processed.

mmm i just had the tastiest lunch i've had in soooo long.
a low carb flax tortilla filled with 1/4 cup homeade hummus and cucumber slices, (i really love cooking so making hummus from scratch was fun more than a nusuance for me) and a tiny apple cookie from a batch i made a few days ago with a glass of unsweetened ice tea, sooooo satisfying, yummy, and healthy!

I most definitely agree with the 'real' food comment. When I first began dieting I started making everything from scratch so I could better control fat and calories, and now I really can tell when I've eaten something that's been packaged and prepared with a bunch of preservatives, artificial colorings, and fillers. It took awhile for me to put my finger on it, and it was a bit of a revalation for me at the time. I try not to prostelitze about it, but wow! That factor really affects how good I feel after I've eaten something.

I love mediterranean style food - the unprocessed kind. REAL pastry, REAL cheese, olives, olive oil, juicy tomatoes, tasty cucumbers, etc. Real bread.

I agree about "real" food, too. As well, as fresh ingredients vs. packaged, there's also a strain of food that i guess is "diet" food. You know, you look at the plate and you can tell the person is on a diet. I can cook a delicious meal, serve it to guests, and they really enjoy it even though it's within my diet guidelines. The guests eat larger portions than I do and add bread that I don't eat (and dessert!), but that's it.
