I'm doing a 1500 calorie diet and I am running out of ideas as to what to eat. Does anyone have suggestions that would be low in calorie meal ideas...I'm getting sick of lettuce Sad

I have a bunch of recipes. Fish tacos are good...instead of a tortilla you can have the fish and salsa over 1/2 to 1/4 cup of brown rice. I like my fish with a little bit of some type of fruit salsa (mango/peach...or I take grapefruit and add some chili powder and diced jalepeno.) Ground chicken/turkey breast burgers are also good. Just eat 1/2 the bun. I even put 1tbs of reduced fat mayo on it.

Mostly I've just been trying to keep my meals to 250 to 300 calories each. I make my main dish account for about 200ish calories, then I fill the rest in with veggies...a salad, or steamed broccoli or spinach.

Hope this gives you a few ideas. Let us know what you come up with

vegan chilis and curries/stews are good, I have a good recipe for a black bean chili with lots of cumin that is to die for and virtually fat free, I will post it. I find vegan recipes to be very satisfying because the focus is on the spice/vegetable flavour combinations - you don't even miss the meat. You could add some tofu if desired but I don't usually.

eat too much salt.
And if you're hypothyroid like me, you go through sodium pretty quickly, so you have to salt your meals just to prevent low sodium levels from contributing to your symptoms.
