This is my first post. I’ve scanned the threads and haven’t seen this yet, so....I’m wondering what are your safe foods? So far, mine are sugar free jello, small cans of tuna, fat free plain greek yogurt, apples, plain salads with zero calorie Walden Farms salad dressing, zoodles (zucchini spirals) with low calorie marinara sauce.
I need variety, so looking for ideas. :)

Vegan protein bars that I make with vegan protein powder, fiber boost, vegan sugar-free chocolate chips, oatmeal flour, 1 tbsp. almond butter and 1/2 cup almond milk.

 

Indian food at work

 

Berries, pineapple, bananas, dried fruits

 

Salads like you mentioned, but I'll have regular dressing.

String cheese. For some reason I don’t binge on that. One seems to suit.

Popcorn if it’s in a single-serve bag

Baked fish. Like tilapia, cod. Or shrimp. Quite low cal for what you get.

I wish I had that strength. I can’t have string cheese in the house. I can’t seem to eat less than 6 at a time! Lol

Greek yogurt
Cottage cheese
Babybels
Fruit
Spinach/Arugula
Cucumber
Sunflower & pumpkin seeds
Eggs
Prawns
Tuna
Vegetarian slices/brekky sausages/burgers
Clif bars (on work-days only)

Just recently allowed oatmeal and low-cal cereal with cashew milk to join the team.

Popcorn is somewhat safe unless I start eating it daily (like recently and now I am not allowing myself it for awhile.)

Oh and of course tea tea tea!

Broccoli, mushrooms, cabbage, onion, peppers, snap peas, brussel sprouts, green beans, carrots, turnips, spinach (or any leafy greens), tomatoes, pumpkin, cucumber, pickles. Grilled chicken or fish, eggs. Mustard, soy sauce, low calorie marinara (or spice my own tomato sauce), broth, salsa. Grapefruit, strawberries, cantaloupe- are my safest fruits, but I'm usually okay with all fruits. Oatmeal has recently become somewhat safe for me.

Yes, on the pickles. I could eat a whole jar!

Other safe foods: most vegetables (except the starchier ones, even though I love them), most fruits, oatmeal, hummus, popcorn, hot sauce (I put this on so many things), dark chocolate, peanut butter, nut milks, veggie broth, tofu, some dried fruits (raisins, apricots, apples).

As weird as it sounds, "Krispe Kreme Donuts".  We don't have Krispe Kreme where I live so when I travel I will get some.  I keep some frozen in the freezer at home

Everything is safe when I'm in control. Nothing is safe when I'm in binge mode.
However.
Safe =
*Foods that are VERY low calorie like mushrooms, cabbage, celery, broth, asparagus, zucchini, salad greens, tomato, onion, cucumber, radishes, pickles, saurkraut, snap peas.
*Low key slightly higher calorie food like broccoli, cauliflower, green beans, watermelon, canteloupe, turnips, carrots, beets, almond milk, egg whites.
*Foods that I hate like bananas, shrimp... those are actually the only foods I hate fml.

High protein foods are what I choose most during restriction (mainly protein bars and chips). But nothing is off the table as long as it's no more than 200 calories at a time. I need to end the day on an even hundred of calories (400 or 600 or 800). Yesterday I had an unplanned cookie that brought me to 450 for the day and I was compelled to eat until 600 calories even though I wasn't hungry. Numbers are both my passion and nemesis.

All in small amounts: any fruit, vegetable, meat, cheese, nut, oil, spice, coffee, water, and heavy whipped cream (splash in coffee) if it doesn't fit in one of these catagories, I won't touch it.
