Ive always like Asian delicacies and yesterday on a feast day i was walking past an Asian shop and bought some and i was surprised when i happened to look at the calories how little it is.
If you dont know what it is... the pic, on my new favourite online calorie counter
http://www.caloriegallery.com/foods/cal ... kimchi.htm
Just 50g is quite a bit and its only 13 calories
heres the wiki on it
its also nutritional. excert from wiki article
Kimchi is made of various vegetables and contains a high concentration of dietary fiber, while being low in calories. One serving also provides over 50% of the daily recommended amount of vitamin C and carotene. Most types of kimchi contain onions, garlic, and chilli peppers, all of which are salutary. The vegetables used in kimchi also contribute to its overall nutritional value. Kimchi is rich in vitamin A, thiamine (B1), riboflavin (B2), calcium, and iron, and contains a number of lactic acid bacteria, among those the typical species Lactobacillus kimchii. Health magazine named kimchi in its list of top five "World's Healthiest Foods" for being rich in vitamins, aiding digestion, and even possibly reducing cancer growth

they look yum. don't think anything like it here in Australia.
since posting about Kimchi in June (which btw i dont consume.. i guess i have to be in the "mood") my new fast day nibble is a spoon or two of cottage cheese. Gives me protein and calcium in one hit. I do have to control the urge though as yesterday on a fast day I "accidentally" consumed 1/2 a tub.. oops. no wonder i gained a bit of weight int the 24 hours.. Guilt.

I find it really hard to be completely food free and when i started 5:2 would eat low cal things all day, skipping breakfast and lunch. then after a few months tried the nothing but found i had difficulty concentrating if working at computer. So i discovered cottage cheese as a great thing to "break the fast". Nothing else. stopped doing the fruit pieces as thats too much sugar in one hit. I think cottage cheese is "safe".. my thread on cottage cheese foodies-f31/your-thoughts-on-cottage-cheese-t11362.html
My fav nibble has been 50 calories worth of strawberries, think I will change it now...
• Veggie broth (natural broth cube) with a tiny dollop of coconut oil
• Popcorn--the bagged kind, cals less than 50 per cup
• Plain fat free Greek yogurt and fruit
• Hardboiled egg (or poached if I'm desperate and didn't hardboil eggs)
A good late afternoon "meal" (I don't have dinner till 9pm or later) is a spinach salad with low cal dressing (careful it's not full of sugar), hardboiled egg, cucumber, radish if I have, tomato, raw white mushrooms...you get the idea. Lots of chewing for less than 200 cals.
