Starches are good for you but Protein should be your #1 choice ALWAYS!  Then the good FATS.  Starches can be add as a 3rd choice with meals.  Don't over do it because as you already know, they fill up your tummy pretty quickly. But nevertheless, our bodies crave them so add it to your meals because our doctor's would rather have you eat then not.

Next Steps...

Breads and rice was my easiest go to.  Work on packing bread, bagels, crackers or even naan into Ziploc bags.  Have them handy so you can grab them when you are hungry.  Spread some peanut butter on the breads or eat a boiled egg with rice. Staying prepared will keep you energized and healthy. 🙂
