After I read Whitney's article about appetite-suppressing foods, I thought I'd try to put together a little salad from the ingredients she mentions for a filling lunch that would get me through the afternoon. After some experimenting, I hit on a pretty tasty combination. Here's my recipe to beat the cravings!

  • 2 cups fresh spinach
  • 1 small apple, diced
  • 1 Tbsp. pine nuts
  • 1/2 cup canned garbanzo beans, drained
  • 1 Tbsp. flaxseeds, ground
  • 1 Tbsp. olive oil
  • Juice of half a lemon (or to taste)
  • Salt and pepper to taste

In a large salad bowl, toss all ingredients together and enjoy!
