I noticed when I turned about 30 my appetite really tanked. I just don’t need to eat as much as I used to. Sadly I still really like to eat. So on the days when I want something to eat but am just not really that hungry, I have a few light dinner ideas that I go to that satisfy my emotional/habitual need for food without breaking the calorie bank.
For a light dinner some would think salads are the obvious option, but when you want something that feels a little more hearty try one of these light dinner ideas that are still whole foods, but more than greens.
