High Satiety Foods

These foods are high in fiber and water, so they fill up your stomach and leave you satisfied without making you consume extra calories and fat. Tasty high satiety foods include chickpeas, broccoli, raspberries, and more. For a great high satiety recipe, try this green bean hummus, which uses two high satiety foods (green beans and chickpeas).
