I voted all of the above, asuuming that the rice is brown and that we are keeping the skins on the taters!

I love dried beans.  Cheaper and easier to get into my 3rd floor apartment than cans.  

Bananas have a lot of calories, but I like to use 1/2 on my cereal and also like making banana bread out of the old ones.  I found this stuff in the baking aisle called "ligher bake" (or something like that) that I use in place of oil.  It comes out better than substituting applecause.

Carrots are my go-to food when I just can't get my appetite to shut up.  I know they have more calories than celery, but celery just doesn't "do it" for me :)
