What are some very nutritionally dense, low calorie yet filling paleo foods?

I'm looking for paleo foods that are nutrient dense and calorie low, but still filling .

Green leaf lettuces are great from a nutritional and caloric standpoint, but just aren't very filling.

Grass fed beef, eggs and squash are filling and nutrient dense, but not particularly low on calories.

Are there any good examples people know about? Or low-calorie dishes that can conquer hunger?

I know about a bowl of romaine with a tablespoon of olive oil might do the trick

Why low cal? If you are trying to lose weight, nutrient density will help, and those foods may not be low cal.

Go for nutrient and calorie dense. Especially if you are dieting. It's a little confusing at first, but when your stomach stops being stretched by all that salad you won't be able to eat as much junk when you end up cheating.

Potatoes, with a satiety index of 323.

Liver is probably the most nutrient dense per calorie. Combine that with potatoes as giacinto suggests and there you have it.

raw broccoli and raw cauliflower work well for me. also, cherry tomatoes are delicious, juicy, and rather satisfying. cherry tomatoes are my go-to snacks when I have cravings late at night.

Try spinach and chard instead of lettuce. They are packed full of nutrients and therefore can satisfy cravings. Mushrooms too, for niacin and vitamin D. These two choices together can satisfy cravings because of missing nutrients at a very low caloric intake.

In the animal product department, liver and seafood.

I've found a big bowl of brocolli or Brussels sprouts to be surprisingly filling. I haven't noticed any other veggies to have the same effect.

Raw Kale - The fiber is insane if you can stomach the flavor. I use pure lemon juice and coconut oil to cut the bitter.

Cabbage steamed is slightly sweet and good for your liver as it helps it to detox. Very low calorie. I've swapped out potatoes in stew and use Kale and Cabbage now with no complaints from the others in the household.

How about a few ounces of grassfed bison liver pate on a bunch of kale (and if you want to be stuffed, raw carrots and celery)?
