In terms of filling calories, chicken breast meat is your best friend. It's actually terrible from a calorie/carbon standpoint, but I buy it at the local farmer's market to assuage my liberal guilt. One of my favorite lunches is a chicken reuben.

4 oz of chicken breast meat
as much sauerkraut (homemade) and fat-free thousand island dressing as you want
1 oz slice of swiss cheese (I use the real, 100% fat stuff, because otherwise what's the point?)
two slices of homemade rye IPA bread with whole wheat flour

Works out to about 600 calories, and I don't think I could eat more than one a day, it's so filling.

I make my own sushi/nigiri too, and I'll post on that as soon as I can take some pictures to show y'all up. ;)

basic rye, sub beer for water?
and what's with the Al Gore chicken? I don't think I've heard that one, I though everyone was angry at cows.

I only get angry with cows and chickens when I accidently overcook them...

Pretty much. I just make a basic bread recipe with whole wheat flour, but replace about 15% of it with pulverized spent grains, Rye IPA being my favorite. Oatmeal stout grist is pretty incredible too. Using the spent grains adds a ton of fiber, so it makes for very filling bread, but since you've mashed all the carbohydrates (hopefully) there isn't much left in it, nutritionally speaking.

and what's with the Al Gore chicken? I don't think I've heard that one, I though everyone was angry at cows.

I'm trying to remember where I heard that; I think it was in a TED Talk. The reasoning is that cattle (that are free range) provide incredibly rich fertilizer, and the massive growth in grasses that occurs when they have adequate pasture land does a lot to offset their own carbon emissions. Chicken feces, by contrast, are highly acidic and nitrogenous and will "burn out" the soil if they're kept on grassland too long. In a CAFO, I'm sure chicken would be better.
