I consider myself an expert (three scopes this year alone!). I usually stay away from the chicken/beef broths because they are so salty, but many find them filling. You could also make Ramen noodles without the noodles if you wanted a different flavor. Also try a sorbet (they are non-dairy and as long as not a "red" flavor allowed), popsicles, and lots and lots of juice. You can have cranberry juice even though it is red, but I've always found that apple juice does the trick for me. Go through a container of it during the day. Also, ask others around you to not eat in front of you or cook foods that cause a lot of odor - it's just unnecessary torture! My fiance sneaks food when I'm not watching and it feels like he's going through it with me :)
