Lunch can be a challenging meal. There can be various office temptations- whether it’s unhealthy foods left in the break room or co-workers twisting your arm to grab lunch at the nearby burger joint. Taking a few steps to plan ahead can make a BIG difference!
Going out to Eat?- Take a few minutes to look at the menu on-line before leaving. Make up your mind to order a healthy choice and others may follow suit.
Packing your Lunch?- Make sure you have a serving or two of veggies, a lean protein (4-6oz) and a healthy fat- key word healthy. For a healthy fat, make sure it is unsaturated. Examples include- adding avocado to your sandwich, using oil and vinegar on your salad, or enjoying olives with your hummus, etc.
I encourage you to step away from the standard sandwich and chips lunch. Focus on veggies first! Think sliced peppers, carrots, cucumbers, broccoli, avocado, olives, hummus, quinoa, hard boiled eggs, or grilled chicken on a romaine or spinach salad of course.
What is your go-to healthy lunch?
