The Joy of Sandwiches
When most people make a sandwich it’s a piece of meat like ham, a slice of cheese, and a bit of mayo or mustard. Boring! Switch it up. Get creative. For example, try avocado, tomato, and lettuce on whole-wheat bread. Add a slice or two of turkey if you want a bit of lean protein on your sandwich. And there’s nothing wrong with a bit of light mayonnaise. It’s low in calories and fat.
Bento Box Style
A traditional bento box has rice, meat, and a vegetable. It’s a perfectly balanced meal. You can embrace this Japanese lunch box style of a meal with your own interpretation. For example, hummus, chopped carrots and celery, and a chicken breast.
Soup is one of those things you can make at home on the weekend. You can freeze some of it in small lunch-sized containers and take it to work. A quick warm-up in the microwave and your lunch is ready to go. Add a side of whole wheat crackers or bread and you have a very satisfying lunch. Try bean soups and vegetable soups for maximum nutrition.
Lunch doesn’t have to be fattening and it doesn’t have to be dull. A little creativity and you can make a healthy lunch that makes your co-workers green with envy. A little planning in your meals goes a long way to helping with your nutrition and overall health. If you’re trying to lose weight, your choice in meals will have a huge impact on your success.
