Lunch can sometimes be the most difficult meal to put together since we are typically out and about. Here are some fool proof ways to make the most out of your lunch! These rules apply for bringing your lunch or dining out.

PROTEIN: 4 oz for women and 6 oz for men (on average)

FAT: think healthy fat … avocado, olive oil, salmon

FIBER: avocado, chia seeds, flax seeds

GREENS: salads… pick any green you like!

Some meal options ….

  • Large green salad with 1/2 avocado, chicken, and olive oil and lemon as your dressing

  • Salmon, 1 cup of spinach, 1 avocado, and 1 cup of rice

Putting these meals together should be FUN!

Mix and match … there are seriously endless options! Find the foods you love, and mix and match so that you have 1 food item from each category.

Putting your meals together this way will keep you full longer, and help you reach your goals faster. Whether you are looking to gain weight, lose weight, add muscle tone or lower your blood sugar there is a combination that is perfect for YOU!
