Nutrition is the key
When we’re trying to stay on track with our weight loss goals exercise is great, but what we’re putting in our mouths matters most and ties the two together for maximum results!
A low glycemic, high in fiber, and moderate carbs kind of food such as oatmeal or high in protein like eggs are both excellent food choices for breakfast. These will kickstart your metabolism and keep your energy levels up until lunchtime.
So, what about lunchtime? We live busy lives and sometimes make poor choices when lunchtime creeps up and we didn’t prepare anything. Maybe you order takeout or grab a snack from the vending machine. Preparing lunch for yourself doesn’t have to take a lot of time! In fact, I’m going to share three of my simple lunches with your; All three taste delicious and preptime is next to none!
Rice cakes with tuna and avocado are delicious and a must try! Tuna is packed with protein and avocado with your healthy mono-saturated fats. Top it with lemon juice, tomato, and onion.
Cauliflower rice, grilled veggies, beef or chicken is another healthy choice. Cauliflower rice is a great low-carb option that replaces white rice and is packed with antioxidants that help balance hormones. Add your grilled veggies such as bell peppers, onions, mushrooms, and spinach as well as your protein, beef or chicken. Throw a little salsa or low sugar pasta sauce in there and enjoy!
If you’re tired of eating the same old salad, give this egg, potato, and green bean salad a try. Make two or three boiled eggs and chop. Mix them with four boiled, chopped mini potatoes, cooked green beans, chopped red pepper, cucumber, chives and onion. Top it off with 1 tbsp of grainy mustard and lemon juice.
There you have it! Give these meal ideas a try and let me know what you think!
