Healthy Eating – Lunch
It’s very easy to be unhealthy with your lunch. In today’s crazy, busy world, it can be difficult to take the time to make lunch the day before or the morning of your work day, so you may end up grabbing a frozen meal or going out to a fast food place. But those are very unhealthy options. Frozen meals and fast food are high in sodium and other things that simply aren’t good for you. Here are a few tips for eating much better food at lunch.
Think simple: you can make a healthy lunch using a whole grain wrap, some meat, and a few slices of cheese. These basic wraps can be enhanced with things like guacamole and salsa. You can add some avocado and other fruit on the side to create a very filling and healthy lunch. Whole grain wraps help get you the fiber you need, and you can find some that are fairly low carb, too.
Look at your frozen meals. While most of them are high in sodium, there are a few lines of frozen meals that are healthier. Some are low-carb and don’t have as much salt and preservatives in them. If you absolutely can’t avoid eating these foods, at least eat the ones that are somewhat better for you. However, it’s best if you avoid them altogether.
What are you drinking? A lot of people grab a soda with their lunch so they get that nice caffeine boost during the afternoon, but that’s really not a good idea. Drink water or a tea that has many different health benefits, such as a green tea.
You may also want to start taking an acai berry supplement. Research has shown that a supplement such as the acai berry may be able to provide you with a number of benefits.
