Here in this post we have put together a few healthy lunch meal suggestions that will boost up your energy levels and guarantee your daily nutritional needs are fully satisfied! The best part? These meals can be bagged, so you can eat them during your much awaited lunch break!
Tortilla with Homemade Beef Stuffing
Preparing your own lunch meal is the best way to avoid the tempting and calorie-packed foods offered at the restaurants. Tortillas sold at the restaurants surely are delicious, but they are also very high in calories, sodium, and carbohydrates, all of which are sabotaging your health. If you can’t resist the allure of the tortillas, make one all by yourself. Roast one piece of beef meat, wrap it in a corn tortilla and add just a bit of horseradish. Accompany it with a green lettuce leaf and onion rings.
Mozzarella and Tomato Salad
One serving (100 g /3.55 oz) of this happy mozzarella and tomato union contains only 249 calories and 16 g /0.5 oz of fat. In order to spice it up, you can add 1 cup (128 g /4.5 oz) of fresh spinach leaves, a handful of sunflower seeds and season it with a dressing made from a bit of olive oil crushed with one garlic and basil.
Happy Pineapple Sandwich
If you simply insist on having sandwiches for lunch, then you can make your sandwich with a Hawaiian twist. For this sandwich you need to use bagels made from whole wheat flour. The sandwich needs to be filled with two slices of grilled chicken breasts topped with one slice of Swiss cheese, two or three pineapple slices and one slice of jalapeno. If do not like spicey peppers, replace them with onions.
Crab Meets Avocado Salad
The avocado and crab salad is a very satisfying meal, which means that you will be feeling full and skip the snacks, which is a good thing. In order to prepare it, take one avocado, remove the pits, dice it and throw it into a bowl. Add a half of pound of a crabmeat, one cup of fresh spinach leaves, two cups of whole-wheat bruschetta and season it with low fat yoghurt dressing spiced up with just a bit of dried basil.
Healthy Alternatives for the Entire Day
If you are unsure about packing meat and taking it with you at work, don’t worry: the best meat replacements is the eggplant. This underestimated veggie is an excellent meat-rich-in-protein substitute and it is very tasteful. If you want to go extra healthy with your food, instead of tortilla, you can wrap your meal into a lettuce leaf.
