I slice and freeze portions ready to put in the toaster. MMMMM Yum!
Lunch is such a crucial part of the day. This is when we may feel our blood sugar levels fluctuating and cravings for sweet or salty foods kick in. Raiding the fridge and cupboards at 3pm doesn’t tick any of the boxes for a nourishing lunch either.
I think of food as fuel. A meal that makes you feel lethargic and sleepy is not nourishing your cells. When you look at you meal think to yourself.. Is this meal nutrient dense.
Three key points to remember when making lunch:
#1 Protein is vital at this time of the day as it provides a slow release of energy and will stabilize your blood glucose levels.
#2 Fat chosen from whole food sources is also important. It is satiating, meaning you will feel full after eating it and are less likely to reach for an unhealthy snack at afternoon tea.
#3 The next step is to incorporate vegetables into your lunch. Now you are in the game and your body will be thanking you.
