Say no to takeout, fast food, and vending machine lunches. Here is some inspiration for a balanced wholesome lunch:
- Chicken or turkey thighs, cooked to your liking. Keep it light and use as little oil as you can, since thighs are pretty fatty as is. Roasting, baking or poaching are good low-fat cooking methods.
- Large side salad with as many bright and colorful vegetables as you can fit in a bowl. Throw in some chickpeas, brown rice or bulgur for an extra energy boost.
