Top Five Healthy Lunches For the Office at Home Or For Weight Loss


Visitors: 485

Lunch is a difficult meal for many people trying to lose weight. It's tempting to go to a shop near the office and grab something there, but often this is no good for the waist or the wallet! Alternatively, you may choose to bring something in from home - and the most obvious choice is a sandwich. However, given that one should try to restrict the amount of carbs one eats in a day, a sandwich may not be the best choice.

So, here's some suggestions for some sandwich-free lunches.

1. Fruit

This may not be many people's first choice for a filling, satisfying lunch but it is worth doing every now and again particularly if you know you've got a carb-rich dinner that night. A fruit salad is healthy, delicious and makes you feel great for being so healthy!

2. Home Made Soup

Great for the winter! When you make soup for dinner, just make a little bit more so that you have some left over for lunch the next day. You can either heat it up in the microwave, or take a flask to the office. It may look nerdy, but your waistline will thank you for it!

3. Salad

Mix up the dressing at home (no mayo!) and keep it in a jar in the office fridge. Put whatever you like in the salad: spinach, rocket, olives, radishes, tomatoes, peppers, red onion . . . . healthy, delicious and filling.

4. Houmous

This is much better if you make it yourself - you can control how much oil you add and it tastes better. It isn't low fat, but it's healthy and delicious - but make sure that you don't have any important meetings in the afternoon because your breath will be garlicky! Instead of having it with bread, try sticks of carrots and peppers.

5. Couscous Salad

A great summery lunch - prepare the couscous according to the packet and add mint, parsley, tomatoes, red onion, cucumber, sunflower seeds, olive oil and lemon. Yummy!
