If your anything like me, life is always on-the-go. Between classes, workouts, meetings, or even events it can be hard to catch your breathe and let alone eat a nutritious meal.
Here's my go-to formula for lunches & dinners
If you're cooking, I generally recommend cooking with an oil spray instead of using oil, because eating the fat is typically more filling and satisfying than having it in more of a liquid form.
Here are some EASY, portable ways to put this formula to use in a lunch!
2 cups non-starchy vegetables (about 50 calories)
1 "regular" serving of protein (about 120 calories)
1 can tuna
1 small packet turkey or beef jerky
2 hard boiled eggs
4oz turkey deli slices
4oz roast beef slices
100-200 calories of fats
1/4 cup nuts (about 1oz, or a 170-200 calorie pack)
1/8 cup nuts (about 2 Tbsp, or a 100-calorie pack)
1 nut butter packet (1-2 Tbsp if you want to measure out yourself)
1-2 string cheeses
1-2 slices of cheese
1 single-serving packet guacamole
1 high-fat yogurt
Here are some lunch EXAMPLES!
