A good balanced lunch will make second half of the day more energetic plus will keep the mid-evening snack cravings away. Sharing today, a delicious, healthier and easy collection of lunch recipe ideas which you enjoy all months summer and even early fall.
I like to keep my lunch healthier still just right filling so that I can avoid craving for an evening snack. In my personal experience, evening snacks have always resulted in adding few pounds. (weight gain)
Whenever I can, I love to pack lunch in advance. This one thing checks off an important item from my to-do list. Especially because if lunch is ready to go, there is less chance that we eat out i.e. indulge in a hefty dinner-size burrito for lunch.. then end up napping or drinking additional coffee in afternoon.
In short, a balanced, ready-to-go lunch will make a difference in your health, not only in summer but all four seasons. So if you don't focus on your lunch. Pay attention! There is no need to skip lunch for weight loss. Rather eat balanced lunch, portion control so that you don't overeat, and then see the magic! Seriously, you can get your health back with one healthy lunch a day.
Today, I have created a collection of few of my favorite Recipes that we love to enjoy for lunch. A lot of salads, chicken and shrimp based lunch bowl ideas, protein packed vegetarian quinoa and chickpea bowls, and few just-veggie salads that you can pair with chicken (cooked any way).
Tip: Enjoy pasta for lunch, just load it with veggies and portion control to keep check on calories.
Collection currently has my top favorite 30 lunch recipes. I'll update this with 10 New Recipes as month progress. You can pin this page and use this for reference whole month.
Note: Few of recipes have base of quinoa. Please note that quinoa is not carb-free. When I'm making carb-free meals.. I replace quinoa with cauliflower rice or zucchini, or portion control to limit serving.
