As with breakfast, lunch should also contain protein. Soups and salads are great choices and it is easy to include protein with them in the form of nuts, meat or fish.
Lots of leafy green vegetables help our bodies become more alkaline which assists us to metabolise and remove excess body fat.
Salads also rehydrate our bodies and provide minerals and vitamins. The amount of carbohydrates in out diet depends on the amount of exercise we do and how active our lifestyle is. A great time saver can be to have planned leftovers from dinner to enjoy the next day for lunch.
I have overcome the challenge of giving my children salads and soups for school lunches by packing their food in small cooler boxes or a thermos flask. They love it.
Too many pasta or bread based lunches can tire you as the digestive system has to expend a lot of energy to metabolise these foods and often people are looking for a 3pm pick me up afterwards in the form of chocolate .
