Ciao a Tutti! Today I wanted to write a post on nutrition/food, since I haven't in a few days now. And I wanted to discuss something that we all worry about on our daily challenge of remaining healthy... and that is: healthy on the go, fast food alternatives!
Lunch is that time of the day that is SO CRUCIAL for me. By noon, I usually need to get some air, and renew my energy to be able to finish my day nicely, but I also need to eat light and healthy, so that I won't feel sleepy during the afternoon, and my productivity doesn't slow down.
Eating healthy, whether out or on the go, is especially hard when you have little time like ehhh... ummm... ALL of us! So, let me give you an example of what I get for lunch, and I hope it inspires you! If you follow my blog, you might know that, my husband and I work together, and a couple of times a week, we go out during lunch time to a nearby park and have quick "picnic". We do it to have a moment for ourselves, catch a few sun beams, and drive our attention away from the computer for a few minutes :) I usually buy my lunch on these days, at a gas station that has a nice mini market. There's tons of temptations there: carbs, burgers, sandwiches, sodas, snacks... and I MUST stay away from them, or I know I'll regret it later! So this is my choice: a "Chef" Salad with Egg, Lettuce, Low Fat Cheese and Ham Strings, Carrot, Cherry Tomato and an Olive Oil and Vinegar Dressing.
I drink Sparkling water or Club Soda, for two reasons. First, because it's just a little more interesting and easier to drink, in my opinion, than just plain water. And second, because it makes me feel fuller sooner, and hence I eat less.
As a dessert, I have a small bottle of 0% fat drinkable strawberry yogurt. This particular one gives you 50% of the recommended daily calcium intake you need for healthy bones, so that's a huge plus for me!
Would you like something like this for lunch too?
