What Real Healthy People Actually Eat For Lunch
But what do healthy people actually eat?
There’s so much talk about eating healthily, healthy diets, healthy recipes. There’s just so much information floating around about this topic that it’s hard to find the actual recipes amongst the vague phrases and murky pieces of advice. But what do healthy people actually eat? Many doctors and scientists claim that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but that doesn’t mean you can skip lunch or, on the contrary, get one at your nearest fast food joint.
Here are a few healthy and quick to whip recipes for lunch that are simple to make and quite delicious too.
A tamarind soup mix recipe checks all the marks on your ‘healthy lunch’ list. It’s chock full of nutrients, fiber, vitamins and protein, it’s pretty lean but also hot and very filling, an excellent lunch option. And another important thing, it stands well being refrigerated, so if you don’t mind eating the same lunch for a couple of days, that will save you a lot of time.
Some people think that baked potatoes in general and sweet potatoes in particular shouldn’t even be place in the same sentence with healthy food, but actually, plenty of healthy dishes can be made with them. This stuffed ranchero sweet potato, for instance. Sweet potatoes will give carrots a run for vitamin A level, and stuffing it with protein-full peas and beans makes this a great vegan option for lunch.
If you’re looking for something healthy on the seafood side, try this salt and pepper shrimp recipe, no shell. It’s light, simple and will give you an excellent midday boost of energy. To say nothing of all the omega fatty oils you’ll get with all those shrimp. You can also cook it aforetime and take it with you to work if work’s where you have lunch and there aren’t that many healthy variants.
If you love creamy soups, but they don’t seem too healthy, try these vegetable grits. When you process this in your kitchen processor, add a bunch of greens, such as kale or spinach, maybe a bit of nuts for flavor, almond or cedar pine nuts, they bring out an excellent taste. Served with a few slices of boiled eggs, this is a simple to make delicious meal even those who don’t really like greens tend to approve of.
Another good way to cook a healthy meal is to take a regular recipe and make it healthier. A simple substitution of white bread in a meatloaf recipe with oats, which is this quaker oats meatloaf, makes it rich in fiber as well as protein. Add a bunch of minced veggies to the mix and use lean turkey or beef meat as a base, and you have an excellent low on calories healthy meal, great for lunch or dinner.
