"No Bread" lunch ideas: One for every day of the week!
Need some inspiration on how to cut down on bread? It's a very easy habit to find yourself reaching for bread at meals throughout the day. Sometimes it's just too easy, fills you up and ticks the box... but a diet high in poor quality, energy dense carbohydrates is not good for your health and let's face it, it's definitely not good for your waistline! So I have put together five nutritious and simple to prepare "no bread" lunch ideas ....... one for every day of the week!
Eggs are a wonderfully easy meal. Packed with protein, great fats and a great balance of minerals and vitamins, eggs make a perfect meal that will keep blood sugar stable and you feeling fuller longer.
Most of us are at our busiest time of the day at lunchtime - we've done a mornings work and have a full afternoon ahead of us... perfect time to fuel your body well and have a good healthy meal! I often recommend to clients to make an extra portion of last nights dinner for lunch the next day and here's a wonderfully easy evening meal to do exactly that.
Try quinoa! ... A lot of people have said to me they have tried quinoa and it ended up a big mushy mess. My tip in cooking quinoa is toast it first on a dry pan for only a couple of minutes, tossing/sharking pan regularly (avoid burning it) and they boil in 1 cup quinoa to 1 1/2 to 2 cups water. The packets tell you to use 5 cups of water which I think creates the "mush". Quinoa is a great protein packed addition to salads, soups or main meals.
