I'm a firm believer in habit building and a great habit to work on is eating more foods your prepared yourself! It can feel complicated if you're starting out, so here's a great formula to follow that will ease you into this habit!
Pick Your Protein: Choose lean meats and fish including chicken, eggs, ham, turkey, tuna, flank steak, shrimp, black beans, cheese, peanut butter, etc...
Pack on the Veggies Your options are endless! Pick your favourites and pack a small portion of dressing or hummus to go with it if you like.
Add Some Fruit Add a little sweet to your lunch. Select some of your favourites – again, your options are endless here.
Always Something Extra: To help you feel satisfied, be sure to add something you love that’s filling. Try a carb like crackers, chickpeas or a dairy like greek yogurt or even a little piece of chocolate.
Use this formula as something to start with to build your habit of packing your lunch for work or eating better at home.
