Healthy lunch recipes start with getting away from burgers and fries, pizzas laden with cheese, and processed foods.
We personally recommend (and eat) a big salad almost everyday for lunch, but must admit that adding some other healthy recipes do add variety to the noon day meal.
Here is a suggestion for you. Sandwiches and a cup of soup can also be very delicious and satisfying for a lunch break or at the end of a long day, especially if the soup is already made and the sandwich ingredients are ready to use without a lot of preparation.
It is important to get organized to make these dietary changes work. Getting and staying healthy is not a temporary diet change...instead, it is a lifestyle change.
To make each day more enjoyable, try getting up a little earlier and do a little preparation so that the lunch or the evening meal is not so time consuming.
If you make an effort to take the time to prepare for your healthy meals, you will be less apt to stop and get unhealthy fast food when your days are packed with work, endless errands and activities.
