Lunch. It’s the meal that’s most likely to happen when you’re out of the house. When you’re adapting to a new eating style, it can be difficult to think about what you can take to work, or get when on the go. It can certainly be a challenge to consider all options, because we’re used to having carb-heavy options everywhere.
That said, some of the best choices are right under our noses, but may form an something we’re not used to.
Or cold meats, depending on where you’re from. Specifically I’m talking about shaved ham, chicken, turkey, or salami. They’re affordable, delicious, and right there you have at least four varieties of meat. They keep form well, too, so if you need to be on the go and they’re not refrigerated for a few hours, it’s not a big deal (unless you’re in an extremely warm place).
I can say the same for cheese. There’s more varieties of cheese available than most foods, fetta, brie, camembert, gorgonzola, bleu, to name a few, and almost all of them are delicious (I’m not a huge fan of blue myself). Most cheese has equal, or greater, grams of fat, than protein, so it helps to balance the macros out
This is what I had for lunch today, and have been doing variations for here and there.
It’s also has an incredible macro breakdown, particularly for an ad hoc meal.
So next time you’re pondering lunch, think about what’s around you that you might not otherwise piece together,
By not having breakfast, but more on skipping breakfast in future.
