Nourishing Lunches

For lunch, I honestly flip flop whatever I didn’t have for breakfast or my morning snacks. My favorite go-to items for a fast lunch are things I can mix with a can of tuna,  scramble with eggs, or throw in salad. I do have the luxury of coming home everyday for lunch, even with school in the picture now, but 30 (or 35ish) minutes is only so long.

If you didn’t get a quality breakfast in, lunch is the second chance you need to get it right. You’ve probably got most of your day still a head of you and you’ll need fuel! If you have an event later that night and you think you should skimp on your meals leading up to that, you’re wrong. I’ve been guilty of that, and I still consider it, but without a solid lunch you’re going to be sorry. I don’t know about you, but people lose patience with me when I’m tired, hungry, and irritable. Feel your alter ego to keep these symptoms at bay.

Make protein ahead of time and warm up later in the week to top a salad.

 I do love quinoa and avocados. It’s not like they taste like much but they  just mash together really well and add bulk to whatever you mix them with. Just between the two of them, you’ve got all three of your macronutrients!

Please check back for more ideas! I will update soon. I can eat the same thing for days, so it takes me awhile to branch out.
