You may have heard that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. While this is true because it sets the tone for your eating habits for the rest of the day, it’s important to not to overlook lunch! Lunch plays plays a crucial role because it provides you with the energy you need to get through the rest of the day. You’ll only be able to maximize the benefits of lunch if you eat a healthy one though. Here are some ways you can eat healthier lunches.
Try New Things
It’s easy to get stuck in the habit of eating the foods we’re used to. After all, they’re our favorites for a reason! However, if the foods you are used to are unhealthy you won’t benefit from eating them. Trying new foods can be fun and improve your health overall. Look online for unfamiliar recipes and keep an open mind. You don’t have to completely abandon your favorite foods to try new ones.
Add Healthy Foods You Already Like
Chances are, you already like some healthy foods. You can include these foods into your lunches gradually to make them healthier. For example, if you like oranges you may want to pack one in your lunch instead of a sweet, unhealthy treat. Gradually introducing more and more healthy foods into your lunches will make the switch to healthy eating more sustainable. Don’t expect to change your eating habits overnight.
Try Other Preparations
For just about any food, there are several different ways you can make it. Often, these methods range in healthiness. An example of this is chicken, which can be baked, fried, or prepared in other ways. If you’re a person who enjoys eating fried chicken, consider switching to baked chicken for some lunches. Doing this will provide you with all the protein you’re used to without the negative effects of eating fried foods.
