Eating healthy lunches will greatly benefit your day!! Many of us have heard the saying – “Eat Breakfast like a King, Lunch like a Prince and Supper like a Pauper”. There is nothing wrong in this saying if you totally agree to it what it has to say. For me it is a bit twisted says Steven Mark Olschwanger.
If breakfast is the usual meal we like to skip every day, then lunch is the most unavoidable meal of the day. But there are few who skip lunch due to some reasons. According to Steven, this is not a good habit. Breakfast is indeed the most important meal of the day, but it should not be greeted bountifully. Many will argue that we have to eat more during breakfast. Fine, but this destroys your digestive system. And most Nutritionists will suggest having a simple meal of bread or oats with a milk or coffee for breakfast. That is why they say so.
Mornings are hectic, but should not be loaded. During the morning hours, we are running about fixing meals and heading off to school/work, but it is not loaded as the afternoons. Lunch is the most important meal for me only because of this reason. Because, just after the morning snacks, taking a heavy and healthy lunch builds up your momentum and I am sure you don’t want the train to leave you!
Eating lunch is important but more than that having healthy and good lunches are also important. Eating a good and healthy lunch gives you the energy to stay alert and helps you to focus on the things you need to complete before the day ends. Some of the tips for building a healthy lunch given by Steven are
- Avoid foods that are rich in carbohydrates because adding carbohydrates in your diet will make you sleep than to keep alert.
- Eat the right food at the right time.
- Avoid energy juices and sodas.
- Make sure that your lunch consists of more fruits and vegetables.
- You can also include grapes, nectarines, apples and pears in your lunch.
- Think simple. A loaf of whole wheat bread and a bowl of peanut butter and some tomatoes can make your lunch healthy.
- Drink at least six to eight cups of clean water each day.
Follow the tips so that you can “Eat Healthy, Be Healthy”.
