Lunch is one of the most important meals of the day. Having a good balance of the different food groups that provide our bodies with the nutrients we need and that fuel us with energy for the rest of the day is not always an easy task.
The golden rule for lunch is to not skip or postpone it. It is best to have a specific time to eat lunch every day, and try to eat five meals a day while conserving the same general amount of time between them.
One of the errors that people tend to run into when taking their lunch to work is to exceed in the amount of carbohydrates and fats they eat in an attempt to satisfy their hunger. Potatoes, rice, and other starches, tend to fill up the main part of our lunches. When we go overboard on our serving sizes, we run into the consequence that we most dread during our work day: that feeling of sleepiness that prevents us from working at our best.
Including a serving of vegetables, a serving of proteins (between 100 and 150 grams) and a small serving of starches or carbohydrates are essential parts of planning for our lunches. These foods are usually not found in traditional homemade meals. Many different, delicious and healthy foods can be made, that above all, are easy to prepare and take with you, as we show in this video that is perfect for those who want to revitalize their lunches.
