Add In Your Lunches
(Trim Healthy Mama For Beginners)

So far you have been adding in your breakfast, snacks and drinks to the Trim Healthy Mama plan. Today it is time to add your lunches.

For many people this can be a tricky meal to get right. It is usually a lighter meal and may of us rely on foods like sandwiches, soups or jacket potatoes for lunch. On Trim Healthy Mama it can be exactly the same, just with a bit more care over fuels and timing for changing fuels.

In our house we tend to have eggs for breakfast which is an S. This is filling and keeps us going and we like having a warm breakfast. We then have a snack a couple of hours later and try to keep this to a FP. At lunchtime we usually swap to an E meal by having sandwiches made with rye bread. There are sourdough breads that are on plan too but we prefer the rye bread, you just have to find out what works for you and make sure it is on plan. We then have fruit or greek yoghurt after our sandwich to keep us in E mode and to give us lots of energy for the rest of the day. This isn’t our plan every day, but most days it is our go to.

You just have to find what works for you. Think about what you found when you wrote your meal plan out, what did you most eat for lunch and how did you convert it to be on plan? Do you prefer soup, sandwiches or something else?

Another easy answer for lunch is to eat leftovers from the night before or earlier in the week. This can be really helpful if you work and need something filling that you can grab and take with you. It is also great for men as it tends to be a bigger portion.

So today, see what you put on your menu plan and see what works for you and then start to add in your lunches.

You’re nearly there now!!
