Have a lean protein salad for lunch daily

Lean protein salads are a key to weight loss. The more vegetables, the better. Remember to add complex carbohydrates that are high in fiber (brown rice, beans, brussel sprouts) to keep your blood sugar level throughout the day. Pair those carbohydrates with healthy fats, such as olive oil, avocado and walnuts, and you’ve got a lean protein salad that can fight afternoon hunger pangs! We suggest you avoid cheese, dried fruit, and creamy dressings.

You may think that eating a big lunch will slow you down in the afternoon. However, not eating enough has its own share of physical, mental and emotional effects as well. Even more important: make sure that you eat lunch! We recommend Prevention magazine’s list of 12 hunger-fighting power salads. You can also look for salads that are part of a paleo diet.

Directions:
Have a salad with salmon or skinless chicken, vegetables, olive oil and balsamic vinegar, avocados, and nuts, perhaps a brown rice tortilla on the side. That’s it. Just say no to croutons, wontons, tortilla strips or any other high fat, high carbohydrate items.
