I love lunch! I have a big family, so other meals are centered around what I can get everyone to eat, what's reasonable in price, and can be made in an hour or less. But for lunch, I get to eat MY favorite stuff, which VERY often is a salad. Almost always has cubed cooked chicken in it. I have 300 calories allotted for lunch.
My base is romaine and artisan lettuce
Sometimes, I use precut coleslae and mix asian dressing with fat free mayo and a tiny bit of soy sauce and add bean sprouts, green olives, chicken and mandarin oranges.
With the romaine and greens I also make
• chicken / feta / apple. The dressing is 1T light mayo, 1T honey mustard (not honey mustard dressing) and 1 T cider vinegar
• spicy chicken taco - chicken, 1/2 serving crumbled tortilla chips, tomato, green onion and Brianna's Chipotle Cheddar dressing
• Raspberry Walnut with blue cheese - chicken (again LOL), blue cheese crumbles, red onion light raspberry walnut dressing
I use a ton of greens (like 4 cups) and these salads keep my veggie count up, are filling and delicious (to me, I know some ppl don't like salad)
I also like cooked cubed chicken breast sprinkled with chipotle seasoning mixed with jasmine rice and spicy black beans (good fiber in this one)
Another thing I love is 1 serving of whole wheat pasta dressing with thinned peanut butter mixed with a little soy sauce and asian garlic chili sauce for quick Thai peanut noodles. You only need about 1 T peanut butter for this. Comfort food for me without going overboard on calories.
Just some ideas for ya~
