What’s for lunch?

At a recent weight loss support group meeting, I asked members what kind of nutritious, yummy, and low-cal foods they eat for lunch. Many of us get sick of eating the same old thing everyday, so it’s good to change things up once in a while.  We got LOTS of great ideas from each other, and many members took notes and went out grocery shopping right after the meeting.  Here were some of their ideas:

  • Garden veggie patties on a whole wheat bun
  • Spinach salad with chicken and salsa
  • Corn tortillas with egg whites and bell peppers.
  • Oatmeal with banana
  • Kashi crunchy cereal
  • Scrambled egg and tomato
  • Baked tostada shells with black beans and salsa
  • Pita with tuna or other meat, low fat Italian dressing, muenster cheese or hummus
  • Wrap with whole grain tortilla, fake crabmeat and spinach
  • Black bean soup recipe from Eating Well magazine
  • Baked potato with salsa
  • 1/2 can black eyed peas, pico de gallo, and lime juice
  • Muesli
  • Greek yogurt, black beans, and salsa
  • Salad with jicama, almonds, cranberries, vinegar and oil
  • Sushi or spring rolls with tofu
  • Fruit, salad, hummus
  • Boco burgers – 100 cal, 10g protein
  • Tomato or banana sandwich
  • Lentils
  • Green chutney and cucumbers or tomatos on bread
  • Turkey sandwich on wheat, baked lays, and MILK.

Have other ideas for a yummy and nutritious lunch? We would love to hear your ideas!
