What Are You Having For Lunch?
Sometimes it can be challenging to come up with low carb ideas for lunch, so what are you having for lunch?
Please feel free to share a picture if you would like to do so!
Premier Protein (Caramel)
Good grief, I gotta get out of this lazy stage.
I just grabbed a Premier Protein shake for lunch. (3 net carbs)
Although it isn't pretty (no picture of it) one of my favorite lunches (and what I had today) has become almost a comfort food for me.
4 oz Chunk White Chicken Canned (Sweet Sue)
2 Hard Boiled Eggs (Chopped)
1 Simply Pickles Kosher Dill Spears (Chopped)
2 TBLS Hellmanns Mayonaise
It has very few (if any carbs) and I really enjoy it. Sometimes I eat it over a bed of salad, but today, I ate it as is.
My Own Blended Protein Shake
Every now and then, especially when I am busy, I like to mix up my own blended protein shake.
It makes me feel full so that I can get by until dinner without needing to add extra snacks, etc.
2 Cups Unsweetened coconut/almond milk blend.
1 Scoop Protein Powder. (I use Body Fortress 100% Protein Isolate - 2 net carbs)
1 teaspoon Instant coffee.
2 tbsp PB2 powdered peanut butter.
I usually add a dash of granulated Splenda and cinnamon.
Smoked turkey sandwich: 3 slices of deli meat folded over a slice of smoked gouda cheese. That's all - very good and filling. If I had wanted to go to more trouble, I'd have spread the inside with mayo and put in a leaf of lettuce. But was being lazy today.
I've tried those Premier Shakes, tasted good but it spiked my BG. I do fine with Quest brand though.
Today for lunch I had a lettuce wrap(romaine) with homemade Caesar dressing, tuna, cheese, a couple olives and some hemp hearts and two small pickles.
lettuce carrot purple cabbage salad
lettuce, green pepper, radish, onion, mushroom
can tuna fish
1/4 cup shredded cheddar
sprinkle of parmesian
I usually only use dressing when the lettuce/salad fixings are getting a little old.
Green salad with 2 tbsps of Ranch dressing
1 tbsp. of sliced almonds
3 chicken tenderloins pan-fried in coconut oil (night before)
squash zucchini noodles simmered with tenderloins
1/4 cup of tomato sauce added to simmer
That sounds delicious, alamogirl
