Top 5 Lunches for Fat Loss (GREAT FOR WORK!!)
Hi, everyone! I'm trainer Amy Jo, with ATHLEANXX for Women.
Today we're discussing lunchtime.
The lunchtime hour.
We all get busy at work and if you forgotyour meals at home – which you should have prepared, correct? What do you do? What do you do in a jam? So one of my favorites, number one, is usingsome hummus and canned chicken, or canned tuna, or even the tuna packets you can tearoff.
Literally using the hummus as your "mayo",so to speak, and you can even add onions if you want, but these are things you could goto the store, grab, all you need is a bowl and a fork and you could whip that stuff together.
Add a piece of fruit on the side and thereyou go.
But that's a great way to replace mayo, isusing hummus if you want to make a chicken salad sandwich, or a tuna salad.
It's a great one.
Number two is a wrap.
Using wraps is a great way to still be workingwhile you're eating and it doesn't create such a mess.
It's not a bowl of rice and chicken, but youcan do that as well.
Head on over to the store, pick up a packetof corn tortillas, or whole wheat tortillas, and turkey, some deli slices, turkey and cheese,lettuce, and throw it all together.
There you go.
You have your lunch sandwich.
The other one is salads with boiled eggs.
We probably get sick of doing chicken saladall the time, turkey salad all the time.
Boiled eggs is a great way to up your protein,also get some healthy fats in there, but add some flavor to the salad.
So you're getting that fat from the egg yolk,and you mush it all together within your lettuce and it actually tastes pretty good.
You can add some oil and vinegar as well tothat.
but that's a quick, easy way to run to thestore, once again, grab those few items, and head back to work.
The other one, number four, is canned beans,chicken, and you can make a pre-made canned bean chicken using the oil, or the sauce thatkind of is in the black bean.
So once you dip it out, you dump it into thebowl – some of the sauce that comes from the beans – it will kind of absorb intothe chicken as well, and that's a great one to add.
It has a lot of flavor.
Throw in a bag of some already pre-made lettuce,or some kale, and there you have a nice, little Mexican lunch.
Number five is my all-time go-to when I donot have any time.
It's literally cut up veggies and the littlepackets of guacamole and then a string cheese on the side.
So at the grocery store they already havecut up fruit, they've got cut up carrots, and celery, and cucumbers in a box.
Just grab those from the deli.
Get a packet of guacamole and some stringcheese and you are on your way.
So that's one of my favorite ones when I literallyhave about five to ten minutes to eat lunch.
Grab that and bring that with you.
So all of these are great ideas, even justto have at home, but if you are in a jam and you didn't bring your lunch with you for theday you could literally head on over the grocery store and pick these items up, rather thangoing to your fast food, or another place that might cost you $10 to $15 just for asalad, when you could have gotten it for about $5.
So, hopefully these ideas helped you.
These will definitely keep you on track foryour fat loss goals.
They're convenient, they're healthy, and they'reeasy to slam in.
