When you think of some delicious healthy lunches, you probably find a picture of a bland sandwich or a dull salad. But healthy doesn’t always mean bitter taste. Tasty lunches can be delightful which can be a good way to lose weight. Here we are suggesting some healthy as well as delicious mid-day meal items that fit with your goals or less calorie intake.

A registered dietitian Traci Fields said, “It’s a lot easier to grab something quick. Just know that you could be depriving yourself of the nutrients you need when you do that, which will probably leave you feeling extra hungry in the afternoon and evening.”

Fields also emphasize taking adequate-protein, non-starchy vegetables, and healthy fats. She said, “You cannot spot-burn fat. Burning fat occurs with exercise and the type of diet consumed.”

As lunchtime is the busiest time for most people, it is convenient to eat something small that is not very filling. It is always wise to skip a heavy tempting meal that can create obstacles to move through the day. But the good news is there are plenty of substitutions and alternatives that you can choose a healthier option.
