SUGAR & FLOUR FREE LIFE: LUNCH INSPIRATION

Continuing this fun series of a peak into my favorite meals, we’re onto lunch! Now, I’m not going to lie to you guys. I’m a total bore when it comes to lunch. I usually have one of three things: salad, soup, or a “market plate” from these new healthy fast food places.

I eat lunch everyday around noon-1pm, keep it light so I don’t have to go back to work feeling full and exhausted. And while there are a TON of take out options (especially in NYC) I try to only take out on occasion; usually Mondays when coming back from traveling or Fridays before the weekend!

No Hassle Equation: 1 Protein + Unlimited Vegetables + 1 Carb OR 1 Higher Fat item.
