Delicious and Slimming Lunch Options

Every choice listed below is low in GI, high in natural protein, fibre, low in sugar and starch, rich in Essential fats, vitamins and minerals.  These options are totally satisfying and also have he added bonus of being totally non fat storing.

I am generally against taking Sandwiches at lunchtime.  Likewise, unless Soup is freshly prepared stay well clear.  Eating salads at lunchtime or healthy Wraps is definitely the way forward. Try to take no more than one meal of animal protein per day.

If you decide to take concentrated/animal protein for lunch:

  1. Steamed fresh fish, garnished with ginger, scallions, parsley, and/or fresh coriander.  Fresh vegetable (lightly sautéed if possible) Raw vegetable salad, if desired.
  2. Lightly sautéed fresh shrimps or prawns, with ginger and scallions.  Broccoli and/or cauliflower, lightly steamed, garnished with freshly ground sesame seeds.  Raw salad if desired.
  3. Fresh avocado stuffed with poached shrimps, chopped celery, scallions and/or other vegetable and dressed with olive/lemon.  Piece of steamed or grilled fish

If you decide to take concentrated/animal protein in the evening you can try the salad/vegetable based options for lunch:

  1. Large glass of raw carrot juice.  Large raw vegetable salad, with olive oil/lemon juice.
  2. Large plate of fresh raw sub-acid fruits: grapes, apples, pears, peaches, plums, nectarines (no acid fruits or bananas or dried fruits.  Handful of soaked nuts or seeds.
  3. Brown rice, wild rice or fresh pasta with a vegetable sauce, fresh scallions, parsley and/or other fresh garnishes + steamed or sautéed fresh vegetables.

Wraps are great – Fresh crispy lettuce leaves to wrap all sorts of delicious ingredients, to make wholesome delicious meals that can be eaten on the run.  The lettuce combines well with everything and provides both active enzymes and fibrous bulk.  In Japan, which enjoys the greatest figures of longevity in the world, they eat pressed sheets of dried seaweed instead of lettuce, to wrap poached asparagus, raw lettuce and cabbage, raw fish, bean sprouts, minced onions, tomatoes, avocado, and other wholesome enzyme-rich foods that are both nutritious and delicious.
