Pre-Blimpy Girl, I would tend to skip lunch. Not for any particular reason other than I would get busy working, running errands and not take the time to stop and eat. Not any more. Just like breakfast, eating lunch is part of keeping my metabolism running to burn fat and provide energy.
I have several staple lunch items that I can prepare in less than 10 minutes. I also have some snazzier lunch meals that are still EZ but take a few more ingredients and prep time. I share both on this blog.
There are staple items I have on hand at all times. These include low fat muffins and “Slimwiches”, thinly sliced deli ham or turkey, low-fat cheese slices, no-fat mayo, canned tuna, cottage cheese and salad fixings. I also stock a variety of low fat salad dressings. Even on the fly you can prepare a simple sandwich and salad.
