Have you ever wondered how to incorporate into lunches for work into your daily routine? Well if you don’t want to spend a fortune in low carb or vegetarian restaurants, but still want to enjoy the full benefits of a healthy diet, here are some ideas to help you.
Lunch at your office may be a simple low carb lunch. Here are some things you can add to these low carb lunches to make them even more delicious.
If you do have to eat lunch at your office, try making your own homemade breads and muffins. By doing this, you can have the taste of bread that is not loaded with butter and lots of cheese and other things you don’t need.
You can find a wide range of nutritious protein snacks to take along. You can even find k-cups that are low in fat and calories so they can even be considered low carb!
Keto doesn’t mean you have to give up your favorite junk food! Even if it’s still calorie laden, you can still enjoy the fruit part of it by making your own fruit smoothies. With a little time and some nice flavors, you can still have the benefits of fruit and still enjoy some of your favorite foods.
For those that love ice cream, try making your own to take with you to work. Making your own ice cream will save you the trouble of going to the store and then standing around in the frozen section while the store sells frozen ice cream!
It’s so much easier to enjoy some of your favorite low carb foods, like mashed potatoes and meats, when you have them at home. The trick is to use a microwave safe bowlto do this at home instead of the ones you usually use in the store.
A bagel, some sliced turkey and milk is a quick and easy lunch for your family on the go. You can find low carb bagels in the store but don’t settle for the same boring old bagels.
Make your own low carb muffins and enjoy the great taste of fresh fruit inside. You can also add nuts and veggies in between the muffin tops.
Another snack that won’t ruin your low carb diet is low carb sausage and bacon. They are great for breakfast, lunch or dinner.
You can get your bacon and sausage either with the skin on or the meatless variety. They are low in fat and calories, so you can have your lunch and then some with just a few slices of low carb ham and a cup of low carb coffee.
