Make good lunches: Lunch is a time of temptation, and many of us are in too much of a hurry to make great choices. A good lunch is lean proteins such as fish, turkey or chicken, prepared with little fat, with vegetables. Or in a salad. Another good choice is a black bean or quinoa salad with added vegetables, or almond butter with fruit. Salads are healthful when high-fat additions such as cheese and oil are limited.

See below: I will tell you what i do. I make a healthy salad with plenty of greens, brightly colored veggies, some nuts (unsalted), perhaps some tofu or occasionally some turkey or salmon to put on the salad and a dressing that is not high in sugar. I will usually also have a piece of fruit. I tend to stay away from breads, fried foods, chips etc.
