Greens and protein: 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.

Ask a dietitian.: The best person to consult in this regard would be a Registered Dietitian. RDs have years of education about food,nutrition, food science and such. An RD can help you well with food choices and meal planning for optimal health and wellness. They can also take into account medical issues. www.eatright.org.
