Mondays Lunch

If you are anything like me, lunch time is my down fall. It didn’t used to be so bad as I would generally just skip lunch. No problem. But lately I find myself starving, wandering the grocery aisle looking for something to eat for lunch. If only I had prepared my lunch at home! I would lament. When you are hungry the simple thing to reach for is processed food with a ton of carbs. And that just won’t do.

So this week in my attempt to try something new I am making low gi and interesting lunches. There are a plethora of blogs that cover this topic, so feel free to look here, here and here.

My  rules are: it must fit in my bento box, it must take no longer than 15 minutes to make, and include low carb whole foods.

Mondays Lunch:

Turkey sandwich with chipotle/tomato cheese spread, lettuce, and tomato (I am still breast feeding so a little bit of carbs is good for me)

Dates stuffed with goat cheese and wrapped in basil

Strawberries

Celery, carrots and hummus

Shopping List

Deli Turkey

Laughing Cow chipotle cheese

lettuce

tomato

sprouted bread

(from Marks Daily Apple: One study found that eating sprouted grain breads (not Ezekiel, but similar to it) reduced the blood sugar response and increases the glucagon response when compared to eating unsprouted breads, 11-grain, 12-grain, white, or sourdough. That’s pretty good… for a bread. But it’s still bread. I’d like to see it matched up against a lack of bread)

Strawberries

dates

goat cheese (A shout out to our local goat cheese maker)

basil

carrots

celery

hummus (can be made at home easily….but I bought mine)

Hopefully this helps you out and gives you a great start to the week too!
