Did you know that the working woman eats about 100,000 calories extra per year, or an average of 2,240 calories per week of EXTRA calories. These extra calories could equate to around 28 pounds of weight gain PER YEAR. If you think about it, those are staggering numbers. Not surprisingly, sources of extra calories often include snacks, treats brought into the office, and eating lunch out.
Meal prepping your lunch is one way to ensure that you have a healthy filling lunch every single day of the week. A more filling and exciting meal means you’re less likely to reach for office treats, vending machines snacks, or hit up the drive-thru with a coworker. So, we thought today would be a good time to share how to meal prep a filling lunch that will keep you full!
As a dietitian, I often find that when my clients pack lunches, they skimp on their meal trying to be “healthy.” They usually pack a super dull meal that they don’t look forward too, so they would rather go out even though they have healthy lunch. That’s why we design What to Eat? Meal Plans to be both filling and not boring! We also analyze each recipe and meal to make sure you are getting enough protein, healthy fat, veggies, and starch at every meal, including lunch! These meal components help keep you satisfied and better able to fight your sugar cravings!
