Healthy Lunch Tip

Who says that a quick-lunch cannot be healthy?  Look at my colorful plate!!!

What’s on the plate?  LO’s!  Leftovers.

A leftover grilled plain sweet potato.  High in potassium, about 448 mg, low in calories, 1 cup, about 114 calories, low in sugar, 6 mg, and considered a healthier carb.

Leftover grilled bourbon and brown sugar flavored chicken breast. The chicken breast is lean, but the bourbon & brown sugar seasoning, made it a little less.  In moderation, it’s okay.

A ginormous hand full of UNCOOKED USDA Certified Organic  50/50 Mix of baby spinach & spring mix blend. If you keep baby spinach or a blend of green veggies like this on hand, you’ll never have to stress over the unavailability of cooked veggies.  Tossing them in the microwave for two minutes with a little pan drippings is perfect.

Everything on the plate was taken directly from the fridge.  I simply heated the plate two minutes in the microwave.  After the two minutes, I tried not to wolf it down too quickly, but it was good and…. HEALTHY!

Remember, your food choices should compliment your fitness regimen.  For the best results, they must work together.

After B’Dazzle’s one hour-long football conditioning camp, I could have eaten out. But, dining out usually mean less healthier food choices.  I knew I had a bunch of leftovers in the fridge, so I made the smarter choice.

If you’re seeking a healthier lifestyle, remember the choice is all yours.

I’m out back coolin it at the pool with B’Dazzle.  It is raining and he is in the pool!  He’s already wet, so why let the rain spoil our afternoon.  Kids love to play in the rain.  So do I!

Enjoy the day!   Smooches!
