What's a Healthy Lunch?
Hey Kids, are you tired and cranky in the afternoon? Do you have trouble staying awake in your afternoon classes? Believe it or not, it could be what you ate for lunch.
If you routinely lunch on simple carbohydrates like French fries, soda and fast food, then look out, you may feel like snoozing the afternoon away. Plus, that kind of food really packs on the pounds.
Give your body the fuel it needs for lunch. Eat complex carbs like whole grain bread, brown rice or pasta. Healthy proteins like lean meat or fish. Fresh dairy products like skim milk, low-fat yogurt and unprocessed cheese. And make sure you include a variety of colorful fruits and vegetables.
Remember you are what you eat!
