I have been trying to moderate my carbs and eat healthy lunches packed with protein and some healthy fat. Salads have been an obvious choice but now the weather has turned colder I'm struggling to find inspiration for what to eat? My office doesn't really have cooking facilities - we have a microwave and a kettle but that's about it. Can anyone give me some lovely lunch ideas?
I found low carb much easier to do once I let go of the idea of "meals" - so many are based around carbs like pasta, pastry, noodles, rice. Instead, I am now happy to eat a delicious selection of non-carby foods without feeling like I've missed out on anything. For instance, a handful of cherry tomatoes, some nice cheese, some celery dipped into a cream cheese based dip, olives, some lettuce leaves to wrap around stuff, cold meats, some strawberries and a bowl of greek yoghurt. Filling, low carb and totally doable in an office. I often go to the supermarket at lunchtime on a Monday and stock the work fridge with yummy things to last me all week.
