In the previous article, we talked about breakfast nutrition. Today, let’s talk about lunch and what to eat for lunch.
Lunch should comprise of lean proteins and high-fiber starchy carbohydrates. Lean proteins are proteins with less than 10 grams of total fat.
The science behind this recommendations is, carbohydrate-rich food delivers continuous energy and we do not feel sleepy post lunch. Avoid sugary white foods. There is a huge difference between starchy, carbohydrate food and sugary food.
Diet options: A small portion of rice, whole wheat, barley, spiced nuts, spiced seeds, popcorn.
Note for readers: People generally crave salty food in the afternoon.
