healthy lunch

Beat the temptation to grab a fattening snack from the vending machine or order an instant take-away meal by packing a nutritious and slimming lunch box.

Here are a few healthy lunches and snacks that will keep you energised and help you meet your weight loss goals:

  1. Use high-fibre seeded or rye bread instead of white bread
  2. Spread slices of bread with low-fat hummus or cottage cheese instead of cream cheese or mayonnaise
  3. Flavour low-fat plain yoghurt with honey and/or chopped fruit instead of eating artificially flavoured yoghurt
  4. Pack fresh home-made popcorn instead of crisps
  5. Fresh fruits and slices of cucumber, carrot, whole cocktail tomatoes and celery sticks make great snacks
  6. Bake low-fat health muffins for office parties, rather than eating pastries, biscuits or cake
  7. Unsulfured dried fruit/raisins, raw nuts/seeds, and biltong are fuss-free substitutes for unhealthy snacks
