Eggs should be included as part of a varied and balanced diet. They are filling and can be enjoyed any time of the day, they have a high protein content which helps us to feel fuller for longer. They are so versatile take a look at some of the suggestions of how you could have your eggs – morning / noon or night!
Jacket (or Baked) Potato!
A jacket (or baked) potato is sometimes all that is needed for a lunch that will satisfy & keep you feeling full all afternoon. A crisp baked skin & fluffy interior provides a good source of fibre & has more potassium than a banana! With so many fillings to accompany this healthy food a good ‘go to’ substantial lunch is so easy to put together.
A salad doesn’t have to be ‘plain & boring’ – it should be something that you enjoy which will ignite your taste buds & keep you satisfied all afternoon. If time is precious a pre-packed salad is fine by adding protein via chicken / meat / dairy / pulses you will be ensuring you eat a balanced nutritional meal. A handful of nuts / seeds is also great way of helping you get extra fibre into your diet.
Something on Toast
There is something very satisfying about having ‘Something on Toast’ – whether it’s baked beans, egg, tomatoes or mushrooms the options are wide & varied – when time permits & you fancy something a little more extravagant & especially if in season, try some of these ideas; perhaps adapt the idea / recipe to your taste (I would love to know what you do)!
