A friend of mine recently went to the doctor and found out her actual weight. After the number was revealed to her, she was not pleased (to say the least), so she asked me for advice on how she could shed the pounds. Well after she asked, I not only told her, but I showed her that having a good, healthy meal doesn't have to be such a drag.
On that particular day, I brought a Lean Cuisine meal for lunch. It was a selection from their new Market Creations line. One thing I like about their new line is that the portions seem to be just a tad bit more from their normal boxed dinners. Well, for this meal I had Spicy Ginger Chicken. The entire entree alone was only 270 calories. Well I microwave it for 7 minutes and before it was done, it had the entire side of the hall smelling some kind of good.
Anyway, as I walked back to my desk, I stopped off at hers to show her what a 270 calorie meal looked like and she couldn't believe it! In addition to that, I had a 100 calorie Hostess pack for a snack. I gave her one of the 3 little treats in the pack and she couldn't believe how good it tasted. That right there motivated her to make a greater effort to shedding the pounds.
So it just goes to show you that a good meal with dessert doesn't have to be fattening and tasteless. It can actually be quite good!
What is your favorite low-fat lunch? How do you make sure that your meals aren't too fattening?
