3 Easy Fat-Burning Lunches

When it comes time for lunch, you want to keep that metabolism up by choosing ingredients that will help you to keep burning more fat for the rest of the day. These lunches provide a good balance of nutrients that are going to help you stay on track around midday.

Grilled Protein and Veggies

This lunch is simple and has variety options build in! You can make a grilled chicken, tofu, or steak dinner the night before and save leftovers for lunch. Try grilling some chicken or turkey cutlets, slice them up, and put them in individual containers for lunches for the week. You can also try using a rotisserie chicken, or organic low-fat sausages and cut them for your protein. Choose your favorite veggies for this healthy lunch. During summer months, try warm-weather veggies like corn, squash, and zucchini, or you can add a southwestern flair by adding in some bell peppers, black beans, corn, and tomatoes. There is really a lot of room for customization with this type of healthy, fat burning lunch.

The Wrap

Although the humble wrap may be seen as “boring”, think of it as a blank slate to create with. Experimenting with various healthy additions, such as avocado, hummus, cranberry sauce, sauerkraut, pesto, or a variety of healthy meats or cheeses can give your wrap some pop! Depending on your eating style, the wrap can be changed out for lettuce wrap, rice wrap, or a gluten-free tortilla. Be sure you check the wrap nutrition facts, because sometimes a heavily processed flour tortilla will not be diet-friendly.

Quinoa Salad

Here is another healthy and delicious lunch that is light enough for a quick lunch, but is also filling. Quinoa is a type of grain that contains a lot of protein and iron, plus can be combined with just about anything. You can have just quinoa and chopped veggies, add in some lean protein, or top a bed of lettuce and veggies with the cooked quinoa. It is very versatile with a mild nutty flavor that goes great with a lot of other seasonings and herbs. Plus, as a whole grain, quinoa and the veggies you mix it with are going to be perfect for burning more fat. If you make quinoa for dinner and have some leftover, add it to a container to use for a lunch later in the week.
