Hey all, sorry for my relative absence last week, I know we’re behind by a couple posts, but let’s start this week off strong with a nice, low-calorie, super-healthy lunch idea!
6 oz. Broccoli Slaw (you can find this in the pre-packaged salad section of the supermarket – I usually use Dole brand)
1/4 cup Sliced Almonds
2 tbsp. Wheat Germ
2 tbsp. Salad Dressing (optional)
Combine slaw, almonds, and wheat germ into a bowl or tupperware container. Shake or stir vigorously. Add dressing if desired (I personally prefer an asian-style dressing), shake and/or stir again. If you’re packing this for a lunch or something, I recommend not mixing the dressing in until right before you’re going to eat it, so stuff doesn’t get all soggy.
Protein: 10 g
Carbs: 15 g
(doesn’t include macros from dressing)
This is a great addition to any meal, or a good small meal itself! The crunchy texture is fantastic, and the fats and protein in the nuts and wheat germ help you feel nice and sated, despite the small caloric load. Since I’m currently looking to cut weight, this one has been a staple in my lunches at work. Quick and easy to prepare, and leaves me feeling full every time!
I’ll see you again on Wednesday for the Champion Spotlight we should have had last week. Champions Guild members will be getting a preview of that and the accompanying workout before they go live, so make sure to join up if you haven’t already! Until then, remember to live boldly, change the world, and continue to be awesome!
