I start to work in a new company in April, as we have luncheon voucher my co-worker and i always went to take lunch or dinner outside (i’m the only girl of the team so they always choose restaurant with a lot of meat and carbs…). So i put on about 5 kilos. As we are TTC, i’ve decide to bring my lunch and skip restaurant.
Today i bring what we call in France “american salad” : rice, veggies, tuna + two apple and a fish sandwich
What do you eat to be healthy? give me so ideas of meal i can bring to work.

For me, I’ve found that the more variety I have in my diet, the better I feel (and the easier it is to eat healthy). On an average day, I bring:
- carrots, cucumber and snap peas
- two types of fruit
- rice crackers and cheese
- TONS of water
- green tea for metabolism/increased CM
Also, I keep almonds in my desk, and agree with PP – hard boiled eggs are a great source of quick protein.

@Mrsluckywife: , @redsmarties: i never bring little snacks like almond but i think it can be a real good idea since i’m kind of really hungry at 5PM and when i come back to my home i’m running into the kitchen to eat.

Rather than eating an actual lunch, I’ve been trying to keep things in the office that I can graze on throughout the day. Since getting pregnant, I feel awful after eating a big meal no matter what it is. So I try to have plain greek yogurt (with walnuts, honey, or granola to mix in), apples, bananas, mixed nuts, hummus, cheese slices and crackers, etc. around so I can snack.

For breakfast, I eat eggs or yogurt, a piece of toast or a small muffin, and a cup of tea (I’m not cutting caffeine completely until I know I’m preggo).
For morning snack, I have a piece of fruit.
For lunch, I have either a homemade burrito or a sandwich, two pieces of fruit, either diet soda/Crystal light, and sometimes a brownie or a cookie. Sometimes I go get baked potato wedges from the hospital across the street
For dinner, I have a grain serving (pasta or potatoes), a meat serving (chicken or beef), two vegetables (frozen veggies and a salad), and sometimes a little ice cream.
I try to drink about 6 cups of water a day. Sometimes I make it, sometimes I don’t. I try not to stress about my food intake – stress makes you gain weight!

@parisian_bee: Yes good plan! 🙂 Another good idea is healthy crackers, I like some called ‘Dr Karg’ which come in different flavours and some of them are made from spelt and have seeds on. Also you can snack on a few pieces of dried fruit for an energy boost, which stores easier than fresh fruit.
