Topic: Healthy meal choices?
June 19, 2019 / By Annabella Question:
Ok so what would be a healthy meal choice for lunch. I'm trying to build up my body. I never eat breakfast except Sunday cause I never have enough time. But what is a good thing to eat for lunch at school? I'm 13 and wanna loose fat. I'm about 140 pounds and 5' 10'. I usually buy lunch at school which is whatever is the days special, but they have alternatives everyday like sandwiches and salad. If salad, then what dressings? And what are good snack choices?? Please help.

Ideal weight, what to eat, how to eat, food nutrition tables.
If you measured correctly, you are extremely tall for your age and not overweight unless built like a rail or matchstick in muscle and bone structure with a lot of fat around it.
You are supposed to eat breakfast because it improves your ability to learn and actually raises your metabolism so overweight people skip breakfast.
Salads are good, and it is more the amount of dressing than the type. Use as little as possible and still enjoy the salad. Snacks should be fruit. Apples, pears, bananas, oranges, etc. Bread for sandwich whole wheat of they offer it. Drink water if possible instead of soda, or at least mix juices and water instead of sugar-water drinks usually offered.

Breakfast in the winter I'm down with oatmeal. In a time crunch I just do the quick oats, some brown sugar, raisins/cranraisins, and nuts. If more time, baked oatmeal is awesome, not low cal, but delicious, filling, and healthy.
* 2 cups uncooked quick-cooking oats
* 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
* 1/3 cup raisins
* 1 tablespoon chopped walnuts
* 1 teaspoon baking powder
* 1 1/2 cups fat-free milk
* 1/2 cup applesauce
* 2 tablespoons butter, melted
* 1 large egg, beaten
* Cooking spray
Preheat oven to 375°.
Combine the first 5 ingredients in a medium bowl. Combine the milk, applesauce, butter, and egg. Add milk mixture to oat mixture; stir well. Pour oat mixture into an 8-inch square baking dish coated with cooking spray. Bake at 375° for 20 minutes. Serve warm.

Obviously I'm a breakfast person. I'm also a teacher and tend to eat my 'big meal' at lunch. Others may find that this is more a dinner thing, but I like having my sustenance meals done before 1, for dinner I go for a broth soup or salad by 5. Mind you, I'm up at 4am at the latest.
I like pasta, hot or cold. Sometimes with tomatoes and veggies, oftentimes with just a swig of olive oil, garlic and herbs. There are times I'll add chicken, salmon or tuna, mostly just veggies.
My salads tend to mimic my pasta choices, lots of veggies, interesting dressing, little or no meat.
Whatever choices I make, I usually include homemade bread, via slices with cheese or croutons to salad or soup.

Salads are definitely an option for you. It's easy to change up the ingredients so that you don't get bored and it's easy enough to pack and take with you for lunch. Some toppings I like are dried cranberries, avocado, carrot, pineapple, mandarins won-ton crackers, nuts.
An alternate breakfast choice is oatmeal or some other porridge type meal like Red River. You can add fruit and nuts too.
First things first, breakfast is SO important! Try setting your alarm a little bit early so you'll have time to get in a quick breakfast. If not, at least grab something you can eat on the run, like a protein bar and some almonds or a protein shake and a fruit! Eating breakfast gives you the fuel you need to start your day, will keep you energized and your metabolism goin' strong and will keep you from overeating later in the day! So try really hard to get breakfast in everyday! I promise your body will thank you!
There are so many healthy lunch options you can have, even at school. It sounds like you prefer buying something there over bringing something? That's fine. You can still make healthy choices and get what your body needs! Try to get in a couple servings of grains, proteins, some healthy fat, and some fruits and/or veggies. It might sound a little overwhelming, but it's actually pretty simple if you eat foods that combine all of those things, like sandwiches! You could do something like a turkey sandwich on whole grain bread with a slice of cheese or avocado, some carrot sticks dipped in hummus, and a carton of 2% or soy milk! Another good option for a sandwich is peanut butter and jelly! Then go for a fruit cup and some milk on the side! Also, if your school does wraps, those can be a really healthy option! If you want to do a salad, that's ok too! Just make sure your salad also has a source of grain and protein with it, like a baby spinach salad topped with grilled chicken strips and a little cheese, and then eat that with a snack pack of pretzels and a carton of milk or soy milk. If you want dressing, go for something like a vinaigrette, or if you want something creamier like ranch, go for light or reduced fat ranch!
As far as snacks, you pretty much have unlimited options! You can do things like protein bars (Clif bars are really good!), greek yogurt and granola, protein shakes or smoothies, string cheese and whole grain crackers, nuts,seeds, or trail mix, fruit with peanut butter, veggies dipped in hummus, granola bars (go for the ones without a ton of added sugar!), a cup of whole grain cereal (I like the Kashi brand!) with some milk or soy milk, turkey or chicken lunch meat rolled up with cheese in the middle, frozen yogurt, any of those 100 calorie snack packs, graham crackers with nutella, half a PB&J sandwich on whole grain bread, a mini bagel with fat free cream cheese, dried fruit, pretzel sticks or baked lays chips.... the list goes on and on and on!
I hope this helps you out some and gets you started on healthy ideas for your meals and snacks! Oh, and don't forget to drink plenty of water throughout the day (you need 8 of the 8 ounce glasses) to stay very well hydrated! Good luck! :)
Salads are actual an selection for you. that's straightforward to regulate up the elements so that you do not grow to be bored and that's straightforward adequate to p.c.. and take with you for lunch. some toppings i love are dried cranberries, avocado, carrot, pineapple, mandarins received-ton crackers, nuts. an option breakfast selection is oatmeal or another porridge type meal like red River. you may upload fruit and nuts too.
