Over the last two week I have worked on making whole food plate meals. I am really good at dinner. It's easy: meat and a veggie. Simple right?
Lunch is a whole other ball game. We are out and about on most days. This means we are stopping for fast food or sitting down to lunch somewhere. The nutritionist told me I should just not eat out. She made it sound like it would be a simple task. One you could conquer without much thought.
My problem is she has tried to revamp our entire eating in a month. I am eating smoothies for breakfast on most days. I am suppose to eat a whole food plate for lunch and dinner. For snack, I am suppose to eat an apple and 1/2 ounce of almonds. Plus, I am suppose to go cold turkey on both soda and sweet tea at the same time. Well, she will allow me 3 sodas a week.
To me, that is alot of change in a short amount of time. That much change makes me overwhelmed. I need to conquer little bits to feel successful. When I get overwhelmed, I tend to make poor choices and loose my motivation.
I meet with the nutritionist on Tuesday. At my meeting, I am going to discuss the difficulties I am facing. I am in desperate need of lunch ideas that are quick and tasty, but also realistic.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
