Clean Eating: Week 5

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.
