Fitness Friday ~ Healthy Lunch

Posted Jun 26 2009 5:21pm

It's Fitness Friday and my friend Sandy of God Speaks Today has returned from sunny southern California. She's back on the job as host of Fitness Friday. If you're a blogger and want to join in, simply write a post about health or fitness and link to Sandy. We always love to welcome new bloggers to Fitness Friday.

Remember Friday = Health talk, OK?

I'm sure Sandy had many opportunities to do lunch with all the celebrities in Beverly Hills, LA and Malibu. I heard a rumor that she had lunch with Angelina and Brad. Is that really true, Sandy? Take a look at this photo op of the Coopers in front of the famous Beverly Hills sign? Is that cool?

But the big question is: Did they eat a healthy lunch?

Well, you may not have time for a leisurely lunch. Maybe you have a few other mouths to feed ... like your children?

Or maybe you only get a 30 minute break from work to have something quick to eat. So, what can you eat for lunch and still be healthy?

How about a sandwich? Now, I'm not talking about a greasy burger or a bunch of processed meat on a submarine.

  • Use whole grain bread, a pita or a whole wheat wrap

  • Use mustard or non-fat mayo to flavor it

  • Go heavy on the lettuce, tomato, cucumber, sprouts

  • Fresh herbs are great on a sandwich for flavor

  • Vegetable soup is a great accompaniment to a sandwich

  • Fresh fruit or a small salad works well too

A few suggestions for your sandwich filling:

  • Chicken breast

  • Tuna fish packed in water

  • Turkey breast

  • Portabello mushroom, grilled

  • Grilled vegetables

  • Veggie burger

So, what are you going to eat for lunch today? That is the question.

And by the way, I read Sandy's Fitness Friday post and it's so good. She must be well rested after her vacation because she certainly did a great job. She's talking about our Fitness Witness. After all, our bodies are a temple of the Holy Spirit. What are we telling others by how we treat our bodies? You've got to check it out.
