Quick and Healthy Lunch Ideas (pg. 2)

Aug 25, 2015

Sandwiches

Of course, the idea of just eating veggies for lunch might not seem too appetizing, in which case it might be a good idea to go with a nice, old-fashioned sandwich. Since we're trying to keep things healthy, you can go ahead and put away the peanut butter and Fluff.

What You Need:

  • First things first - the bread. There are so many different kinds of breads nowadays, including multigrain, bran and even some made with honey, that there's absolutely no reason to go with white bread. White bread doesn't contain even a fraction of the minerals and vitamins you can find in other kinds of bread, so choose something that has some substance.
  • Next, you need to put something between those two slices of bread. If you're in the mood for a tasty meat sandwich, why not grab some light ham or low-fat turkey? Throw a couple of slices on there and add some light mayonnaise and mustard (mustard is naturally fat-free).
  • If you'd like something a little more exotic, how about a sandwich with fat-free cream cheese and sliced cucumbers? For a truly different taste sensation, you can't beat a strawberry-watercress sandwich (which is just sliced strawberries and watercress on bread with light margarine). Don't be afraid to experiment!

Desserts

This is a little bit easier. The most obvious quick desserts are fruits, such as bananas, apples and cherries. But there are also plenty of quick and easy (and not to mention healthy) alternatives that you can buy from your local supermarket. Low-fat yogurt, light pudding, JELL-O... there are even cakes that have zero fat in them now!

It's important to think about why you are wanting to wear the makeup. If you are wanting it to impress someone, then chances are makeup is not the solution. When you are in middle school the need to impress escalates greatly. You do not always need to impress people with your looks. Impress them with your mind, blow them away with how good you are in a certain topic or how fast you read your assigned readings. Being pretty is something everyone strives to be, but how about being pretty smart, pretty funny, pretty kind, pretty helpful. There's all kinds of pretty. Now, if you are doing your makeup because it's fun and something you enjoy doing then by all means do it. Makeup can be an art, no matter what people say. I have many friends who's general art skills have increased because they can do their winged eyeliner perfectly, or their contour is just right. The point to all this is simple. Do the makeup for you, not for others. Please talk to your mom respectively about the topic and see if she changes her mind, and please do not be discouraged if she doesn't.  I hope this helps.
