Quick and Healthy Lunch Ideas (pg. 2)

Aug 25, 2015


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!

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!

Okay so basically I used to go to this school and I met some of the people who I wish to be life long friends with. Problem: All of them go to a different school Problem: I go to a dumb boarding school and only get to spend 1 day and a half with them when i come back on fridays before I leave to go to school on Sundays. I really hate this school too. My sister graduated high school from here and my other sister is in her last year here. After this year I'm going to be all alone at this school. I'll have to be going here for the next seven years since its a middle and high school and I'm only in middle school. Plus my sisters are the best students there. Every time I tell people I'm the sister of Stephanie and Siri,they automatically have high expectations of me. But mainly,I just want to know how to keep in touch with my best friends. We can't even have phones at school so I can't talk to them during the week. [s:sm3/1jw0]

I understand how hard this must be. Because I should probably take this advice too.. I would try and focus on school lessons and ignore others. Don't be afraid to join a club! If you go to one that interests you then you might meet someone with common interests. I hope you get through this.
