Preparing that Perfect Lunch on the Run for the Finest You
"Your Lunch Pack plays a vital role in getting maximum fat loss results as fast as possible.”
Lunch is a crucial meal since it’s strategically scheduled in the middle of the day. You need to replenish lost nutrients from your morning activities. But also fuel yourself up with essential proteins to see you through the afternoon and early evening.
Lunch preparation is like any other part of your fitness routine — you need to do it every single day to get the results you want. If you don't think about things properly ahead of time, you end up with poor food choices that aren't ideal for your body. That's why if you really think about it, your lunch pack is something that sets you up to achieve your fat or weight loss goals.
Planning is the Key
In sports nutrition, every single aspect of your food intake is recorded, measured, and planned ahead of time in order for your body to achieve its optimal performance all the time. It sounds like a military operation, right? Well, in some ways it is. Planning gives you total control over your results.
It needs to be planned with dinner from the previous evening. Unlike regular lunch, you can just pick up something from the convenience store or fast food joint along the way. Everything should be there when you need it — including your own protein drinks.
At the end of the day, all the planning and preparation needed for your everyday lunch pack is “future-proofing” your nutrition for the fat loss results you are hoping to achieve.
The Essentials Materials You Need
Aside from your packed lunch, you need other important things to go along with it as well. Here's what you need when you're on the go:
- Large plastic container with your main meals
- Medium plastic container with 5-10 serves of HP100 protein powder
- Small plastic container with 2-3 handfuls of nuts mix
- Spoon and fork
- Shaker to mix your protein shakes
- Cooler bag to carry it all in
- Large water bottle (1-1.5L)
Lunch Meal Preparation Food Ideas
If you saved some of your previous night's dinner meal for the next day's lunch, then there isn't much to prepare. Just remember to bring your food with you and heat it up when you're ready to eat!
If you want to prepare a separate meal from your dinner the night before, here are some ideas:
- Pre-steamed vegetables or salad. Mix spinach and rocket with olives and a small amount of sun-dried tomatoes.
- Add some lean protein to your salad: Canned chicken or tuna. Or deli meats like chicken, beef, or turkey.
- Add some herbs and some white vinegar to your liking.
You can easily whip up this simple lunch in just two minutes tops.
