You all know I am all about healthy eating. Sure, I have the degree (I am a Dietitian), but more importantly, I crave healthy food. I feel bad when I eat junk and so over time I naturally prefer a diet loaded with all the foods we dietitians recommend. Whole grains, lots of fruits and vegetables, leaner proteins, dark chocolate.
I'm not saying I don't like a splurge on hot, crispy french fries once in a while, but overall, I feel better when I eat better and so I naturally am drawn to those foods that make me feel good. So in the Summer especially I love a great big salad, you know, the kind of salad that eats like a meal. It allows me to spend my time eating a large plate of food for very little calories and lots of nutrients.
However, my husband is not a huge salad fan. So for those of you like him who want to eat healthy, but don't make friends with salad (I'm talking to you Homer), here are 20 healthy lunch ideas that have no lettuce in sight.
