Get healthy with me: Lunch + Recipes

So I´ve done a breakfast and dinner post, there´s only one big one missing and that´s of course lunch. I got some questions from friends and family concerning this meal of the day and here I have some answers and of course recipes!

Now first of all you eat lunch to replenish your body’s energy stores so it can conquer the rest of the day and not run out of fuel. So that means eating complex carbs, of course, but not as many as you ate for breakfast because after all you´ve already gone through a big part of your day. The other part of your lunch should contain some veggies or fruit. You need protein and healthy fats of curse as well. So your lunch should be a mix of complex carbs, healthy fats and protein.

Now there are two types of “lunch-eaters”. I myself count to the ones that eat rather lightly at lunch, I opt for salads or soups most of the time. But other people like to eat much and rather rich things for lunch, something like spaghetti. Tell me in the comments down below, which “eater” you are and what you eat for lunch most of the time, I´d love to hear!
Both as a light-eater or a “rich” one, you can get your portion of nutrients. And depending on which “lunch-eater” you are, you can eat the following recipes for lunch or dinner. That´s the thing, also in cook-books, you decide whether you want to eat the lunch recipe for lunch or dinner, same goes for the dinner recipes.
