It is no brainer that nutritionists know best when it comes to what and what not to eat. Most, if not all, of them, recommend that we cook and bring our own food so we can monitor the nutrition we are getting.
A great example would be preparing your packed lunch instead of ordering or going out.
Do you want to know their secrets? Here are 3 simple dishes nutritionists prepare for lunch.
1: Salmon, chickpea, and spinach quinoa salad
“I am all about ease these days, since I work full-time and have a 1-year-old. I always have wild, canned salmon on hand, and I like to combine it with quinoa—either that I made the night before or an organic heat-and-eat version—plus spinach and a handful of roasted chickpeas. I sprinkle everything with olive oil and sea salt. The salmon is a great quick source of omega-3s, and the quinoa, chickpeas, and spinach provide protein, crunch, and fiber to help keep me full.”
