Most of these are quick fixes, or can be easily made with left overs or healthy combinations that are all around you.

  4. Wow. Wonderful ideas. Thanks for sharing

  5. I like salad part and it's much easier, Can you also post some lunch box ideas for men? preferably Protein and Amino Acids.

  6. @Anonymous,

    You can add some protein to the salads like Grilled Tilapia, or Spicy Chicken Wings.

    I have added simple sandwich w/ Avocado to the above post. Avocado is one great vegetable source for Amino Acids.

    Always use Multi Grain Bread which has 6 gram protein in each slice. And for Wraps use Sprouted Grain Tortilla or Tofuyan Tortilla which has 13 grams protein.

    Hope this helps, Have Fun!
