I can cook.

I really can. But sometimes I just don’t feel like it. I live alone, so if I make something my cat and I are eating it for breakfast, lunch and dinner all week. (And I don’t think Marvin likes my cooking all that much.)

Preparing lunches are especially hard because they take up so much brain power before I’ve had my morning cup of coffee. And it can be tough to find healthy, fast meals that taste good, too. I mean, sure, you can buy something low-fat, fat-free, light, or diet, but does it usually taste all that good? Or fill you up?

So, I’ve found some nukers that are just as tasty as the real thing and STILL healthy for you! Here's my current lunch obsession:

This soup is healthy and wicked tasty – not a common occurance. And it only has 80 calories a serving! Ok. The can serves two, and you know we all eat the whole thing. But still! 160 calories for lunch is really low! And I guarantee you'll feel full afterwards.

I like to add pepper. Lots and lost of pepper.

What's your favorite lunch?

    It does look good. But that's 40% of your salt for the day... I agree there's no easy win with pre-packaged foods!

    Good point. I try to eat a low-sodium diet most of the time, but it's hard. They add salt to everything!! This is probably still ok to eat as long as you make a point to balance it out with your other meals!

    Thanks for pointing that out! There are so many things you need to pay attention to!

    I agree. The sodium level in these products are through the roof. I was actually reading an interesting article on salt.


    Maybe companies will jump on the bandwagon and "recreate" the salt molecules so we can lower our salt levels. But I am sticking with regular salt, thank-you-very-much!

    You should try making your own soup. You can make a huge batch to last you all week and it'll be homemade with you controlling the salt levels.
