The Best Lunch Foods for More Energy

Lunch

A light, low-fat meal improves midday energy and alertness. This lunch is rich in iron, the number one nutrient women don't get enough of. Even a mild iron deficiency can translate into muddied thinking, disrupted sleep, and an urge to nap under your desk around 3 p.m.

Black Bean and Cheese Burrito
1 8-inch flour tortilla
2/3 c black beans
1 oz low-fat cheddar
3 Tbsp diced tomato
1 Tbsp chopped cilantro
1 Tbsp salsa

Tossed Salad
2 c chopped romaine lettuce
2 Tbsp chopped red onion
3 Tbsp corn kernels
2 Tbsp low-calorie dressing

Energy Zapper
Too many calories will leave you lethargic; too few and you're flagging without the fuel and nutrients you need. Aim for 500 calories at lunch and 200 for snacks. Mix carbs and protein with healthy fats like those in olive oil and nuts.
