Pack a Protein Peanut Butter Lunch
Labor Day traditionally marks the end of summer vacation and the beginning of a new school year. As students go back to school, you may again get into the habit of packing lunches. Whether or not you yourself are a student, you may want to take the time to think about some healthy weight loss lunches.
Peanut butter is a good go-to for sack lunches, and Powdered Peanut Butter can enable you to enjoy peanut butter while you lose weight. Each 2-tablespoon serving has 5 grams of protein, 2 grams of fiber, and only 45 calories and 1.5 grams of fat, which is only 25% of the calories and 15% of the fat as in regular peanut butter. You can use it as a protein powder or turn it into a spread by mixing it with water.
These are some ideas for great-tasting lunches that are easy to make, full of protein, and supportive of weight loss.
