Monday mornings usually start with the best intentions, but by lunchtime, we tend to be dreaming of melted cheese and thick sandwich bread.
So when we heard supermodel Molly Sims has dished her four most common everyday lunch options (which helps her keep on track with THAT body), we were intrigued.
Renowned Victoria’s Secret angel and Sports Illustrated model Molly Sims shared her four everyday meal options for lunch (and it’s actually quite manageable…)
Want to eat your way to a model physique? Why not try:
An Everyday Supermodel Salad
Large vegetable-filled salad topped with lean protein. (Feel free to include as many nonstarchy vegetables in your salad as you want. Top your salad with 2–3 ounces of lean protein — no more than the size of a deck of cards.)
Dressing: Any vinegar or lemon/grapefruit/orange juices are fine, or have low-fat, low-calorie dressing on the side and use sparingly. If out for lunch, ask your server for a side of vinegar.
Steer clear of going overboard on salad toppings that can add up to unwanted calories, like excess beans, nuts, seeds, cheeses, avocado, dried fruit and corn. These toppers have healthy properties but are also calorically dense — so just a sprinkle!
Miso soup, green salad with ginger dressing with your choice of one of the following:
Sashimi (up to six pieces)
Hand rolls WITHOUT RICE (up to three rolls)
Sushi rules: Skip white rice. No mayo-ized anything, crunchy fried onions, or tempura. Avoid appetite-stimulating soy sauce and instead ask for low-salt/low-fat dressings/sauces.
Two to Three Ounces Lean Protein & Vegetables
Lean proteins can be grilled, steamed, poached/boiled, or baked.
Try adding one teaspoon of Parmesan cheese to steamed vegetables to add flavor.
Soup & Salad
1 cup broth or vegetable-based soup such as chicken and vegetable, miso, gazpacho, or vegetable soup
