Healthy Indian Lunch Plan Series #1

Lunch Planner  – Week 1

This post is about, how you can plan a healthy good lunch spread for your family. Since this is my first post about the lunch plan, I thought I can give a small intro about my cooking. If you are interested, go ahead and read, I would be happier, else skip those and go to pictures to see what I made for a week.

I started preparing full-fledged lunch after marriage. In the beginning, I didn’t know most of the items, I only knew very few items, I was just kept repeating those.

Then I started exploring different cuisines and dishes, slowly I improved my lunch spread a little bit. But I didn’t know about the carbs, protein, and fat content in the food.

I used to take a lot of rice, one dal, and one fry. After I realized the nutritional facts and how we are supposed to balance our food. I started making changes to my lunch menu, controlled the portion of rice and included more veggies.

In the beginning, it was always a challenge, what to prepare tomorrow. Then I started planning one day ahead and sometimes I make a plan for the whole week roughly and I sort it out later based on the day and availability.

The lunch I make every day roughly comes around 500 calories with the combination of all nutrients above the average level of what we are supposed to have.

I mostly make all the items fresh from the beginning and if I don’t have enough time to prepare. Then one day before I sort it out and cut some of the vegetables and keep it in the refrigerator, that way the next day, I can save some time.

I am not a fast cook. I prefer to cook all the food in medium or low heat. So it takes almost 1 to 1.30 hrs everyday to prepare lunch.

Planning ahead gives me a more clear idea and stress-free cooking. Aren’t we all want that,

This is a small recap of what I prepared for a week in a table format for a quick view,
