Suggestions for breakfast, lunch, and dinner

Suggestions for breakfast, lunch, and dinnerA main meal should ideally stabilize your blood sugar and provide 4-5 hours of satiety (possibly helped by a little snack). If you are still hungry, you may need more protein and less carbohydrate. If you have egg(s) with breakfast, you are better off choosing a different protein source for lunch.

Breakfast

  • 1-2 boiled eggs with a slice of whole-grain bread and vegetables (e.g. tomato, cucumber, root vegetables). Alternatively, an omelet.
  • 1 slice of whole-grain bread with approximately 75 grams of cold fish cuts such as tuna, herring, or salmon with vegetables
  • Porridge with linseeds, almonds, pumpkin seeds, and cinnamon. You may want to include an egg to achieve more satiety.

Lunch

  • A large salad with vegetables in season and a protein source like chicken, fish, shrimp or eggs plus vinaigrette dressing.
  • Avocado with shrimp and tomatoes
  • Dinner leftovers

Dinner

  • 1 steak (e.g. salmon, cod, chicken, lamb, or beef) and a freshly prepared salad with vinaigrette dressing
  • Chicken with mushrooms and steamed vegetables
  • A smoked herring with fresh, lightly cooked asparagus or vegetables of the season plus a slice of whole-grain bread/coarse rye bread

Snacks:

  • Banana and some walnuts
  • Whole-grain bread with peanut butter or cold cuts
