it's all about healthy fats

I always include some good fats with my lunch from whole food sources such as whole nuts and seeds, good quality extra virgin olive oil, and avocado. This keeps you satiated and supplied with key fatty acids to fuel your brain and your cells.

If you go low fat, your body will crave the fats it's missing, which might be confused for sugar cravings. This is why you might crave crisps or chocolate, even if you think you've had a decent lunch!

Jess's top lunch recipes

This recipe is so quick and easy to throw together. The warmth and crunch of the toasted sourdough makes the smashed avocado extra creamy. If you don't have time to poach your eggs, sliced boiled eggs work just as well.
