What I take for an easy, healthy lunch

Author: Dr. Michelle Durkin on 11 May 2021

Part of my meal prep every week is to have some type of protein ready for my lunches. It makes lunch super easy because all I have to do is add some veggies and I'm good to go. In the summer it is often salad, and in the winter I will mostly take soup.

Today I am going to share one of my favourites protein recipes with you - Chicken Curry Protein Muffins. This recipe is also a staple in many of my detox programs because it is gluten-free & dairy-free.

7 ingredients • 45 minutes • 6 servings


  • 1 lb Extra Lean Ground Chicken (you can also use ground turkey)
  • 1/3 cup Sweet Onion
  • 2 tbsps Egg whites
  • 3 tbsps Indian curry paste
  • 2 tsps Dijon Mustard
  • 1 tbsp Ground Flax Seed
  • 1 1/2 tbsps Cilantro (or coriander)


1. Mix all ingredients together & spoon in to greased muffin tin.

2. Bake at 375F for 40 minutes.

Now I would love to hear from you! What is one of your favourite easy lunch recipes and why? Leave a comment below and I'll be back next week with another edition of Doctor as Teacher Tuesday!

Sounds yummy! I’ll add it to my low-carb recipe list! I often enjoy an avocado and mixed seeds with romaine lettuce salad for lunch.
