We get it, between your part-time job satelliting as your kid's teaching assistant, your spouse's loud conference call, and all the laundry sitting front and center, taking a break during the workday to make yourself lunch is the last thing on your mind. (Hello, processed snacks and all the coffee).

But taking a midday break to regroup and refuel with a nutritious meal can make the world of a difference for your mental health and your waistline. Luckily if you're looking to drop those 10 pounds that have crept up over the last few months, Joy Bauer's "Drop 10 TODAY" plan has loads of delicious and satisfying recipe options for every meal. You can mix and match all month long, repeating meals as often as you like. The meals contain the right balance of lean proteins, high-quality carbs and healthy fats to give you fast and effective results, with options that help you feel full.
