It's what's for lunch! Getting over the 'sandwich for lunch' habit is not easy. Because sandwiches are so easy - and there's so much variety in breads and fillings. My near-daily lunch has become a couple of lettuce wraps with a variety of different filling options. Quick.Easy.Healthy (!).Yummy.
Here's my lunch in process.
Here it is, ready to go.
Looks good, doesn't it? That particular wrap is simply tuna (I like it with a touch of dill and lemon) sprinkled with Greek Sheep Feta (everything's better with a sprinkle of Greek Sheep Feta :-)
Here are some ideas for lettuce wrap fillings. Start with your favorite spread on the lettuce:
- Mayonnaise, or Vegenaise, etc.
- Fruit Spread
- Cream Cheese
Then add your lunch protein:
- Sliced Chicken, Turkey, or other meat
- Turkey, Chicken, or Tuna Salad
- A Burger, crumbled up
Add other toppings:
- Roasted Red Peppers or Roasted Tomatoes
- Grated Carrots
- Your favorite cheese
Then just wrap it up and enjoy your fabulous lunch. (I'll bet you're already thinking of your own ways to fill a lettuce wrap). I think it's time to go eat lunch now....
Lettuce tip: be careful not to buy lettuce that is too narrow. You have to have enough width to wrap ..... or be very careful eating :-) If it's too wide, you can always trim it.
