Have I mentioned lately how happy I am to be eating real food again?
I am SOOOOOO happy to be eating real food again.
Especially things that crunch.
Right now, I'd like to take a moment to publicly than Ruthy for turning me onto broccoli slaw.
That stuff is AMAZING!
And here's my favorite way to eat it. Matter of fact, this wrap has become my favorite lunch.
Yes, I said a wrap. Ruthy, you're gonna love this one because it's carb friendly.
With only 3 net carbs, Joseph's Pita Bread (also Joseph's Lavash) is Trim Healthy Mama approved.
My husband and I go through this stuff like crazy. We use them for wraps, put peanut butter on them, use them as a bun for hamburgers. I mean this stuff is just fantastic.
Best of all, they sell it in the deli section of my Walmart, so it's easily accessible.
But I digress.
So we start with our pita.
You could also use a tortilla or the aforementioned lavash.
Now I add a slice of cheese. Sometime I'll use two slices, but this day I just broke one in half.
Okay, for some reason, this picture rotates whenever I upload it, but I wanted to you to see the
Sargento Ultra Thin cheese slices. Another one of my favorite things.
Gotta make sure I'm going to have cheese in every bite.
Next comes the ham, turkey, roast beef or a mix thereof. Whatever deli meat you enjoy.
I usually buy the Hillshire Farms brand and use six slices, but this was Target's store brand and the slices were really big, so I only used four.
Now comes my favorite part.
So much better than plain old lettuce.
Then I top everything with a nice drizzle of Caesar dressing.
You're welcome to use whatever you like, but I'm on a Caesar kick.
Okay, I'll admit that rolling this wrap can be a bit of a challenge.
But not impossible. After all, where there's a will...
I'll admit it. I lied when I said the broccoli slaw was my favorite part.
Instead, my favorite part is eating this happy little parcel.
If you're counting calories, there are only 160 calories in this baby, not counting the dressing.
On Trim Healthy Mama, this would be an S meal, because it is definitely satisfying.
It fills me up and keeps me full until well into the afternoon.
Best of all, the pounds are still coming off. I'll admit that I was a little concerned how the weight loss would be affected when I went back to real food. Granted, the weight's not dropping like a rock, as it did when I was on the liquid diet, but the downward trend is still there. And that I like.
What's you're favorite quickie lunch? I mean besides Chick fil A. :)
I'm also curious, is there anyone else Ruthy has sucked in with her broccoli slaw?
