Quick LC and low cal lunch

Recommended Posts

A day I knew would come arrived today.  I am slammed with work and need to make lunch "quick".  So in my pre ClubD! days, I would slap together a sandwich with a side of chips and a coke and be done with it.  Now, no bread...

 

So I realized that a sandwich is basically a salad you hold in 2 pieces of bread so I made a salami sandwich with all the fixins into a salad and even ran some Italian dressing on it.

 

Writing this, it hardly seems inspiring but wait, there's more...

 

I miss croutons on my salad and I suppose a few wouldn't hurt but I don't have any to test with one way or the other.  I do, however, have a bag of pork rinds and my mind stopped on this and reminded me that pork rinds are crunchy like croutons and they taste good with a sandwich so they might work as croutons.

 

Lo and behold, they did work!  Next time, thought I need to leave them whole (I crushed the bigger ones which diminshed the experience a little).

 

So I had a salami, cheese, kale, tomato, onion, cucumber, pepper sandwich sans bread in a bowl.  Lunch was 400 calories and 13.5 total carbs (I didn't sit down and figure the net carbs yet).  I know from past experience this will easily tide me over until dinner.

 

So take that diabetes!

I always like a few pork rinds on my green salads.   I stay away from the barbecue ones since the ones I've seen have sugar.

 

They also make a terrific "breading" for fish, chicken or whatever one would bread (just crush finely).

 

You are coming along nicely there Meyery ;)

I often to an inside out sandwich roll in warm weather.

 

On a large, thin slice of lunch meat I spread a thin layer of cream cheese (flavor up to you).  Then add roasted ed pepper, mixed spring greens, cucumber sticks, or whatever else looks good and I have on hand.  Then rolls them up and dip in a bit of spicy brown mustard.  Sometimes I might also add a little bit of swiss, cheddar, or provolone cheese to each roll depending on how I feel at the moment.
