You know I am on the little to no carb lifestyle by now, I am sure. If not, take a look around and you will see. It's not a diet, it's a lifestyle and if you cheat, who cares, just return to being good the next meal. Right before I wrote this post, I had dinner for my niece's birthday and had my meatballs over broccoli instead of pasta, but had oreo ice cream cake for dessert. Did I beat myself up for that? No way, it was delicious, worth every calorie and would never happen on the reg. And I skipped the pasta! Her birthday was in March so you know this is an oldie but goodie!
I had pinned some ham wraps back in the Austin days when the low carb idea was a fad here and there and not a lifestyle. It seemed great, roll up some yummy stuff in ham, my favorite deli meat, and enjoy! I still had not tried it over two years later!
I was thinking of some easy lunches during a week when I had plans every night and not a lot of time to meal prep. All my healthy eaters out there know that it takes a lot of work to eat healthy and a lot of planning ahead. This was perfect for that week. No cooking, just a little chopping and a lot of my favorite things! I was feeling my version of "Mediterranean" and did marinated artichoke hearts, arugula and roma tomatoes. I also had some leftover cheddar from another project so I threw that in. Try this with your favorite fillings and roll your own, it is so fun! I popped it in the microwave for about 20 seconds to take the chill off and it was perfect!
|Not much to see here, just some of my favorite things!|
|Can I even call this cooking? I don't think I can.|
|Throw on a handful of arugula, so peppery!|
|Add the tomatoes|
|Add the artichokes and get a little liquid in there.|
|And cheese, glorious cheese!|
|Wrap it up, I'll take it!|
|I wrapped mine tight in plastic wrap to keep it together.|
One slice of deli ham, sliced semi thin, but not very.
Toppings of choice: I used arugula, tomato, artichoke and cheese
-lettuce, tomato, avocado and bacon
-frisee, fried egg and shallots
-spinach, strawberries, almonds and goat cheese.
Cut toppings into pieces and place on slice of ham. Roll up and enjoy!
