Low carb tuna wrap lunch


Tuna wrap: 1 can albacore tuna in water. 1 cup mixed fresh carrot and broccoli- food process the veggies until very fine- but not a mash! 1/4 cup light or regular mayo, spice to taste. I use Jane’s Crazy mixed- up salt. I add Tillamook cheddar, 1 slice, atop my low carb tortilla. ( net gram 6 for the tortilla. ) add lettuce, tomato and pickle, if preferred. This is a nice way to add veggies to the ” usual” tuna sandwich.

  1. Extras today: one low carb lemon poppyseed muffin- 3 gr. 2 sugar free Oreos after lunch- 6 grams. Today’s goal is about 25-30 gr net carbohydrate. I will have a meaty salad for dinner, and will be done, so I’m doing fine. 🙂

  2. The idea with most of my creations is that they are easy to make, most of the ingredients are things we already have on hand, and they are FAST to prepare. It’s just simple eats. What makes them different is the fact that they are low- carb without being what people think of as ” low- carb” sometimes- a big bacon festival add cheeseburger. No- there are many ways to meet the requirements of low carb while still getting more fiber and veggies than our carb- loading brethren. What we don’t have are the hydrogenated fats, sugars in their myriad of forms, and empty white starch calories. White pasta, rice, and flour are nutritionally bankrupt. If you want a low- fat, low- calorie diet that gives your body muscle- sustaining and hunger- crushing energy, focus on lean meats and veggies, and fruit that counts toward level glycemic counts. These fruits include antioxidant rich berries, fiber- and- fluid- rich melon, and my favorite fruit, tomato! If you are vegetarian , ( not vegan) you can still eat this way utilizing brown and black rice with beans or chickpeas, lots of eggs or egg whites, nuts and nut flours, and even tofu. Just beware that soy has its dark side. Meanwhile, veggies, veggies, veggies! Anyone who thinks that Atkins takes vegetables out of the diet has not read the books! If anything, I eat more salad and veggies now than ever. Any questions?
