My workplace lunches

So this is what I have been making for lunch this past week for work. Whole wheat wraps with lean meats such as chicken, turkey, and ham. I use red or green leaf lettuce, mustard, cheddar or Munster cheese, tomato, and sea salt and fresh cracked black pepper.

I feel so much better than eating a whole sandwich with all that bread! I now have energy to keep going for work.

That sounds so good! And a great alternative to a sandwich too

That does sound good! It's important to check those labels, though, because some of those wraps have just as many calories and carbs as regular bread and sometimes they even have more!

I agree that it sounds good but I agree with Jeans. I was shocked when I read the wrap label. It wasn't as healthy as I thought. I know a lot of people that are making sandwiches on leafs of romaine lettuce.

Well, I just looked at it and the whole wheat wraps have less carbohydrates than 2 slices of bread. The wrap also has more fiber as well. So, in conclusion, it is a healthier option. Is it perfect? No, otherwise I would be eating a tree branch.

It all depends on what brand you buy and if it's got a good fiber content. Sounds like you made a good choice with the available options out there, Avocado. I also make sure I always check out the labels and ingredient list.

Sounds like a good choice to me I have wraps over bread a lot but I've never cut out carbs and things I like
