This ketogenic lunch utilized leftovers from my pot roast dinner last night as well as some fresh vegetables. I started out by washing two leaves of lettuce and overlapping them. One thing that I did with the romaine was to bend the stalk in a few places, so that I could roll the ingredients that were inside the wrap. This actually turned out to be really helpful.
I spread mayonnaise on top of the lettuce and added some thinly sliced cucumbers that I had on had.
Next, I sliced some roast beef, tomatoes, red onions and added some avocado. I tried to keep the ingredients as thin as possible to make rolling it easy.
The rolling of it was tricky. I won’t lie. It isn’t like stuffing it into a tortilla. Lettuce tends to break easier than tortillas and not fold quite as easily, but it did work!
One thing that did help was I used a paper towel to wrap around it so that it wasn’t as messy.
- 2 leaves of Romaine lettuce
- 3 slices of roast beef
- 4 slices of cucumber
- 1 slice of red onion
- 1/4 avocado sliced
- Salt and pepper to taste
Directions: Lay the lettuce flat on the cutting board. Spread mayonnaise over the lettuce. Add the veggies and the roast beef. Roll the lettuce and other ingredients together. Wrap a paper towel around it to make eating it easier! Enjoy!
