Starting out with lettuce, cucumbers and mayonaise

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!

The rolled product.

The final product. It tasted great!

Adding in the tomato, roast beef, avocado and red onions

It rolled up!

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

  • 1/4 avocado sliced

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!
