What does a girl eat for lunch, who has chosen to live the rest of her life following a Low-Carb lifestyle?

Label Ham and cheese rollup

 

Since I switched to eating nutritious, Low-Carb, real food, several years ago, lunch became one of the toughest meals to plan and execute.  Eating salad is nice and I do it quite often, but that can get old if done every day. Eating a sandwich can be challenging because bread has so many carbohydrates. Occasionally I make a super yummy ham, cheese and ranch roll up, using a Low-Carb tortilla and good quality Low-Carb ranch dressing.   😀  Costco carries large Whole Wheat Tortillas which only have 6 net carbs, and some great savory refrigerated ranch dressing with less than one Carb per serving.

 

HAM AND CHEESE RANCH ROLL UPS

Makes two servings

2 Whole Wheat Low-Carb Tortillas
1/2 pound good quality ham – diced
1/2 cup sharp cheddar cheese – shredded
2 tablespoons savory ranch dressing  (Hint- most Ranch dressing is Low in Carbohydrates – just check the label!)

Open tortilla

 

Mix ham cheese and ranch dressing together spread half down the center of each tortilla.  Make certain filling goes all the way to the edge of the tortilla. Roll up like a crepe.  Heat through in a microwave or toaster oven.  Cut in half and serve!  These are absolutely delicious and satisfying!

Each serving has less than ten (10) grams of carbohydrate, and that includes the pickles!

      As a low carb eater, I often cook and eat separately from my kids, so I don’t wait too often for others to eat with me. I’ve got my husband hooked into the low carb way, because it has overcome his type 2 diabetes! Thanks for the kind words.

    I love eating wraps! I agree with you about the salad thing. I love salads but especially this time of year I have a hard time getting excited about them.
    I am hooked on a wrap with spinach and portabella mushrooms sauteed and put in it. So good! I add light mayo and provolone cheese and it is so yummy!

      Me too! I love the idea of the spinach, mushroom and provolone wrap! Have you ever used a portabella mushroom like a bun?

    Good idea! We are always on the lookout for low carb options. I LOVE me some fresh bread, and it can be hard. I do not love salads, so my lunches are really limited.
