During this busy season of the year, I need to keep my meals super simple, or I will most definitely fall for unhealthy packaged convenience! One of the easiest, yummiest, fastest lunches I can put together is this Unwich Salad, which has all the flavor of a good sandwich, but without the carbs.
I try to make a habit of cutting up several heads of romaine lettuce at the beginning of the week, washing and drying them, and storing them in an air tight container for ease. Pre-washed romaine is the base of this salad, topped with Piller’s Salami Whips pieces (this is a personal choice item since it contains a few off-plan ingredients, but it still comes out to 0 grams of sugar per serving!) Parmesan Whisps, and a wonderful dressing made from:
Cello Parmesan Whisps
Cello Parmesan Whisps are a game-changer for me. They made out of 100% Parmesan cheese, but they are crunchy like croutons and so flavorful! Since they’re quite high in protein, I often eat them plain as a substitute for crackers and chips, but they’re amazing in Trim Healthy Mama-friendly S salads, too!
You could easily turn this salad into an FP by replacing the salami whips with leaner chicken breast or very lean deli ham, cutting back on the Parmesan Whisps, and adding your favorite non-statchy veggies: chopped cucumber slices, a small amount of grated carrots, or finely chopped sweet peppers, for example.
The dressing contains a tablespoon of both mayo and half & half, but since you’ll have enough of it to serve 4, you’re still well within the 5 gram fat limit for Fuel Pull meals.
