The Joy of Lettuce Wraps

YOU NEVER NEED TO EAT BREAD IN YOUR SANDWICH AGAIN! Hooray for dramatic statements. Let me start out by saying that I LOVE a  good sandwich. The perfect balance between bread, condiments, veggies, and meats is why I get up in the morning, and there are few things quite as tasty as a good sammie. Unfortunately, bread is a no-no for many people, due to:
  • Gluten sensitivity/allergy
  • Empty carbs
  • Too many calories
If you can't eat bread but still want a sandwich, I've got the secret for you: Romaine lettuce.

You don't need to worry about empty carbs again, and you essentially cut your calories in half by replacing bread with lettuce. You can still eat all the same fillings, just replacing your bread with lettuce. [caption id="" align="aligncenter" width="600"] Source:[/caption] You can eat:
  • Tuna salad
  • Ham and cheese (sliced, rolled, or cubed)
  • Chicken salad
  • Sloppy Joes (try it, it's awesome!)
  • Hamburgers (weird but tasty)
  • BLT (extra L)
  • Scrambled egg
There are so many sandwiches you can make with lettuce, and you'll find that they're almost MORE enjoyable thanks to the fact that you're replacing bread with crispy, crunchy lettuce.   Featured Image Source:
