I have been running around a lot lately and have been forgetting my health in my rush to do other things. Does this happen to anyone else?
I found myself getting home late afternoon today and realized that I was starving!!! I mean really hungry, not that cutesy Winnie the Pooh grumbly-in-my-tumbly stuff. Then it hit me – I have not eaten yet and it’s 4:00! Bad, bad!!
So I threw together the quickest meal I could come up with that would offer a good amount of protein and headed out the door again.
This lunch is perfect for travel and I’ll be able to eat most of it while driving (not exactly the best habit but necessary today) without compromising safety.
The sandwich is a small french roll with ham, swiss cheese, lettuce, tomato, red onion, and mustard. (I took the insides out of the roll to reduce carbs and calories and make room for extra protein.)
Along with the sandwich I put in some pickle slices that ended up half on the sandwich and half as a munchie. I also have red grapes, butter flavored pretzels with cream cheese for dipping and a sweet-creamy Strawberry Shortcake yogurt.
