It's a Wrap! - Turkey Pastrami and Swiss

I love to make wraps! They are quick and easy and the combinations are endless. They also hold more fresh ingredients than a typical sandwich and are easier to hold and eat.

Last night we had chicken fajita salads, huge ones and we ate every bite. Fresh veggies and smoked meats are a great combination. The problem with eating every bite is that there isn't anything left over to take to work the next day. Taking your lunch everyday is a huge cost saver and chances are you can concoct something that is every bit as delicious as your local eatery can serve up. Healthier too.

For lunch I'll have a wrap. A quick rolled up sandwich that will really hit the spot. For this edition of It's a Wrap I wanted to simply show you a trick to do with lettuce.

First I started this wrap with something sticky. If you read It's a Wrap you know why.

Next, I added some heart of romaine lettuce. Romaine lettuce is so much better than Iceberg. Iceberg is an empty calorie food. You get some fiber from it but very little and it's such low calories that you are not nourishing your body. Romaine is always a better choice.

My trick? I cut out the center. It lays flatter and makes it much easier to wrap.

My flavor tomorrow? Lean Turkey Pastrami and Swiss cheese with fresh romaine, tomato and avocado seasoned with a spicy German mustard. Simple but good and very quick to fix.

What did you have for lunch today?
