SARBEAR, those are great ideas, especially the tuna! I get tired of cold lunches and salads and sometimes need some creaminess and flavor without a lot of calories. I will look for the Queso and Mozz./Basil flavors. Great ideas, thanks!
Those Laughing Cow wedges have become a staple for me. I like to toast a slimwich 100 calorie for the bread, add a wedge of the LC and the possibilies are endless! The Queso flavor and also the Mozz/Basil are also very good. I don't eat meat very often, so I pile on the vegis - cucs, tomato, sprouts, red or green peppers, fresh herbs, dried herbs/spices.
Lately, I have wanted a hot sandwich at night, so I take a 100 calorie can of tuna fish and heat in a skillet with a wedge of LC (no mayo this way!) and add spices - dried onion, red pepper flakes, pepper, garlic powder, dill, chives) and usually add a big pile of spouts or cuc on top too!
The LC wedges are also great "melted" (more like combined) with scrambled eggs (I also add lots of spices here too) and go great on burgers or the Morningstar "Meatless" Burgers (last night was the Mozz/Basil wedge with the Morningstar Pizza burger)
The Oscar Meyer Mesquite turkey I used has 440 mg of sodium per serving, which is 19% of my recommended total for the day, so that isn't bad. The pickles, though, are of course high in sodium. You could leave out the dill pickle slices and use freshly-cooked turkey breast to lower the sodium.
If I ever win the lottery I'm going to pay someone to bake and slice a nice turkey breast for me once a week. :)
I took a whole-wheat tortilla and spread it with a wedge of Laughing Cow Lite Garlic & Herb cheese. Then I covered the tortilla with two ounces of very thinly-sliced deli turkey. I added a few sliced pickles and some lettuce greens which I had tossed with very low-fat Italian dressing, rolled it up, and had it with an apple and a cup of green tea. 349 calories, 9 grams of fiber, 16 grams of protein, and 30 grams of YUM.
Other people may already know about this, but it was new to me, and I love new lunch ideas, so I thought I'd share.
