I’ve been cutting back on carbs and eliminating sugar as an attempt to get healthier. I have some gut/stomach issues that have been bothering me forever and I’m at the point where I just want to feel better.
I love whole grains like oatmeal, but I really need to eliminate them for a while and then reintroduce them when things are more balanced out.
As for sugar, It’s been a love/hate relationship anyway. I love how it tastes, but it’s so addicting and I end up craving it all the time. It’s so much easier to be all or nothing with sugar. Plus, it’s just not healthy.
So tonight I’m sharing one of my favorite easy to make grain-free lunches. I’ve been eating this for years and I know it’s not anything revolutionary, but I just love it.
The collard wrap…
- a collard leaf (I snap the stem off)
- turkey or chicken (I like to use leftover meat from the previous night’s dinner)
- mustard or dressing of choice
- cilantro (or any fresh herbs that you like)
- onion slices
First, I drizzle the dressing into the center of the collard green.
Next, I arrange the meat and veggies in the center of the leaf and then I wrap it up.
Cut it in half and then you can stick a toothpick in the center of each piece to help keep it together.
