When planning a quick and easy lunch, this is the perfect choice. This recipe takes all of the components of a sandwich but leaves the bread on the shelf. The typical sandwich most of us are used to grabbing for lunch oftentimes leaves a feeling of bloated heaviness. By taking the bread element away, you still get your protein, healthy fats and fiber but without the insulin spikes from the heavy carbohydrates.
- Favorite lunch meat, sliced from the deli*

Set your meat of choice on a plate, layer with a slice of cheese then add veggies. Roll up like a wrap and fasten with a toothpick. Serve with celery sticks or an apple.
