Clean Eating Sandwich Skewers

My husband LOVES sandwiches.  Turkey, pepperoni, chipotle chicken, avocado, tomato, red onion and SHARP cheddar cheese.  It makes my mouth water just thinking about it.  There is no doubt that a sandwich can be an easy AND delicious meal.  Cooking for the whole family when mom is trying to eat better is HARD WORK!  So I've come up with a few work arounds to make meals for the family and myself without sacrificing flavor or compromising my eating habits. 

I think these cuties are pretty self explanatory.  But here is what I did:


Romaine lettuce leaves
Boars Head lunch meat
cherry tomatoes
shredded carrots


1.  Rinse and dry the romaine leaves.  Cut down the middle, making one leaf into to small leaves and discard the ribs.
2.  Lay your 1-2 slices of lunch meat on each side of lettuce and pile some carrots in the middle.  Roll up the leaves and cut in half.  Skewer with a tooth pick to hold in place.
3.  Add cucumber, tomatoes and avocado.

Optional:  Drizzle with red wine vinegar and olive oil, sprinkle with salt and pepper.    

I didn't miss the bread and you won't either!
