I'm not a huge participant in the low-no carb dieting. However, I am always concerned with my calorie intake. I find the easiest way to cut calories, is to cut out unneccessary carbs. One day, I decided to throw out the tortilla and try wrapping my meal in a lettuce leaf. You get the great taste and nutrition of a regular turkey sandwich or wrap, without the extra 200+ calories or added carbs. It's fast, easy, health and tasty!

I used to eat these when I was dieting and they became a lifestyle with me. I use romain lettuce because it makes a nice fold to hold the meat. My favorite is Ocsar Myer oven roasted turkey. I sometimes sprinkle some sunflower seeds or other salad toppings to give a little crunch. I make up 6 at a time , cut in half, and place in a zip lock container in the fridge, and snack off them all day.

- 2 slices of oven roasted turkey breast
