|Poor Man's Atkins||
I went down the street to a little soup and sandwich shop near me for lunch today. I learned that they make lettuce wrap versions of some of their salads. so I thought I would give them a try. I went for the egg salad version. It's really a simple idea and works so well. I loved that they included a little red pepper and tomato in them to give some added flavor. It's a great trick to do when you want to go the egg salad route. I'm sure I will go back to this place too since they are so near to my employer.
For lunch today I had egg salad wrapped in low carb tortillas. It was very yummy. And the eggs help keep the carb count down plus the right mix in an egg salad can be pretty filling. There is a place down the street that sells eggs salad lettuce wraps. I shall try them soon, but I have to be careful not to over do egg salad. It is a taste that although delicious, can wear out its welcome very quickly.
P.S. I think I am having carb withdrawals on my second day back on hard-core Atkins. I feel my body being cleansed, and it wants to fight back. I shall "diet coke" it into submission.
