Sometimes it can be challenging to come up with low carb ideas for lunch, so what are you having for lunch?

Please feel free to share a picture if you would like to do so!

Chicken Salad
Although it isn't pretty (no picture of it) one of my favorite lunches (and what I had today) has become almost a comfort food for me.

Chicken Salad

4 oz Chunk White Chicken Canned (Sweet Sue)
2 Hard Boiled Eggs (Chopped)
1 Simply Pickles Kosher Dill Spears (Chopped)
2 TBLS Hellmanns Mayonaise

It has very few (if any carbs) and I really enjoy it. Sometimes I eat it over a bed of salad, but today, I ate it as is.

My Own Blended Protein Shake
Every now and then, especially when I am busy, I like to mix up my own blended protein shake.

It makes me feel full so that I can get by until dinner without needing to add extra snacks, etc.

2 Cups Unsweetened coconut/almond milk blend.
1 Scoop Protein Powder. (I use Body Fortress 100% Protein Isolate - 2 net carbs)
1 teaspoon Instant coffee.
2 tbsp PB2 powdered peanut butter.

I usually add a dash of granulated Splenda and cinnamon.

Smoked turkey sandwich: 3 slices of deli meat folded over a slice of smoked gouda cheese. That's all - very good and filling. If I had wanted to go to more trouble, I'd have spread the inside with mayo and put in a leaf of lettuce. But was being lazy today.

I've tried those Premier Shakes, tasted good but it spiked my BG. I do fine with Quest brand though.

Today for lunch I had a lettuce wrap(romaine) with homemade Caesar dressing, tuna, cheese, a couple olives and some hemp hearts and two small pickles.

lettuce, green pepper, radish, onion, mushroom
can tuna fish
1/4 cup shredded cheddar
sprinkle of parmesian

I usually only use dressing when the lettuce/salad fixings are getting a little old.
