This recipe isn’t really a recipe, it’s more of a lesson in assembly. But we’ve discovered the key to staying on track is having healthy, easy go-tos that come together in no time. While we’re not against carbs, we love recipes that taste like their carb laden predecessors while packing way more nutrients and a much better macro profile. This lettuce wrap can be made in a hundred different ways. A BLT version of this would be fantastic or try it with tuna salad!


What you need:

4 large romaine leaves

3 oz Natural Pastrami Lunch Meat (look for one with no nitrates or nitrites)

1 T Mayo

1 T Mustard

Thinly sliced dill pickle

½ avocado

¼ cup bean sprouts, other micro greens or finely chopped herb of choice

Parchment paper for wrapping

How it's Done:

Lay romaine leaves out in a fan. Spread mayonnaise and mustard across the leaves. Lay pastrami out evenly across the leaves then top with pickle, avocado and microgreens. Starting on the outer edge gently roll the leaves tightly into a burrito.

Cut a piece of parchment paper 1.5 times the size of your lettuce wrap. Place wrap in the center of the parchment. Begin by setting your paper vertically in front of you, just like with the flat-sandwich technique. Then place the sandwich diagonally across the paper, near one of the corners. Now lift that corner up and over the sandwich, pressing it flush. From there, roll the sandwich in paper toward the far opposite corner, folding in the sides as you go.Once the sandwich is fully rolled in the paper, with everything tucked in, use a piece of tape to secure the package. And there you have it: a neatly(ish) wrapped lettuce sandwich, ready for transport! When you’re ready to enjoy, cut the wrap width-wise on the diagonal.
