    I do roll ups with low sodium turkey like you showed #1. And I put slivered onion, cucumber, yellow mustard in mine. (I can’t do dairy, can’t do tomato but someone else could add them).

    I make tuna salad with tuna, walnuts, yellow mustard, chunked apple, onion, cucumber, celery, carrots. (Could add tomato or hard boiled egg).

    I use spinach instead of lettuce in salads.

    I make a hash of sorts with green beans, mixed frozen veggies, onion, tuna with two eggs on top.

      I like the onion and cucumber! I will try that in my wrap next week. Thanks for the idea!

      A veggie hash is also a great idea instead of hashbrowns.

        Something about the tuna makes it hash like with no potato. And helps even out the macros.

      Consider – be careful with sodium. You had a lot of things listed that are higher in sodium.

      I batch cook plain, skinless/boneless chicken breasts as soon as I get home from the store. Can cook in oven, grill, crock pot. I then can slice or dice. Replaces deli meat. Makes things simple. Also economical.

      When I buy deli meat, I look at labels. I compare sodium levels. Actually I take a picture of them. Then I have the data. Deli staff is helpful about this.

      I too use pickles, a little pickle goes a long way in brightening flavors. Have to really read labels with pickles too. Sodium levels and also added sugars.

      Really good post. Thanks.

        Agreed. The deli meat can sometimes be really salty. I did turkey pastrami a few weeks ago and it was a bit too salty for me. But oven roasted turkey seems to be ok.

          Can give self a sodium intolerance if consume too much. And that often causes dizziness issues/inner ear problems. I notice it most often with women. I did it to myself years ago and now have to really watch my sodium intake. (There are a lot of women with dizziness issues who do not understand.)

          So have to be careful not to trade carbs for sodium. It is easy to do.

            Interesting! I didn’t know that.

    I love putting what I call “plcky plates” together. Have you tried taking shrimp cocktail to work? I like making shrimp, some hummus and veggies for a dip, sliced apple, cheese – such a great way to use up random shit in your fridge!

      Sounds good! I like “snack” meals like that. I’m not sure about taking shrimp to work for lunch…I made the mistake one time of taking wonton soup leftovers for lunch and didn’t realize it had fish sauce in the broth…when I reheated the soup I was THAT asshole at work that made the whole place smell like fish!!! 🙁
