I've just started a new job, and have to bring a lunch. Due to some health issues I really can't tolerate lettuce very well, so what low carb ideas can I pack for lunch? Not even sure I can get to the microwave, so it needs to be self contained.
Also breakfast ideas are welcome. Low carb works well for me but I get stuck when I can't figure out these kinds of issues and just give in and eat the high carb food that is available.
I like to take Fage Greek Yogurt and dip persian cucumbers into it and I also crunch on almonds as well. You could also toss some olives in there. Yum!
Sometimes, I just take turkey cold cuts (low sodium) wrapped into some Munster cheese. It's super quick and filling. I don't do the tortillas at this point but if you do, then you could just wrap it in that.

Third goal: 168 (no longer overweight):
Fourth goal: 160 or below:
Final goal: 145-155 (not sure if this will ever happen):
I second a low-carb tortilla filled with a variety of stuff... sometimes I do grilled chicken, some chredded cheese and a little salsa, or I'll use canned chicken or tuna to make chicken/tuna salad using mayo and sugar free relish!
I almost always eat in and keep packets of tuna, salmon or chicken in my desk. Then on the way to work I drive thru McDonalds or Wendy's and pick up a side salad. Easy easy. Then I eat and read on my lunch hour.
