Tuna Unwich

Whenever I’m out and about my favorite “fast food” joint to grab some healthy food is Jimmy Johns. Their sandwiches are delicious and fresh, plus they have the low-carb “unwich” option, which allows you to have your sandwich turned into a lettuce wrap. They’re the ones to credit for my Lettuce Wrap Boat Tutorial.

As much as I love them, it’s much more affordable (per usual) to make them at home yourself. Today I did just that. I was craving a #15 aka Tuna Salad, unwich style, and I knew I had all the ingredients at home to make it myself. So that’s what I did for lunch. Can I tell you that it was even better than JJ. I was so beyond happy with how it turned out I was tempted to make it again for dinner. Instead I decided I would just have it again tomorrow for lunch. Even better, the macros were perfect on it. 5 net carbs (4 without the avocado), 52g of protein, 36g of fat, 591 calories. It was also incredibly filling!

So here is my tuna unwich recipe:
7 oz can of tuna (in water)
3 Tbsp mayonnaise
1/2 tsp celery salt
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/3 cup finely diced yellow onion
4 rounds Vlassic Sugar Free Bread & Butter Chips

Mix your tuna ingredients in a bowl
Take 3 lettuce leafs and stack them
Spread tuna in the top cup
Spread 1Tbsp Dijon Mustard on top
Top with a slice of preferred cheese (I use pepper jack)
Finish with some sliced avocado then wrap up and eat
*You can sprinkle some oregano on it too for an extra twist, and I also love some bacon, sprouts, cucumbers, pepperoncinis, or hot peppers added!
