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!
