Lettuce wraps aka the unwiches are a keto staple. This unwich is a great lunchbox option for busy days when you don't have more than 5 minutes to prepare a meal.
Plus, lettuce wraps are so versatile! Here are some of the many options you can use to assemble an unwich:
- Proteins. You can use any cooked or cured meats such as chicken, salmon, steak, smoked salmon, ham, pepperoni, Parma ham, bacon, pastrami or tinned fish such as tuna or sardines. If you eat dairy, you can add any sliced hard cheese. If you don't eat meat, add sliced hard-boiled eggs for a vegetarian option.
- Vegetables. Apart from using lettuce to wrap the unwich, you can add tomato slices, peppers, cucumber or avocado.
- Sauce. You can use mayonnaise, pesto, cream cheese or goat's cheese.
- Flavor. Add a few sliced olives, sun-dried tomatoes, marinated artichokes or even a sprinkle of everything bagel seasoning. The options are endless!
For those who don't eat dairy, I've got a tasty dairy-free option. Try this delicious Keto Ranch BLT Lettuce Wrap!
