Does a wrap count as a sandwich??  It probably does, huh?

I braved the blistering heat and humidity and went home again for lunch today.  Even though I’m only outside for probably 15 minutes total (if you include Nylah’s walk) , it’s such a shock to the system when you go from freezing AC to temps that feel like 100!

I was out of bread, so for lunch I made a Flat Out wrap with:

  • Turkey
  • Avocado
  • Mozzarella
  • Spinach
  • Dijon mustard


Mmmm… mozzarella.


I used avocado to include a healthy fat – and also because I love the taste!


I was starving when I got home so this was gone in about 5 seconds.

It took me about 10 seconds to finish this.


Carrots and hummus.

And 10 more seconds to finish these.


A handful of Kashi crackers.


And then I had a stomach ache because I ate too fast.  Typical.

I brought a banana and some fruit leather with me as an afternoon snack, and tonight we are going to load up on carbs!

See ya!


I had another sandwich again for lunch today!  I just can’t seem to break my need-to-have-a-sandwich-for-lunch habit!  I’m pretty sure it’s because I grew up eating sandwiches every day of my life for lunch (not that that’s a bad thing mom!)

Starting next Monday I am going to go 7 dayswithout having a sandwich for lunch.  Think I can do it? :)

If I had any spinach or lettuce, I would have been inclined to make myself a salad, but all I had was bread and turkey.

But at least I try to spice up my sandwiches, right?  Maybe?

So to create my lovely sandwich, I toasted Omega-3 seed bread and added some wasabi horseradish!


Remember I used this stuff in my chicken salad a few weeks ago?  If you are sensitive to spicy, I would not recommend this.  It cleared my nostrils out in a matter of seconds!  Note to self – use less next time.

Here’s the makings of my sandwich:



  • 3 slices of turkey breast
  • Green pepper
  • Banana peppers
  • Tomato
  • FETA!


Sandwiched together!

And a side of Food Should Taste Good olive chips!


I ran out of hummus or else I would have had that as well.

After we had lunch Chris ran out to REI as I headed back to work.  He’s going to pick up some triathlon gear for us!  Since I couldn’t be there, I told him to just ask a woman sales rep what he should get :)  All I know is I need a full piece bating suit (I’ve been swimming laps in my bikini!) and padded shorts.  Can’t wait to see what he comes up with :)

A classic!

I love grilled cheese with Dietz & Watson peppered ham.  And it has to be that exact kind, sliced thin.  No ifs, ands, or buts.

Because we had some turkey, I threw in a slice of that as well.  And to add some heat, I put a couple of banana peppers on (we always get the hot kind).

And I couldn’t resist adding more spicy goodness so I sprinkled some Frank’s Hot Sauce on top as well.


So all in all, my sandwich consisted of:

  • 2 slices of whole wheat bread (both drizzled with olive oil)
  • 2 slices of American cheese
  • 2 thin slices of peppered ham
  • 1 thin slice of turkey
  • ~ 5 banana peppers
  • A sprinkle of Frank’s Hot Sauce

I could not wait to take a bite!


For some crunch, I cut up a few carrots (I am proud of myself for choosing them over chips), to dip in some hummus.


I just got this 3 layer hummus from Trader Joe’s yesterday.  The layers are: Roasted Red Pepper, Traditional, and Cilantro.  I love how you can get three flavors in one!


The hummus and carrot plate (there’s about one tbsp of hummus on there).

Ready to eat!


Back to work now… yay! (joking, not really excited).
