I don't know about you but I love me a good sub sandwich! The bread, cheese, meat and all the veggies makes my mouth water. Honestly though my waist line does not always like the list of glorious things, so a healthier way to make a sub like lunch is to cut back the bread. This is a low carb high protein lunch that also fills the veggie category. Super simple and clean and fast, so you don't get too much of a hunger attack
half of a cucumber de-seeded
1 57 grams mini hummus container (or 2 tablespoons of your preferred hummus)
1 32 grams of monterey jack sliced cheese
2 slices of turkey breast
2 slices of prosciutto
salt and pepper
one medium sized tomato sliced up
Cut the cucumber length wise and take a spoon and scoop out all the seeds and watery parts from the center.
Spread the hummus in the center of each cucumber side, place the cheese on top, then the meat. Sprinkle with a little salt and pepper and serve with a sliced tomato on the side.
This yummy lunch is a total of 369 Calories and has a total of 30 grams of protein in it. It gives you that boost you need to tackle the afternoon without the bloat of a regular sub sandwich (which by the way I totally still eat sometimes, everything in moderation right?)
