I have had many people ask me how I eat on P4 and I have to say its similar to P2 and P3. I really just concentrate on eating healthy. Do I spluge from time to time, yes! I thought it would be helpful to just share for what I am eating and document any side effects from it. I am a little more simple and just make stuff up as I go along. I do not own a recipe book and do not research recipes, I am however great at throwing things together. Yesterday I shared my Taco Salad and today for lunch I went in and threw together these lettuce wraps. I am sure there many different ways you can make lettuce wraps and make them work for any phase.
3 Large lettuce leaves
2 Pieces of Pepper Jack Cheese (or cheese of your choice)
1 Medium sliced tomato
Salt and pepper to taste
Lunch meat or meat of your choice
I laid the lettuce beds open and stacked the meat, cheese and added thin sliced tomatoes. I added salt and pepper. The pepper jack cheese gives them a little kick. I did not add any sauce as the tomato adds enough juice to make it just right. I hold the lettuce leaves together with a toothpick and add the extra tomato as the side. If you wanted to make a lettuce wrap P2 then make the meat chicken or beef, no cheese and add tomatoes. This is a quick way to eat healthy without a lot of thought or time and its delicious. I have found lettuce a great tortilla and bread replacement.
My camera went on vacation with the kids as you can see my last two images have been with my cell phone. I will replace them when the camera comes home 🙂
I am still a little confused about what to eat and what not. These wraps sound great and I am p2 so I don't think I can have lettuce and tomato unless I should be considering the tomato as a fruit??? I have heard and read you do not have 2 veggies in one meal. Can someone address this please
I count tomato as my fruit when mixing with lettuce in p2. Click the phase 2 category in the right side bar and all p2 recipes will be there. Some recipes have instructions to apply whether in p2 or p3. thx
