I don’t know whether to think of this Paleo sandwich replacement as a canoe, a boat, or a taco. But whatever the case, it’s a great crunchy little injection of fuel that lasts nicely until dinnertime. You can use whatever lunch meats you have or leftover meats – just pretend it’s a sandwich, and add whatever you’d add to a sandwich.
The only thing to look out for is fillers in lunch meat. You would seriously be surprised. Or not, I guess. It’s kind of depressing. Our favorite lunch meat brand right now is Prima Della, and Wal Mart of all places sells it. The big wrapped up chunk of turkey that they slice my meat off of says “no fillers.” I trust that about as far as I could throw that giant wad of turkey meat, but I guess it’s got to be better than the brick right next to it from another brand that says, “Ham,” and then in small print says, “35% water added/flavorings added/this is a ham and water product.”
Here’s what went into my Paleo meat boat (apparently I’ve decided on boat). The boat is an outer piece of hearts of romaine lettuce. I try to always keep hearts of romaine on hand – they’re good chopped up for salads, and awesome for Paleo Tacos too! Then I added two thin slices of turkey, two thin slices of salami, two slices of avocado, 1/4 of a small chopped up tomato, some sun-dried tomato basil feta cheese, spicy mustard, and a small diced fresh basil leaf.
