As I write this recipe, I’m already on my 10th day of my 6 week challenge of eating only Ideal Protein recommended diet , eating no bread, pasta and everything else with gluten. No fruits, No alcohol and combined it with a bootcamp 5x a week. So far I have lost 7lbs already and I can’t wait to show you the before and after!
Anyhoo this recipe was one of my favourite easy to prep meal growing up. I also tried using Walden Farms Mayo as my based for this recipe but it was a complete disaster, So I tried re doing it with a real mayonnaise. I didn’t like the consistency. A zero calorie Mayonnaise. Who can say no to a 0 calorie?so I went crazy and gave it a try. But then again this is a review post and I’ll be posting more about their product. I’m not really a big fan of Zero calorie/Fat free products as I believe their not real food just like fast foods and totally made in the lab.
Just looking at the photos right now makes me wanna cry! I miss bread! hahaha
WHAT WE NEED:
- 2 boiled eggs ( make sure to take out the shell! )
- 2 tbsp chopped green onions
- a pinch of salt or two
- a pinch or two of ground black pepper
- a tbsp of Mayonnaise
- a handful of cucumber
- 2 small cherry tomatoes
- fresh cut onions ( just a little bit if you’re planning on going on a date after eating this)
- 1 leaf of Iceberg lettuce
- 2 slice of wheat bread ( I use Villagio Wheat Bread ) its so soft and lower calorie count than the others.
Ok let’s start. In a bowl (whatever you can find is good) put your boiled eggs,0 calorie mayonnaise,salt ‘n’ pepper,chopped green onions and mix everything till it look like a nice spread.
Cut your veggies, what I usually do is I cut all my vegetables ahead of time ( Sundays and Wednesday) so not only it saves me some time I get to finish all my vegetables intake too.
I don’t like my sandwich toasted , I like the chewy & soft gluten feeling that melts in my mouth. Now put your Iceberg lettuce on one side of your sandwich.
2 scoops of your egg ( this mixture makes two, you can either serve for another person or keep it in your fridge)
your cucumber, tomatoes and onions.
Now cover it and press it! I like it when everything’s intact.
Look at that beauty!
You can serve it with your favourite chips or sliced carrots if your watching your calorie.
Couldn’t help but take a bite already.
