No/Low Carb Meals

southernitalian | Jan 11, 2011 01:27 PM

It's not terribly chowish, but I have had hardly any carbs since 1/1. I didn't have the guts to weigh myself and I still haven't but I can definitely tell I'm losing weight. We were expecting snow on Monday (and boy, did we get it) so I went out on Sunday and stocked up. I got sandwich makings for the family, among other things. I'm working from home and have been craving a reuben all day and since I know I have the makings for one, I had to improvise. I rinsed some sauer kraut and heated it in the microwave in a big mug. On top of that I added some thin slices of pastrami and on top of that, some sliced gruyere. Back in the microwave until it was all melted, then a dab of dijon.

It was delicious and easy, satisfied my craving and kept me carb free. I'd love to bring it to work (when we ever get dug out), but it would stink up the break room. What are your favorite carb free meals?
