Any "lunch meat" mentioned is low-sodium, or sodium free and no-nitrates- the best I am able to find between Whole Foods, Sprouts, and Trader Joe's- my main stops. I also buy organic whenever possible, so that is implied as well- I usually update this post w my phone so the descriptions will be super short and sweet- comment ANY time for more details or recipe specifics and I will be happy add them!

First experiment w a "samich roll up" (out of tortillas) chicken breast, avocado, cream chee & string chee on wheat grain bread. First attempt to flatten bread and roll- FAIL. (see top right square) Then I put the bread under some Saran wrap and rolling pinned the tar out of it- MUCH BETTER!! We were on the road for lunch today so I also brought crackers, a squeezie, a plum, water and milk.
