I love sandwiches made with flour tortillies.
Thing is, thats just as bad as bread unless other then using small shells and only one really stuffed with fillings.
Small soft shell is 110 - 90 calories large ones 300 calories.
They make whole grain shells ....... tried them YUK
I like tuna , lettace, sweet pickles & juice, celery seeds, and tablespoon of light miracle whip in a soft shell ......... like a taco. Try it without miracle if possible.
Wow! I had no idea they had so many calories

Low calories and great as a snak.
Make sure you get a brand thats crisp ........ if they aren't, you wont enjoy them.
Always room for pears, apples , grapes, water mellon, grapefruit, and vegetables.
I even have a small bowl I keep in the truck with a few bags of apple cinnamon oatmeal .......... if I,m where there is a microwave , its kinda handy sometimes especially if its cold out. Try the berries and cream instant oatmeals sometimes ...... its pretty good.
Its not only for breakfast .......... but I bet I eat it at least 5 times a week for breakfast , cheap , fast, and good
I buy oatmeal when its on sale .......... cases of it

im gonna buy me one of those coolers and put it in the middle section of the front side between driver and passenger seat. i like the tortilla idea loaded with veggies, now that i work in the markets there should not be an excuse to not eat healthy since you can buy every thing right there and then. Before when i worked in restaurants i quite often did not have the opportunity to go to a market and bought what ever the restaurants had, now there is no excuse. thanks for the info.
I will take a bullet for my Veto LC tool bag!
That might seem like alot but it what you put in the tortilla that runs it up.

I know a guy that packs a salad with chunks of cheese and hard salami or maybe tuna. I tried it for a change and liked it.
Another guy always packed a hot pepper to put his sandwich in gear.
I considered stowing away a microwave on a job site I seemed to be around a lot. A hot sandwich seems to taste better.

Ive been munchin on black forest, genoa salami, mozza slice, mustard (or dressing of your choice) on nice fresh italian bread latelty. very tasty dont need alot of meat either. bascally an assorted sub without the other meat. cappicola I think they usually put on it. the bread can make the diffewrence.
I reject your reality and substitute my own.

Soup or chilli or salad for a change of pace (this is from someone who eats sandwiches every day for lunch, and loves 'em).
Most people do not understand that good bread (or a good Italian roll) makes the sandwich a lot better.

Do like one of the techs I work with and smoke cigarettes for lunch. He’s already had a mini stroke.
A good salad (dressing seperate) is not too hard to pack. Add some lean turkey or grilled tuna.
On a sandwich add guacamole instead of mayo.

"or" maybe the soup thing? I used to throw a can up on the dash in the morning and by the time I was hungry, it was all heated up and yummy
