Keto Italian Rollups
With the addition of keto in our lives, finding foods that are high in fat, moderate in protein, and low in carbs has been a challenge. We’ve had to be creative with our meals, and those days when I want a gluten-free sandwich are no longer an option. I recently stopped by a sub shop out of desperation one evening and got a lettuce wrap filled with various deli meats. It was meh, but I was starving.
My all-time favorite sub sandwich has always been an Italian sub. Something about that combo of meats and provolone with a simple oil and vinegar drizzle is just perfect. And now I can eat it any day of the week and have no guilt, plus it fits in perfectly with my current keto needs.
The assembly is very simple, just layer the meats in a biggest-to-smallest order, slather on some mayo, add some cheese (if you’re primal), and add the toppings that suit your tastes.
Roll all of that up tightly and secure with a toothpick and dip in a oil/vinegar combo with some Italian seasoning. These make perfect school lunches, as well as an on-the-go meal if you wrap it up in plastic wrap.
High Fat – Keto Lunch Option
These roll-ups really help us get in our macros for the day, packing 20g of fat per roll (including the oil/vinegar dip), 10g of protein, and less than 1 net carb. Of course the carb count might go up just a bit depending on what extra toppings you add (like the peppers), but it’s still very much within a keto range. And for me (an average female), 1 roll is all I need for lunch most days.
