Monday: Turkey Sandwich/Tuna Salad Sandwich , Celery & Peanut Butter, and Cheese

Today’s meal was pretty simple. A good ol’ deli sandwich with some sides. Joel had a whole tuna salad sandwich. I had a half of a turkey sandwich. I used multigrain bread for mine, and regular white bread for Joel’s. Both sandwiches had lettuce, and mine had a little mayo with provolone cheese.

I am not a huge fan of celery, especially not by itself. I know it is “negative calories” or whatever, so I should probably be shoving it down my throat, but I’m not too keen on the bitter juiciness, combined with the fibrous stalk. But, I sure do love peanut butter. I haven’t had peanut butter and celery probably since elementary school, and I was pleasantly surprised! The peanut butter totally masked the celery, I couldn’t taste it at all.

A friend asked if my cheese dries out throughout the week when I prep. The answer is not at all! As long as the cheese is kept in an airtight container, I’ve never had a problem with dryness. Today we had a variety of cheddar, swiss, and mozzarella. They were all great! If you are still having concerns, you can always use individually wrapped Baby Bell or Laughing Cow cheese.

What did you have for lunch on your Monday?
