I used to love blt pinwheels!!

Growing up, I remember we would eat all sorts of “pinwheel” type tortilla rolls and I loved them. One of my favorites was BLT pinwheels. We’d take a tortilla and roll up some cream cheese, bacon, and lettuce. So good! And yes, I realize it’s not really a BLT since I wouldn’t eat the tomato… it took me a few decades to learn to enjoy them, what can I say?

Why I love a good low carb blt without bread

Most sandwich type lunches involve a sandwich, wrap, or other source of bread along with a carbohydrate side like chips, crackers, fruit, etc. In my early 20s I started to notice my blood sugars were just really difficult to manage when I’d eat more carbohydrate at lunch time, so I learned to make some delicious lettuce wraps and could then fully enjoy the carbs from things like chips and crackers. Side note: Am I weird that I prefer chips and crackers to bread? Anyways…

I am all for eating bread, don’t get me wrong there. And there is NOTHING wrong with enjoying a sandwich with bread AND a carbohydrate side. However, there’s also nothing wrong with wanting a BLT lettuce wrap with avocado instead 😉
