My Favorite Vegetarian Lettuce Wrap Lunch/Brunch πŸ˜‹β€οΈπŸŒΊ

GreatMindfulness profile image

I felt hungry and decided to have my lunch early today. 😁 I made my simplest protein butter lettuce wrap with my mixed vegetables. πŸ˜‹

Ingredients are: diced water chestnuts, mushrooms, ginger (great kick for taste in this combo), cilantro, carrots, bell peppers, red and green onions. All sautΓ©ed in olive oil, garlic sauce, wine vinegar, one teaspoon of mushroom soy sauce and peppers.

Dessert: Oatmeal cookie with Jasmine tea.

I love having this combination of veggies with diced vegetable ham. It is light and fulfilling at the same time. ❀️

Hey Koko, your salad looks and sounds a great combination of lovely flavours so with your desert even better. 😊

Thank you Jerry, it’s a typical Southeast Asia salad dish. πŸ˜ŠπŸ™πŸŒΊ

Amazing lunch you haveπŸ‘Œ. So many healthy and tasty ingredients. Your posts inspire me to keep eating healthier and to be happierπŸ€—πŸ™β€. Have a great day!😁

Thank you Zazen. πŸ˜ŠπŸ™ I think you can make this one for yourself as they are gluten free. Yes, you can switch up ur meals to make them more fun now. Have a good rest of the day! πŸ€—πŸ™β€οΈ

Thank you Happenstances. πŸ˜ŠπŸ™ yes can roll with lettuce or rice wrap rolls too πŸ˜πŸ‘

dang that looks super nice Koko. That's a very pleasing array of colors. If that's a meal for you, that would be a decent snack for me πŸ˜…πŸ˜…πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£

Thank you Kainan. πŸ˜ŠπŸ™ Whatttt I’m still full cuz it’s packed with good protein. I probably just gonna have some avocado and yogurt later. πŸ˜‚ You eat with your eyes! πŸ€£πŸ˜‚πŸ€£.

I'd finish that in like less than 10 min and will feel hungry again an hour later

Hmmm your metabolism should be good then but I doubt you will feel hungry after this in an hour, no way. πŸ€£πŸ˜‚πŸ˜…

yeah maybe for you it's fine but me I need more calories and it doesn't seem like it has all that much

You just need good proteins to curve that hunger. Well I’ve always been in healthy weight of 110lbs and been eating like this so it works for me. What’s your dinner? πŸ˜‹

so I had Spanish rice chicken and Caesar salad

did you julienne those carrots yourself?

I bet you enjoyed your dinner. I’m not Caesar salad fan. πŸ˜‚ No, those are already chopped, organic also. I got it from Trader Joe’s

ahh that's a time saver. Those are a hassle to do

That’s right. The rest I like dicing them, kinda therapeutic for me. πŸ˜‚

Yeah I totally get that. It's a great feeling chopping them up and seeing them all uniform

Yes put on your best track of music and start dicing, that’s joy right there! 😁

I go for the country but like not sad soul crushing country music, no the happy kind about drinking and finding true love and stuff, even though I never drink and I haven't got a clue about that second one 🀣🀣🀣

No comment on the country music. You enjoy yourself πŸ€£πŸ˜‚πŸ‘

What's protein butter? πŸ˜•

Eats shoots and leaves, it's the way you've read it. Vegetarian protein, using butterhead lettuce for the wrap.

Subtle_badger in reply to PandQs

I'm more confused. Where's the protein?

Or is there TVP or something similar?

PandQs in reply to Subtle_badger

There is mention of vegetarian "ham" which may be that.

Subtle_badger, the post is self-explanatory if you would take time and read through.

I wasn't trolling, I really didn't understand it. And I not only took the time to to read it through, I entered everything on the ingredient list into cronometer to see if there was protein hidden in the veggies. I didn't go back to the last sentence because I assumed the ingredient list was a list of all the ingredients 😳

Cronometer

Now Subtle_badger, would you please so kind and enlighten me what is β€œprotein butter”? I don’t think I included butter in my ingredients list either. πŸ€”

Aweee definitely I’m sure you will enjoy it so much just like I did. πŸ™ƒπŸ˜‹πŸ‘

Most definitely 😁

I'm glad you typed "definitely" this time Kitten-Whiskers - if you watched Line of Duty recently on TV you'll know that "definately" as in your previous comment, was the clue to finding the mysterious villain of the series "H" 🀣

Oh yes, the mysterious "H"

I loved the line of duty 😁

Hi Ex-Pat, that is exactly the book I was referring to πŸ˜€ I think the phrase is now very well known as a reference to how things can be read to have different meanings, depending on the punctuation.

Brilliant πŸ˜‚
