Chicken, ham, lettuce & salsa sambo



Skip the bread and fill up on the insides of a delicious sambo by wrapping your sandwich ingredients in a crispy iceberg lettuce leaf. This one is light, cool and crispy – just right for summer.

Tip: Pack the ingredients into separate containers and prepare the sandwich fresh for lunch at your desk or in the park.

1 piece grilled chicken breast*
1 slice virginian ham
1 whole iceberg lettuce leaf
1 tbsp tomato salsa
1 tbsp guacamole
lemon pepper

Rinse and dry the whole lettuce leaf. Layer the chicken, ham and salsa inside the leaf, season the fillings with lemon pepper, wrap and eat fresh.

* leftovers from the previous night grilled chicken parmy.

A-tuna-frittata (what a wonderful phrase!)

This is a great protein breakfast modified from FED (Fitness in an Evolutionary Direction: a blog about paleo living by a guy called Tony. FED has some great paleo cuisine and motivating takes on fitness).

And the Lion King twist, well that was me. Yeah, I know, thanks. 😉

200g-ish of chunk tuna*, drained
3 eggs
3 tbsp baby spinach (stems and leaves), chopped coarsely
1/2 cup soy milk
Fresh ground black pepper
2 tbsp homemade salsa**
1 tbsp olive or macadamia*** oil
1/2 avocado, sliced
1/2 lemon

Add eggs, soy milk, spinach, tuna and black pepper in a bowl and stir to break up the yolks and mix coarsely.

Heat oil in a medium frying pan over medium heat.

Add the tuna and egg mixture to the frying pan. Approximately distribute the solid bits evenly throughout the mixture. Cover, and let the cook for about 5 minutes.

When ready to serve, divide the portion into halves in the pan and serve each half on a plate with salsa, avocado and a quarter of lemon.

A-tuna-frittata! (no worries)

Serves 2.

* I used one 95g tin of basil infused tuna and one 95 g tin of chilli infused tuna which really give the dish a lift. Also, to be good to our planet use Fish-4-Ever or SAFCOL brand tuna. These brands offer Australian customers canned tuna caught using a sustainable fishing method. More info here.

** I made my own homemade salsa from this Taste recipe and it was fantastic. Great for corn chips and dips. It’s best when served chilled.

*** I like macadamia oil. I dunno why. It’s just different,
