Keto Low Carb Sandwich Lunchbox

Keto Lunchbox Idea

A lot of people these days are hopping on the low-carb bandwagon. And that means when lunchtime rolls around, a lot of people are eating salad. Don’t get me wrong, I like a nice salad for lunch myself – but salad every single day can start to get a bit old.

But if you’re trying to bring a packed lunch to work, what’s the alternative? You can’t make a sandwich without bread, can you?

Actually, you kind of can – if you turn it inside out. Instead of a filling of cold cuts, cheese, and veggies between two pieces of bread, flip it around and put those cold cuts on the outside.

  1. Hey the first recipe includes peppers but the printable doesn’t?

    1. 5 stars
      Hi Stephanie. Those are optional and are added to taste. Some people prefer not to have them. I added a note to the printable to clarify. I hope you love them!

    Have you had your blood pressure and your cholesterol checked lately? Years ago, there was something called the Adkins Diet, which was basically similar to Keto. Well, Dr. Adkins (who invented that diet) actually died of a sudden massive coronary. Anyone with ANY common sense at all, knows that excessive amounts of fat & sodium are not good for you, since they lead to heart issues. I believe that a word to the wise is sufficient (or perhaps not).

      Hi Angelina!
      I totally get it if this sandwich idea isn’t for you. I certainly don’t suggest anyone eat this everyday for lunch, it’s meant as an idea for some thing new to pack for lunch.

      I like quick lunch ideas like this!

      Actually science and research shows that the high levels of fat on this diet are not harmful if done right. Anyone on this diet should do research first so as not to fail. Eating monounsaturated fats and omega 3s are very healthy for you.
      As for the sodium issue, going low carb also gives you an insulin dump which could cause a sodium deficiency. So anyone on this diet SHOULD take on more sodium.

      As with any diet, yes it could be harmful if done wrong. But, anyone with ANY common sense would do their research before diving in to anything like this.

    4. Angelina, the keto diet is very different than the Adkins diet. I went full keto for six months, lost 70 lbs, I no longer have a fatty liver, I am no longer pre-diabetic and my cholesterol and other blood works are better than they’ve ever been. Please do some research instead of spreading ignorant hate about the keto lifestyle.

    5. Actually Dr. Atkins DID NOT die of a sudden massive heart attack. At the age of 72 he slipped on an icy street in New York outside his office and suffered a head injury he never recovered from. Get your facts straight.

    6. Dr. Robert Atkins died from accidentally falling on ice and hitting his head that left him comatose. You may want to actually do some research before you make rude comments and also learn how to correctly spell “Atkins”.

    7. Dr. Adkins really died from slipping on ice and hitting his head. Per Dr. Eric Westman, who studied under Dr. Adkins. The supposed heart attack is a myth.

  4. Thanks for this post, the listed nutritional information, does that include the apples in the picture? I’m assuming yes, just curious, thank you
