Everyone is always telling me that they find it really hard to cut down on bread. I can understand why, its so easy to make sandwiches and take them to work, make some toast in the morning and buy that crusty baguette on the way home. None of these things are wrong, in Paris you will find me filling my face with fresh bread and croissants like there is no tomorrow! However, what does matter is what you put on the bread (lots of butter/mayonnaise/cheese possibly ??….probably not so good for you every day!) Which is why i LOVE lettuce cups, and you can easily take them to work (just pack the filling ingredients separately) and they stay nice a crispy.
You can put anything in them really, this was just something I rustled up last week at home.
