I really like Jimmy John’s wheat bread that is available with all their sandwich selections. It is thick slices and filled with lots of seeds…my favorite. When I order my sandwich (The #1 Pepe) I leave off the mayo and tomato and add cucumber and sometimes Dijon mustard. I then ask for a mayo pack so I can add my own mayo when I am ready to eat and also saves points because I control how much mayo goes on my sandwich. Lastly, when I am ready to eat I take two halves and put them together for one giant and eat half the amount of bread. Together all of that is 12 points.
I decided to try the Jimmy John’s Unwich, which your favorite sandwich wrapped in lettuce instead of is served on bread.
I ordered my #1 Pepe with no tomato and mayo and added just the cucumbers. I made sure to get my mayo packet on the side. I’ve noticed since I don’t have mayo or real butter that often that when I do, it feels like a real indulgence. Looking up the nutritional information, my Unwich is 5 points and then my mayo packet is 3 points. But, I only used about half my mayo packet this time around so I counted the total Unwich as 7 points. I ate my Unwich with carrots, celery, and dip and also had some grapes.
I have to say, I did miss the bread. I generally like lettuce wrap burgers and chicken sandwiches but in those cases, the meat is very flavorful. Lunch meat doesn’t pack much flavor. The parts where I could taste the mayo was quite delicious. I also didn’t feel like my Unwich held me over as long as a sandwich with the bread would have. Since this was low in points, I would order an Unwich again. It was still a really tasty sandwich and I saved points in the process.
