Back in 1993, I traveled to Antwerp, Belgium.   While I was there, I visited the home of Peter Paul Rubens.  Not Pee Wee Herman (Paul Reubens) –  Im talking about Sir Peter Paul Rubens who was a famous artist born in 1577 who was wildly famous for his paintings of religious scenes and…..

Has anyone told you lately that you have a RUBENesque figure?

Definition of Rubenesque. : of, relating to, or suggestive of the painter Rubens or his works; especially : plump or rounded usually in a pleasing or attractive way a Rubenesque figure.

The only thing I want to be Rubenesque is my Sandwich!


When living a low-carb lifestyle, this really isnt a good idea.      Oh, how I love the Reuben;  The juicy corned beef paired with the pickled briney taste of the kraut with all that delicious thousand island dressing and melted swiss between some Toasted Rye.   Are you kidding me?   My mouth is watering.

SO, How can you do the Reuben, when you cant have the Rueben?


What you will need:ruben makings

  • Corned beef or Pastrami
  • Saurkraut
  • swiss cheese
  • thousand island dressing


Start by laying out a piece of sliced meat.

spoon some sauerkraut on the meat and top with some thousand island dressing and swiss cheese.

Roll this up and top with more swiss cheese.

Pop it in the microwave for 1 minute and PRESTO, you have a Reuben Roll Up.   The perfect snack or meal to cure that need for that damned sandwich you have been craving!

This really is a great bite.  The thousand Island dressing is the only ingredient with a carb in it, and it is so low….  I promise it wont make you Ruben-esque!
