Spread both slices of bread with cream cheese. Place the lettuce leaf- cheese side up, then top with rest of the veggies and sprinkle black pepper powder. Now place lettuce again then cover with bread slice cheese side down. Cut into half – wrap in plastic wrap or send it in sandwich ziplock bags. Pack it with choice of fresh fruits, I packed grapes in a ziplock.
