I made it to Ohio!
You’re probably wondering what the heck I’m doing here since my brother is overseas. Well, Ohio is the “halfway” point from North Carolina and Iowa, where my parents are at. I’m spending a couple of days visiting Ohio and then my parents are coming up for the weekend. Oh, and I’m stopping in Detroit for a night on Wednesday and then coming back to Ohio before my parents get here. I can’t be this close to Detroit and not visit. That’s just silly because I love that city.
Anyways, I’ll continue my road trip post tomorrow.
Instead of stopping at restaurants like I normally do on road trips, I wanted to pack healthy wraps for the car ride. Stopping at restaurants takes up time, it’s overpriced, the food is rarely fresh, the healthier options rarely exist, and I won’t even begin to talk about the chemicals in it.
I decided to make turkey wraps because they’re easy to pack, they last a while, and it’s my favorite lunch meat. Even though I’m on a mini vacation, I plan on eating really healthy and working out all week. I haven’t been able to workout because of my kidneys and now that I’ve been doctor cleared, I can go at it! I’m pumped for this week.
*1/2 pound fresh turkey slices, *1/2 red onion, *1 medium cucumber, *1 green bell pepper, *1 teaspoon garlic powder, *1/4 cup light cream cheese, *4 cups shredded lettuce, *1 medium tomato, *6 slices turkey bacon, *90 Calorie Italian Flatout wraps.
**You can use any wrap, lunchmeat, or veggies that you wish! Make it your own.
Mix the cream cheese and garlic powder together. Spread the cream cheese mixture onto the wraps. I left a couple of them without cream cheese just in case someone didn’t want it on there, but the cream cheese is my favorite part.
Top the cream cheese layer with sliced tomato, cooked turkey bacon, bell pepper, and cucumber.
Add about a cup of lettuce onto each wrap.
Add a slice or two of turkey onto each wrap.
Roll the wraps up tight.
Cut the wraps into thirds and put them in a road trip container. You can wrap them individually in tin foil to make them single servings. They stay together pretty well if you don’t overstuff them. If they’re flimsy, use a toothpick to keep them together.
The wraps were so delicious. I would take them over fast food stops any day. I made them the night before and put them in the fridge before the trip. I put a side of mustard in the container for dipping. I think I’ll start making these and keeping them in the fridge all the time.
What is your favorite road trip food?
