Truth be told, I don’t think I sat in a normal dining area once this week for lunch.  Having multiple meetings and consults during the week forced me to eat in my car  A LOT. Below are a few things I prepped ahead of time before scrambling out the door:

  1. Turkey and cheese roll up. Take 2 slices of lean deli turkey and place it on a small, fajita sized whole wheat tortilla.  Spread a thin layer of horseradish sauce over the turkey.  Sprinkle shredded, 2% milk cheddar cheese on this layer.  Roll up and pack in a bag.  Pack 10-15 baby carrots and ½ cup green grapes in a bag to go with it.  And don’t forget a bottle of water!
  2. Peanut butter on whole wheat. Spread 2 Tbsp. natural peanut butter on whole wheat bread and top the peanut butter with another slice of bread.  Enjoy an apple and some celery sticks on the side.
  3. String cheese and Triscuits. Just like it says- pack 2 low fat Mozzarella string cheese sticks and 12 Triscuits in a bag.  Pack 1 cup of baby carrots and cleaned/dried blueberries to pop in your mouth at the red light.
  4. Hummus & veggies in a pita. Pack ½ of a whole wheat pita with 2 Tbsp. of your favorite hummus.  Add a chopped cucumber and spinach leaves between to the pocket.  Pack 10-15 grape tomatoes to go with it and a bottle of water.
  5. Nutty trail mix. Mix ¾ cup Cheerios, ¼ cup almonds, ¼ cup walnuts, ¼ cup sunflower seeds and ¼ cup raisins or dried cranberries in a bag or reusable plastic container.  Grab a 4-6 oz. Greek yogurt and a spoon and run for your car!
