If you follow my blog, you may be wondering why all the posts, I am usually a little more spread out? Well, we are in Vermont for February vacation. Matt and the little boys are skiing again and I am hanging out with Lucie and Noah. Remember, Noah had that horrible ski accident and luckily he is recovering nicely. I just didn’t have the heart to leave him at the ski house and head to the mountain with everyone else while he was left home to study for mid-terms. So why not catch up on my magazines (Paleo, Oprah, Real Simple, More) and my blog!
Matt and I did go snow shoeing this morning though after he made a not so paleo breakfast for everyone, except for me of course.
If you know me well, you know that I don’t have a huge appetite, which leads me to be a MEAL SKIPPER. I have had to make a really big effort to plan meals if I am going to be out all day, which happens a lot. When I don’t, I walk in the door late in the afternoon to start making dinner and my snacking gets a little out of control. So, I try to remind myself of this even when I am in a hurry, which is always and take this version of lunch with me at least a few times of week.
Prep Time: After the market, 5 minutes, when you need to grab it 30 seconds – 1 minute
Cook Time: None
3 ounces of turkey – I like In house turkey from Whole Foods. It is expensive, but worth it in my mind. Nothing but turkey and water. Use whatever kind you like, though.
- 1 package of seaweed – I buy these at Whole Foods or Trader Joes, they all taste the same. You can buy a small or big pack (see further explanation below)
- a few organic carrots – these taste delicious even totally plain and unpeeled
- When you get home from the market, take out your food scale and measure your turkey into 3 ounce baggies. This is the perfect size for lunch especially if you are zoning, and to use up the seaweed package too.
- Place the baggies in the freezer. (so they stay fresh and you don’t need an ice pack)
- When you are ready to leave for the day, grab an insulated bag if you have one, or a recyclable one if you don’t.
- Place the frozen turkey in the bag along with the seaweed pack. If you like seaweed sandwiches, a piece on the top and the bottom, use a large pack. If you like open face sandwiches, use a small pack.
- Wash a few large, organic carrots, fill your water bottle and head out for the day.
Wasn’t that easy????
