The Complete Package(d Lunch)

…don’t be fooled I don’t always pack such a healthy lunch…to be honest I’m kind of proud of this one.  I think my Mom would be proud too 😉
But I need some help figuring out what type of spread I should add to the wrap next time to give it just a little something extra.
What do you suggest?
Pictured above:
-Turkey, cheddar cheese, and lettuce wrap.  I used an Ezekiel 4:9 wrap which is made from freshly sprouted organically grown grains…and it is flourless!
-Peach Yogurt
-Organic granola bar
-AM: Mixed nuts, Emerald Almond Cocoa Roast, Yogurt Covered Raisins
-PM: Grapes

    I recommend mayo and paprika, or Sabra roasted red pepper hummus to give it an extra kick. Whole Foods also sells what’s called Lemonaise and Chipotleaise which are mayos with lemon and chipotle. B and I make a weekly run to Whole Foods if you ever want me to scoop some up! 🙂

      The mayo and paprika sounds wonderful and I am intrigued by the Lemonaise and Chipotleaise! Last weekend I stired up some Thousand Island dressing, which has me feeling very can do. Maybe I could try my hand at these as well…

        Check out: http://www.qbfoods.com/lemonaise.html

        Maybe by seeing some of the ingredients you can figure out the right mixture! I’ve had both the lemon/chipotleaises and lemon is my fave!

          This is perfect! It lists all the ingredients! One of the things I liked so much about making the Thousand Island was that I could make it in a smaller quantity and I didn’t waste half the bottle on a couple of sandwiches…this sounds good enough that I might be tempted to eat the whole bottle…which might be worse 😉

    Hummus is great as a spread. Roasted Red Pepper maybe?

    • FM March 22, 2011, 1:41 pm

      Bridgett, that does sound like it would give it a kick. I could also pack some pita chips with extra hummus as a snack…

        Red pepper hummus and bagel chips are one of my favorite lunch sides. I look forward to eating them in my lunch. I believe udandi also uses hummus for some of her wraps.

          I do like hummus in my wraps, and like Bridgett mentioned roasted red pepper. It is a favorite with turkey.

    A bit of horseradish. Real horseradish, not sour cream waved in the general direction of horseradish.

    Or lebneh – yogurt that’s had a bunch of the whey strained out. Easy enough to make at home – just tie up a bunch of yogurt into a cheesecloth and let it drain overnight till its about the consistency of soft cream cheese. (I usually put a couple of layers of paper towel in a colander, set the yogurt in, fold the paper towel over, and put a brick on top. Set the whole thing in a big bowl, and you can save the whey for baking too.

    Trader Joe’s has a sweet-hot mustard that would be great on this as well.

      I do need to make a trip to Trader Joe’s…it is just a haul for me…I do have some Woeber’s mustard that the Lin got me hooked on that might be good to try in the mean time…Mmmm!

    sort of what trashmaster46 said. i mix herbs/scallions/garlic/whatever is around with a container of greek yogurt. throw it in a colander and put that over a bowl in the fridge overnight. use the remaining yogurt as a spread. delish.

    • FM April 12, 2011, 8:11 pm

      I am really going to have to give that a try it sounds wonderful…if only I had made it to the store this weekend and had some turkey!! Next week!
