Meat Wraps

This is a great thing for teenagers or college kids, it's easy to make and take. Great for hiking, or bicycle trips, just about anything. I make these for Anthony's lunch and he loves them..he said they were dank. (This means something really great). His friend said he thought they were dank too, since he wanted another taste.

Just heat the wrap first to make it easier to roll. They are light and easy to make and the choices are endless. Here is a very basic wrap using good fat (avocado). Once you make these you will go back and do it again and again. I love to put sprouts, tomato, and all kinds of other stuff inside.

Ingredients:

  • 1 package of GF rice tortillas
  • 1 package of thinly sliced turkey (or meat of choice)
  • 1 Avocado pitted and squished with a fork into a smooth paste
  • 1 beautiful fresh dark green lettuce leaf washed and dried

Directions:
  1. Take out one of the rice tortillas and place on a plate and heat in the microwave for 15 seconds.
  2. Take it out and lay two pieces of sliced turkey to cover the tortilla.
  3. Smooth some mashed avocado (or guacamole) over the turkey.
  4. Lay one or two more turkey slices over the avocado and add the lettuce.
  5.  Now roll up the long way and slice at an angle in the middle of the roll.
  6.  Serve. Or wrap in plastic or zip lock and keep in the fridge or take it for lunch.

*You can use any meat, including sea food but keep it refrigerated. You can use mayo, mustard of choice, any greens, sprouts, a little salt and pepper, etc. Use your imagination. Try it vegetarian or vegan! Keep your food ingredients clean and use organic when ever possible.

Note: Salad dressing like vinegarette, tend to soften the rice tortilla quickly so either use sparingly or use something else in place of a liquid topping. Things like a sour cream consistency work best. Update: I just went through some old volumes of Living without and their August/September 2010 issue has a Lunchbox Adventure for kids, meals to pack and go. Page 44.Check it out, great ideas!
