On The Go Meals

Let's talk about on-the-go meals. Not just meals that are easy to make, but ones that are super-fast AND portable. There was a conversation in the LDW group recently about breakfast ideas for the DrHs. If your family is anything like mine, they like to grab the first thing they see in the fridge and run out the door.  Here are a few more ideas for grab-and-go meals:

Chipotle Chicken Tacos
1 can diced tomatoes with garlic and onion
1 can chipotle peppers in adobe sauce (cut open and take out most of seeds)
Combine in blender divide in 6 portions; 1 in a large fry pan and 5 in quart size freezer bags.
Use 2- 3 cans of chicken and heat. Serve with black beans, onions sour cream, cheese and white rice.

Kabob Wraps
Pita bread
Kabobs or any other pre-cooked protein (meatballs, chicken, etc)
Yogurt sauce
Roll everything up in tin foil and store in fridge.
*Veggies/sauce can be stored separately and added fresh.

Breakfast Sandwiches
Whole wheat english muffins or  thin bagels
Cook one egg for each
Add meat you want (sometimes we do Canadian bacon) and a slice of cheese
Let everything cool, assemble, wrap them individually in paper towels or wax paper, and stack them in a large tupperware container.

Breakfast Burritos
Whole Wheat wraps
Scrambled eggs
Meat of choice
Shredded cheese
Black bean salsa

Breakfast Muffins

Also just another quick tip: Store pre-boiled eggs in refrigerator, grab and go as needed.
