It’s the season to get yourself outside — so why not bring a tasty, healthy lunch along to fuel your adventure? Our friend Shanon at The Curvy Carrot created this delicious portable recipe featuring our Organic Baby Spinach:
I like my exercise outdoors, if at all possible; I love walking and hiking. Recently I’ve discovered cycling, and I think it just might be "one of my sports." We’ve got some pretty awesome bike trails around Milwaukee; with the feel of the wind on my face, I can bike 20 miles without even thinking about it. I take big, deep breaths and let go of stress.
Cycling reminds me a little of the calm I felt in Earthbound Farm’s fields (click here or here for pics). There was blue sky, mountains to one side, and field after field of lush, vibrant greens. A little heaven on Earth, seeing exactly where my food was coming from…smelling and tasting it, too…and knowing that it was being grown in a completely organic environment. It felt alive. Clean. And very, very healthy. That’s how I feel on my bike rides.
Sometimes I pack a lunch to enjoy on the go. But there are rules: it has to be easily portable, there shouldn't be utensils, and keeping it cold shouldn't be an issue. A wrap is usually the simplest thing to make ahead of time to snack on along the way.
For this wrap, I made a spread with white beans, avocado and Earthbound organic baby spinach to add great depth of flavor (makes a great dip on its own, too!). I topped it with some bacon-flavored seitan, more spinach and some fresh tomato, plus that protein powerhouse quinoa, an easy add-in that keeps my energy levels up on long rides. I like to think of this wrap as a healthier, vegetarian version of a BLT!
