Monday: Cucumber Melon Gazpacho
During the summer, we’re all about cold soups. And this refreshing gazpacho is the perfect road trip companion. It’ll stay cool in an insulated container and will be the ideal lunch when you make your first pit stop of the day.
Tuesday: Black Bean Burrito
A yummy loaded burrito is just the ticket to get you through a day of driving. Munch on this cross between a burrito and a chimichanga, which is virtually spill-proof, given that browning it in a skillet helped seal the tortilla. (You don’t want a messy car, after all!
Wednesday: Mango Chicken Salad Sandwich
There is nothing handier than a sandwich when hitting the open road! Prepare the chicken salad and slice the fruit and veggies ahead of time, and you can assemble your sammies once your stomach starts to rumble.
Thursday: Tabbouleh with Sweet Potato, Feta and Currants
The best part about this savoury yet sweet tabouleh is how customizable it is! Pack your salad in a bento box and pair with a protein of your choice: cooked shrimp, chicken, or even a hard-boiled egg.
Friday: Broccoli Quiche
Quiche is a great, protein-rich meal that can also be filled with good-for-you veggies. (We may have snuck in some bacon in this one, too.) Simply let cool, slice into individual portions and wrap them up before heading out the door.
Snack: Sweet Potato Breakfast Muffins
Muffins make a great snack. But what we adore about these muffins, which are packed with sweet potato, oats, bran and pumpkin seeds, is that they are a filling breakfast before hitting the road. They’re so hearty, they’ll make a satisfying quick lunch, too.
