Make lunch fun again with these Thai Peanut Wraps!
It’s never too late to try something new. I’ve mentioned in recent posts how I took up curling just last year. I didn’t grow up curling. Heck, I didn’t grow up anywhere near ice. But my wife and I stumbled across our local curling club, and now we’re both hooked on the sport. We tried something new, and it worked out well. Granted, I now have some random aching joints and bruises that I never had before. Good thing the curling season is coming to a close. I’ll just spend the summer nursing my injuries so I’m ready to go again in the Fall!
Speaking of trying something new, did you guys hear about Ludivine, the bloodhound in Alabama? Back in January, her owner let Ludivine out to take care of her business…and she ended up running a half-marathon. The race course ran past the farm where Ludivine lived, and she apparently decided she was in the mood for a jog.
For the record, she wasn’t a terribly active dog. She just saw people running and decided to join in. And she kept going for 13.1 more miles. Ludivine crossed the line in 7th place. Not too shabby for a lazy bloodhound out for a morning jog. Talk about trying something new!
I’ve never been much into running, so you won’t find me running a half-marathon anytime soon. Curling several nights a week and taking care of 4-month-old Robbie is quite enough for me right now. But I did try my hand at some new flavors for these Thai Peanut Wraps. My wife loves Thai chicken salad, so I used that as an inspiration for these wraps. To keep these wraps easy to make for lunch, I left out the chicken. (You could easily add the chicken in there to create a hearty dinner wrap, though.)
These Thai Peanut Wraps are loaded with tasty ingredients, but the icing on the cake (sorry for the bad food pun) is the quick peanut sauce. Just drizzle this flavor-packed sauce on top of the wraps before rolling ’em up, and you’ve got one heck of an awesome lunch. I sent Laura to work the other day with one of these wraps for lunch, and I’m thinking her coworkers might be a tad jealous about that one. Sorry, Laura’s coworkers!
We always keep a stash of Flatout wraps on hand, and I opted for the Sea Salt and Crushed Black Pepper variety for these Thai Peanut Wraps. With 12g of protein in the wraps alone, these wraps will keep you feeling full all afternoon. There’s nothing worse than craving a snack and then seeing that it’s only 2:30pm.
Who says lunch has to be boring? It doesn’t take long to whip up something fun and then roll it into a wrap. Plus, wraps are just so much more fun to eat. It might be the same exact ingredients as a regular sandwich, but lunch goes from average to epic once you roll it into a wrap!
So I challenge you to try something new soon. It doesn’t have to be today. But maybe by the end of next week? Perhaps you go out to pick up the morning paper and wind up running a half-marathon. Or perhaps you just mix up your usual lunch flavors. Whatever it is, try something new…and then come back and tell me about it!
