Over the New Year holiday, we traveled to Idaho to see some friends. Wanting something healthy for lunch while on the road, we figured our best choice would be a Subway sandwich, so we waited until we were hungry and started watching the signs indicating the fast food choices at each exit. We passed exit after exit without a sign for Subway, getting hungrier by the minute. Finally we decided we would take the next exit and just do the best we could with whatever food choices were available.
Well, amid the few fast food establishments, I saw a Good Earth health food store and suggested they might have a deli, so we stopped there. We didn't find a deli inside, but they had some pre-made wraps in their refrigerator section. We each chose a spinach wrap with turkey and cranberry, which we ate in the car before continuing our drive. Maybe it's a good thing we were isolated in the car, because it sounded like a scene from What About Bob as we moaned in pleasure over our food. Mmmm mmm mmm. Mmm. Mmm.
The wrap tasted far better than any Subway sandwich, and the bonus: it was made with free-range turkey, and organic veggies. It opened our eyes to the option of "fast food" at health food stores, so the last couple weeks while out running errands we've headed to Whole Foods for healthy, made to order, sandwiches at their deli.
