Paleo Fast Food on the Go (and Paleo Guacamole)

Due to a cancelled swim class we decided today to do an impromptu trip to the Los Angeles Natural History Museum with some friends (the Silk Road exhibit!). We planned to leave in 20 minutes. In that time we had to get the kids dressed and whip up a snack or lunch to take with us. We packed in a small cooler some coconut wraps (I had the Paleo Wraps), avocados, some left over chicken strips, baby carrots and a Swiss Army Knife (no time to cut anything ahead of time). Water and kombucha for drinks.

After an eventful but fun museum trip back in the car we filled the wraps with chicken and avocado cut with the pocket knife. If the kids hadn't been like little baby birds opening their mouths and demanding food (fast!), I might have cut small strips of carrot in the mix too but this mama bird didn't have time for that so the carrots were eaten separately. Believe me, it was fast food! And it was easy and mess free to eat in the car too when I folded the end of the wrap before rolling it.

This quick lunch was so easy and successful and it made me think that I should prepare some guacamole for trips like this. We could then have fajitas on the go! Some lettuce, pre-fried or steamed zucchinis and mushrooms would make a nice addition or could replace the chicken completely. Below is a recipe for paleo guacamole. 

Autoimmune paleo, paleo, gluten free, vegan, night shade free
Some don't include garlic or lemon on autoimmune paleo diet so leave them out if necessary.

One Avocado
A clove of garlic
Squeeze of lemon or lime
Sea salt or Himalayan pink salt to taste

Mash avocado with a fork, add chopped / squeezed garlic (I l
ike the Kuhn Rikon garlic press - not paid to say that), a squeeze of fresh lemon or lime and sea salt to taste. Easy peasy!

PS. This would also work as a great dip for the Friendly Crackers.


  1. Thank you so much for introducing me to Paleo Wraps! Ever since we found out about P's tapioca sensitivity, we avoid rice wraps/spring rolls because they usually have tapioca flour in them. I'll definitely be buying these soon!
