Carrot Cake Sandwich

What are your favorite portable meals?

Sandwiches are one example of an easy and portable meal component, because they’re not too messy, and they don’t need to stay cold. But one can only eat so many plain-jane peanut butter sandwiches before it gets old. (Oh forget that; I could eat pb sandwiches every day for the next hundred years and not get sick of them.) One day last week, for the sake of variety—and because experimentation is so much fun—I strayed from the pb-sandwich road, with this:

Carrot Cake Sandwich

  • Shredded carrot
  • Raisins
  • Crushed walnuts
  • Cinnamon
  • Cream cheese, such as Tofutti OR coconut butter or Cheesecake Mousse
  • sweetener of choice, if desired

Close it all up in a whole wheat pita and you’re good to go.

    Oh, that sandwish looks great! My favourite on-the-go meals are almost-instant rolled oats with dates and nuts (just add boiling water) or a big bowl of homemade museli.

    Sorry to hear of your e-mail woes. We had similsr issues at work recently and I know how frustrating it can be. Although, when it was all fixed I received 32 ‘lost’ e-mails from my husband that made me smile. 🙂 I hope your new e-mail address will work better for you.

    I rock a PB&J a lot. It’s such a low maintenance and filling lunch. I keep a box of Larabars in my desk at work for easy snack. They help me stay out of the vending machines! And jars full of nuts and dried fruit are good too.

  4. Aimee says

    Oh dear, Katie, something tells me you still wouldn’t have fit in with carrot cake pizza ;). Better to stand out, though!

  5. vegangal says

    katie you are so gorgeous! i already told you that a lot of times but i have to say it again in case you forget :). and your sammich yum yum! well all your food really.

  6. Justine says

    I try to keep some vegetables already roasted/cooked/chopped/what have you so that I can throw together a salad if need be.

    Chia pudding seems strange to me still, but I’ll try (almost) anything at least once, so who knows?

    That looks so good! I’m always shy about taking my own food into places, but I guess people with allergies would have to do it?

    You might want to change your email on your About page also, I know that’s where I always go to look for them. 🙂

  8. Inspired says

    I have to say, usually I’m content to drag along my handy pb&j. But after reading this post, I might have to deviate from my routine. Things like this are why I read your blog!

  9. Chocolate-Covered Katie says

    Thanks! I didn’t even think of that!
    And lol if you ever go to Cici’s, you’ll understand why I don’t feel weird bringing my own food. Pretty much anything goes in that restaurant. Kids running around, there’s an arcade, no waiters (so no one wondering why you’re not eating off the menu, etc). It’s definitely not gourmet hehe.

  10. Kara says

    I definitely think it’s better to be prepared, and so I always have snacks on hand. Fruit, nuts, bars, what have you. I have an entire grocery store in my purse :).

    Oh man girl, that sandwich looks AWESOME!!! YUM!

    Cici’s…not a fan. now, I love pizza. But Cici’s…not so much.

    I’m all about a PB and J sammie! I could eat them every single day!!!!

  12. Kate says

    I’m with you! My main on the go, no refrigeration available meal is usually PB&J, carrots and an apple!

    If there’s refrigeration/microwave, it will be soup or yogurt instead of a sandwich!

  13. Katie says

    Is it just me, or are there a lot of Katies in the blogworld? Well I just found your site and am so happy I did! So hello from yet another reader named Katie!

  14. Kate says

    Lara Bars & Raw Revolution Bars are my usual stash in the tote bag if I’m on the go. But a green smoothie in a travel mug is a big favorite for me too.
