This carries through to our philosophy about lunch. If we paid for ski resorts lunches every time we ski, we’d be broke.
Instead, we carry the humble, yet delicious, veggie burrito.
The BEST Ski Lunch (Hiking, Camping, Biking Lunch), Ever
Here’s why the veggie burrito is the best lunch ever.
- It doesn’t spoil. Beans, rice and cheese burritos aren’t going to make anyone sick if you carry them with you for a few hours — even in summer.
- It is easily portable. Wrapped tightly in a tortilla, which is then wrapped in foil and placed in your pocket, the veggie burrito can be smushed, crushed and flattened, with no discernible reduction in deliciousness.
- It’s inexpensive. We are talking the most basic of ingredients.
- It’s healthy. Use brown rice and whole wheat tortillas, and you’ve got an extra-nutritious lunch on the go.
How To Make Veggie Burritos
Ingredients: whole wheat tortillas, canned black or pinto beans (or cook dry beans overnight in a crock pot), cooked brown rice, shredded cheddar cheese, salsa, garlic, chili powder, green onions, avocado, cilantro, olive oil
Obviously, adapt this recipe to suit your family’s taste. Tortillas stuffed with most anything (peanut butter and jelly!) make a good skiing, hiking, camping, biking lunch. Just avoid items that can spoil if left unrefrigerated.
If you prefer to heat up your burrito before eating, place it in a pocket with a hot hand warmer for a few runs. That’ll do it!
As for where to eat your lunch, this depends upon the resort. Some resorts are very strict about prohibiting outside food. Others are not. Some provide on-mountain picnic tables or brown bag areas in lodges. Wherever you eat your burritos, take your time and…
