When you travel with a cooler, it is important to plan ahead on your meals. I made sure to slice my tomatoes and pull my lettuce and package before I set out on my trip. I also chose the pre-cooked bacon, because that takes all the mess out of preparing bacon. Finally, I chose to buy the “squeezable” containers of mayo and mustard. The cooler I use has wheels, which basically allows me to pack and travel with more than I really need…

As you can see in this video, the recipe is pretty self-explanatory. I like to use Pita bread with my cooler meals because it is a perfect way to package my sandwich with minimal mess, (remember, I have kids who love to make messes). There are many healthy varieties of Pita bread and the one I chose on this recipe was the whole wheat.

With a few simple steps, you can have the same simple BLT & Pita Sandwich that my family enjoyed on this beach trip. I hope you like the video. Enjoy!
