You won’t believe how amazing these 5 Spice Asian Pork Tacos are, especially when they’re wrapped in whole wheat high fiber wraps. Healthy, filling and even better as leftovers!

Eastward-Ho!! We’re packing up and heading out to the Palouse this weekend for our second wedding anniversary! Also, has it been two years?! Ben is completely over the moon excited about this weekend back home, especially this time of year with harvest in full swing.
Since we are eating our way through the house so we don’t leave a bunch of food in it over the weekend, I made us some 5-Spice Asian Pork Tacos for the week. And when we ran out of shells, I ate the rest as a salad! Win!
While Ben is busy packing, I will be devouring this in the corner and avoiding the chaos…which is a first because I’m the one who is usually having an anxiety attack about not leaving on time, line-right now, and having everything in a bag right this second so we can go-go-GO!!
I’m so fun to travel with… Lucky Ben.
When it comes to travel, and well being anywhere – I was raised that if you weren’t 10 minutes early, you’re late. I try to apply the same tactic to my travel where I’m always at the airport 2 hours early, always the first to arrive to meetings, show up to appointments 20 minutes early.
And let me tell you, Ben loves traveling with me. I’m a peach. *sarcasm* Ideally, I throw everything I can into bags, toss it into the car, get in the car and go. What it turns into is me throwing everything I can into a bag, toss it in the car, start pestering him to see if he’s ready yet – to which he usually finds something completely unrelated to traveling to do around the house and then I’m left fuming, and the cycle continues.
But THIS time, he’s doing it all. And that’s fine by me. He’s making road trip snack lists, asking me what laundry I need done, and taking care of it all. He must realllyyyyy want to go home for the weekend.
But I sure can’t blame him. I’m excited, too. Two years ago, I was driving over to the east side of Washington with my best friend and a car full of wedding stuff, ready to marry the man of my dreams, and spend the rest of my life with him. Two years later, I can still say with certainty he (and Huck, let’s be real) are the two best things that have ever happened to me. We are a little family, and I couldn’t imagine it any different.
These tacos really take a turn for the healthy with the tortilla wrap! I gave up on flour tortillas long ago and really only eat them when I’m out at a restaurant. Ben and I have tried a few different whole wheat tortilla brands and finally found La Tortilla Factory, Low Carb High Fiber wraps are what we like. They don’t fall apart like other brands that we thought were dry and crumbly. And they are only 80 calories a piece compared to 200 from one flour tortilla! This is by NO MEANS a sponsored thing – it’s just what we love and how we keep those little healthy changes in our daily lives.
