If you’re someone that feels like lunchtime is one of the pitfalls of the day when it comes to healthy eating, then it’s time to turn to lunch wraps! Wraps are the perfect option because they are so easy to make, grab, and go. You can even prepare them a few days ahead of time to save even more time during the week.

If you’re meal prepping, we suggest prepping the filling at the start of the week, then assembling your wrap when you’re about to eat just to make sure the tortilla doesn’t get soggy.
