We are on the go all day. When it comes to fueling ourselves well, major barriers continue to be time and convenience. You know why you end up in the drive-through? Because it’s the easiest option. So, when it comes to eating, just like anything else, you have to prepare ahead of time to set yourself up for success. Don’t be fooled by online posts featuring insane kitchens with food scales and endless rows of Tupperware. We are talking about meal prepping for normal people. Follow these simple tips to start dipping your toe into prepping your meals ahead of time. No food scale needed!
Wraps are a great way to cook ahead for the week because they are a cinch to reheat. You also can make mini versions of any wrap recipe to make them easier for kids to hold.
Set tortillas, chicken and bell peppers aside. Combine all other ingredients, whisk until smooth. Mix in chicken until coated. Divide chicken evenly on tortillas, top with bell pepper. Wrap up tortilla. Eat immediately warm or store in refrigerator up to four days and reheat in microwave.
