I've fallen for the wrap
(This post may contain affiliate links)
First came the Black Bean and Veggie Burritos, which were not only great, but helped get me during finals week when I needed healthy grab and go lunches.
Then, my husband made Tuna Avocado Wraps for our swap in May, which proved eating well on the doesn't have to be expensive or take a lot of time. He made, around ten in no more than an hour one evening, start to finish.
Inspired, I went forth
My goal was something with meat and veggies, and lots of flavor. Ingredients that weren't exotic and would be able to spend time in the freezer, all without a lot of trips to the grocery or hassles in the kitchen.
The recipe lends itself beautifully to whatever vegetables you love to roast. The chicken can be made separately, using some for wraps and tucking the rest away in the freezer for the times when you need to pull out a protein source to add to your meal.
