Lunch Wraps

Meal prepping and lunch wraps!

Talk about a busy couple of weeks.

I got MARRIED!! Yup, that’s right! J got married, and T was right there helping me down the aisle [and to pee, but that’s a different story]. Now it’s time to get back to reality and that means meal prep!

I thought I would share my lunch meal prep tips and one of my favourite lunch wraps!

Meal prepping is great if you are not a morning person [J] or you start work really early [T] or just are incredibly lazy [everyone]. It’s a great way to ensure you have enough food, but also you don’t have too much and therefore waste [which basically means throwing out money].

Generally speaking, when it comes to meal prep I like to have a balance of lunch, breakfast and dinners planned out. My favourite type of lunches are leftovers from the night before. Sometimes though, I just know we’re going to have a busy week after work, or the food I’m craving is just not conducive to leftover [tacos ❤ ]. For when those weeks come, I do like to prepare lunches so I’m not stuck spending money on the cafeteria pizza [but also the za = life].

ALSO, I hate eating the same thing everyday. So when I am meal prepping for the whole week I make two different choices for lunches.

My favourites are wraps with shredded chicken, avocado, spinach and Ceaser dressing and these wraps pictured at the top!

Mmmhmm… contents are as follows: spicy ‘Jambalaya’ rice, crunchy red peppers, fried sweet potatoes and a bit of chipotle mayo. Sometimes if chicken is on sale, I’ll add shredded chicken too, or pan fry pork chops and cut them into thin strips.

Firstly, cook your rice and prep all your veggies. I slice the red peppers and keep them raw for crunch. As for the sweet potatoes – I slice and fry in minced garlic, salt and pepper. But also, check out T’s great recipe here: Sweet Potato Chunks

Next comes the assembly. Line it up and get it going. 🙂 I wrap it in tin foil and store in the fridge. I usually only make half a weeks worth at a time because a) I switch wrap/lunch option half way through and b) no one likes a soggy wrap.

Note: I leave the chipotle mayo out because my husband [phew that’s a weird thought] does’t like sauces, so I just add it to my wrap while eating it.

Okay, and some people may be fine, but just in case. Here’s the best way to roll your wrap!
