Raise your hand if your lunch is either take-out or the second half of the PB&J the kiddo couldn’t finish. Meal planning is hard enough. Having quick and healthy lunch options are key to beating that afternoon slump – to help you get through those last couple Zoom meetings or surviving carpool.
These black bean wraps from FIT4MOM’s Body Well Nutrition Guide & Recipe Book are a favorite. This recipe was originally created by the FIT4MOM dietitians to offer a healthy lunch option for moms in the Body Well Coaching group and are perfect with a tall glass of pineapple, lime and mint water (also from the recipe guide).
I am definitely a fan of having prepped food in the fridge, and this mix is good for a couple of days, especially if you sprinkle some lime juice on the avocado beforehand. Then just grab your wrap of choice, toss in some filling, and you’re good to go!
