When meal planning, it’s important to not only choose things that are easy to prep and make and save you time, but to also choose things that complete all of your nutritional needs so you can keep going with your busy schedule! Wraps are convenient because they’re easily portable and easy to make. You can prep them ahead of time by chopping your veggies, making any sauces or spreads, and cooking up any proteins or other ingredients you’re putting in them. Then, once you’re ready, just wrap it all up! These high-protein options also make sure you get plenty of plant protein!
