Do you meal prep? I wouldn’t say I do to the extent of others, but I definitely do prep some things ahead each weekend. For the most part, I do not prep more, because I cook new all my new recipes for the blog on the weekend, and then eat everything all week long. Lucky me!
But if you are looking to get started with meal prepping or want to try to prep a few items, this recipe would be a great start. You can cook the chicken and prepare the salsa on the weekend and store in separate containers in the fridge. Then when you are ready for dinner all you have to do is wash the lettuce and assemble the wraps for a no cook meal perfect for a hot day like today! This is a great way to start to dip your toe into meal prepping. If you find yourself getting home from work each night exhausted and famished, meal prepping will help you to cut down on the time it takes to make dinner on a weeknight while still allowing you to stick to your healthy meal goals.
