How To Eat At Home On The Go Week 5 - Wraps

Welcome to Week 5 of How to Eat at Home on the Go, a series where I offer my tips, tricks and recipes to eat at home even when your family is on the go for school, sports, church, work and anything else that comes up. You can check out the first three weeks of the series here - Week 1, Week 2,Week 3 and Week 4

This summer we discovered the joy of wraps.  Don't know why it took us so long, but now that we have discovered them, they are a favorite.  On our busiest nights, wraps are a great way to eat quick and make sure we get protein and veggies.  My trick is grilling or baking my chicken earlier in the week, so all I have to do is heat and assemble when we get home from practice.  However, I also have a favorite quick wrap that can be whippped up on the spur of the moment.
