Meal prepping is a great way to save money, give yourself more free time and keep track of your calories - and if you're someone like me with random food in your fridge, its a great way to clean out the old to make way for the new.

The only downside to meal prepping for some people is then you have to eat the same thing every day over and over and over again. I’m one of those people where I seriously hate eating the same thing for more than one sitting. My fiancé can but I seriously cannot stand it. With this method of meal prepping, we both have plenty of options to choose from so that neither of us get bored.

All of this stuff together only cost me $90.78! We both are used to spending about $50 a week on eating lunch, and with meal prepping these wraps, we'll have enough for two people for two work week's worth of lunches.

I made sure to get sale items and store brands whenever I could to save some money. Some of these items I already had in my pantry too, like the sauces, and some of this I won’t use all of just in this application, so in addition to having everything I need for meal prepping, whatever I don’t use, I can save for other recipes.

Hummus Chicken


Chipotle Ranch Chicken Wrap


Shredded Buffalo Chicken Wrap


Shredded Carolina BBQ Chicken Wrap


I really hate eating the same thing more than one day in a row. Leftovers are the bane of my existence, which is why I’ve shied away from meal prepping in the past. But with this many options, I’ll have a decent rotation of wraps that I can eat for lunch. I’m splitting these lunches with my finance and from the looks of it, we’ll both be set for the next couple weeks when it comes to tasty lunches.

Don't forget you can customize your bento boxes to YOUR SPECIFIC TASTES! If you don't like pepperjack cheese, get something YOU PERSONALLY PREFER! That's the magic of meal prep, you can make it however works best for you!
