For many women, the end of August/the beginning of September means one thing….school is back in session – finally 😁. This also means lunch boxes need to be filled and a quick lunch on the go might be a necessity for you with pick-up schedules or your work schedule. One of the easiest to make and easily our favorite to eat “on the go lunch” idea is the Wrap – think lettuce, low carb tortilla, or just meat and cheese! In addition to a wrap, low calorie bread (about 45 calories a slice) is also a great option. Below are some of our favorite combinations. Enjoy!
