Lunch

3 times to wrap up your lunch

I’m pretty sure basically every type of vegetable is packable, ‘wrapable’ and stackable.. So you could even make a bunch of wraps at the beginning of the week. Wrap them up and bring them to work the next day. And the day after that, from Monday ’till midweek. Easy and unique. Or so the speak. Wrap it up with these 3 recipes. Enjoy your workweek ๐Ÿ˜‹.
