When you are a family of five and EVERY member of the family is a picky eater, healthy eating can be a lot of work. Add in food allergies and you’ve got a recipe for spending your entire life in the kitchen.
As much as I enjoy cooking, I have no desire to miss out on fun with family and friends to spend the entire day slaving away in the kitchen.
Although we both work from home, I really don’t want to make the time to cook in the middle of the day. So, like those who work outside the home, I am always looking for healthy meals that the components can be put together ahead of time.
Lately, we’ve been enjoying these amazing Buffalo Quinoa Wraps!
Though you could certainly make these when you want to eat them, they are very easy to prepare ahead of time. Simply cook the chicken and quinoa and toss with the buffalo sauce. Store that in one container. Chop your veggies and toss with the vinegar. Store that in another container. When it is time to eat, warm your tortilla (I used the small Udi’s Gluten Free tortillas) spread with yogurt or mayonnaise and add the chicken, veggies and cheese. Volia – you have lunch with about five minutes of prep time! (You could probably use the bigger wraps, put them together and roll them up in foil too but I haven’t tried that.)
You guys know I’ve been working with Udi’s Gluten Free for a while and I’m a big fan. My love for all of their products is genuine, and I especially love the wraps. The key to them is to heat them up in a skillet – they get brown and puff a bit – and turn utterly delicious. You may be able to accomplish this in a microwave too. We don’t use the microwave so I really don’t know.
Thanks to Udi’s for sponsoring this post and allowing me to bring you another gluten free recipe!
