Ever catch yourself grabbing bites off your toddler's leftover lunch plate, or shoving turkey slices and cheddar bunnies down your pie hole while trying to get lunches out for crazy kids? How about being so busy getting kids/husbands/self out the door you completely forget your own lunch (take out, again). #guilty. Anyone else?! Whether you're a stay at home mom or a working mama (or both- points finger at self!) meal prep seriously makes crazy #momlife days all the easier! Lunch is what is going to get us through those crazy days with ease (read: energy!) so a balanced mid-day meal is crucial. These Meal Prep chicken burrito bowls are the perfect super simple make-ahead meal prep lunch to last you the whole week (or at least a few days!).
