fullsizerender-80

These days my “Sunday Funday’s” consist of sleeping in, going to the gym at my leisure, and a perfect blend of laying around, cooking, and eating. These taco wraps are super easy to make and absolutely delicious. I whip them up on Sunday evenings for dinner, and then will make extra to add to brown rice for work lunches. Eating healthy doesn’t have to be super complicated, it can be fun, and delicious (not the mention the way it makes you feel) I hope everyone ejoys this recipe, as I try to keep things simple and easy.
