This weeks lunch

If you're tired of sandwiches and want something good for lunch, look no further!  I've been making myself these little beauties for lunch all week:

On Sunday morning I threw two large, frozen chicken breasts in a crock pot.  I sprinkled the top with a pack of taco seasoning and poured a jar of salsa on top.  I cooked it on low for about 8-9 hours.  You really can't screw things up with a crock pot.  Sunday night I shredded the chicken.  I measured out three ounces of chicken and half a cup of drained and rinsed black beans.  It easily made five containers with a little bit left over.

I use these wraps to construct my masterpiece (7 grams of fiber!  7 grams of protein!):


When lunch time comes around I heat the bean/chicken mixture for 30 seconds.  I put a 50 calorie, pepper jack string cheese on the wrap.  Dump the black bean/chicken mixture on the wrap.  Microwave for 20 more seconds.  Top with a quarter of an avocado.  Voila!  You have a very filling, well balanced, 350 calorie lunch.
