Zucchini & Bean Burritos

Burritos freeze wonderfully for an easy grab-n-go lunch option if you’ve got access to a microwave at work or school. Packed with fiber and protein, you can be confident this meal will keep you going through the afternoon.

Tip: Burritos can be frozen and reheated individually in the microwave, working in one-minute increments and rotating the burrito each time.
