Lunch Option 2: Thai Chicken Wrap
Restaurant Meal: Au Bon Pain Thai Peanut Chicken Wrap―$5.79
Homemade Alternative: Thai Chicken Rollups―$2.39
Make this simple swap and you’ll cut calories and sodium―and trim your food costs. The restaurant version of the Thai Chicken Wrap is fine when it comes to calories (about 530 calories per wrap), but contains a whopping 1,340mg sodium. That’s more than half of the maximum daily recommended intake of sodium. The homemade alternative saves you more than $3, cuts 200 calories, and reduces sodium by almost half.
