In an effort to create better and healthier lunch boxes. We’ll be presenting a series of lunch box hacks recipes that we find from all over the web. The second one we will feature is a healthy version of Wendy’s chilli. Taste just like Wendy’s chilli, but in what we think is a little bit healthier form.
