Healthy Burrito Bowl

Who doesn't like a little Chipotle from time to time?!  Of course, I am human and think their burrito bowls are awesome!! BUT have you noticed their portion sizes???  Good god! And it's not just there, its really everywhere you eat out. The portion sizes is what gets everyone into trouble. You don't REALLY need to eat everything on the plate they serve you, but being human, if it's in front of you and it tastes the way it does, most people don't have the control to stop when they are full. At least at home, you have more control of the serving size put in front of you and have control of the amount of oils that are used in your food. Try this delicious burrito bowl recipe... and stay away from the fattening restaurant meals (OUT of this ARIZONA HEAT!!!).
Healthy Burrito Bowl

  • 3-4oz Grilled Chicken breast (or meat of choice)
  • 1/4 Ripe Avocado
  • 1/4 Cup Black Beans (low sodium if possible)
  • 1/4 Cup Seeds of Change Quinoa and Brown Rice Mix
  • 2 T chopped red onion
  • A few slices of fresh jalapeno- optional depending on how hot you like your food
  • Dollop of Nonfat, Plain Greek Yogurt- OPTIONAL (great substitute for sour cream!) 
  • Hot Sauce of Choice (I used Tapatio)
  • 1oz Cheddar or Feta Cheese (optional)- I didn't use any!
Cook rice & fish (I grilled my chicken- marinated in mustard, Siracha, and spices). Heat black beans. Mix rice, chicken, onions, and beans together. Slice up half an avocado and top with a dollop of greek yogurt and hot sauce! Enjoy!
