Healthy Beef Burrito Bowl

I am all for cutting out the bread from the sandwich-or in this case cutting out the wrap from the burrito and filling in all that extra space with more nutrient dense ingredients in its place. Almost all commercially bought tortillas or wraps are packed with so many nasty additives like sugars, gums and thickeners and things you just wouldn’t even know how to pronounce. My biggest piece of advice I can give to everyone when choosing foods like breads, wraps and rolls is; don’t eat it, or just read the back of the packet. If you cannot understand half the ingredients how is your body supposed to understand how to process it? I say stick to whole familiar foods and you cant go wrong! Start now and replace your regular burrito for this burrito bowl.

  • 100g grass-fed beef mince
