Burrito Bowl Salad - Recipe Below
My go to salad lately has been this burrito style salad bowl that I actually created by accident from leftover burritos. Turns out it was so good I have it almost every day now. Its really simple and quick to make and tastes delicious. When making salads, people tend to throw lettuce, tomato and cucumber and call it a day. The key to a tasty and filling salad is a balance of healthy, low GI carbohydrates, healthy fats, fibre and protein.
This salad is high in
Protein - For muscle building and helping us to feel fuller for longer
Fibre- Great for gut health, helps us stay “regular” and keeps us fuller for longer
Healthy Carbohydrates - Slow releasing carbohydrates that give us sustained energy throughout the day.
Healthy Fats - monounsaturated fats are very beneficial for you health. They can help to reduce “bad” LDL cholesterol and increase levels of “good” HDL cholesterol, which ultimately can reduce the risk of heart disease.
As well as Iron, Vitamin C and many other beneficial vitamins and minerals.
Mixed Lettuce, chopped finely
1/2 Tin Black Beans, drained and rinsed
2 Tbs Burrito Spice
Baked Sweet potato (I pre prepare this)
1/4 Red onion
1 Tomato, chopped finely
1. Mix black beans and burrito spice in bowl and add to chopped lettuce
2. Guacamole: Mash Avocado, add red onion, juice of half a lime, salt and mix
3. Add sweet potato and tomato to salad mix, squeeze lime and toss
4. Add guacamole to top of salad and serve
I like to pre prepare everything in large batches, so when I make everything all I have to do is chuck it all in a bowl and it takes no less than 2 minutes - 2 hours ago
