Veggie Burrito Bowl

Uncategorized Aug 05, 2021

 Nutrition can be confusing with all the different diets and research out there that says saturated fats/fruit/grains/meat/dairy…etc, are ‘bad for you.’

We take an individualised approach when helping our clients with nutrition as there is no ‘one-size-fits-all’ diet out there, especially when we are trying to heal our bodies.

However…There is one type of food that ALL researchers and nutritionists agree as being extremely beneficial: VEGETABLES! You can’t go wrong if you fill-up the majority of your plate with good old, wholesome veggies.

Here’s a delicious meal that can help you UP your vegetable intake.

Servings: 2-3

  • 1 packet (25g) Burrito spice mix
  • 1 tin (400g) diced tomatoes

  • 1 small tin (125g) corn kernels
  • 1 onion, roughly chopped
  • Half a red & green capsicum, roughly chopped
  • A handful of Lettuce sliced thinly
  • 1 tomato, cubed
  • Spring onions, sliced
  • Bunch coriander
