Beautiful Burritos

The beauty of a burrito is you can put anything you want in it. Keep the ingredients healthful, and you have a nutritious, low-cal snack or meal anytime! I keep these ingredients on-hand for a quick burrito when I'm in a hurry (or when the kids are eating chicken nuggets).  Honest to goodness, you don't need meat or dairy here for a delicious, satisfying food with protein, fiber and calcium.  I can eat two, oink!


Whole wheat flour tortilla (make the switch to whole wheat, your body will love you)
Black beans or vegetarian refried beans (rinse canned beans to get some salt off)
Vegan Mozzarella cheese (yes! it tastes good)
Spinach (for calcium, yay!)
Salsa, cilantro, hot sauce etc.
Avocado slices (for good fats that your brain needs)

Warm up the beans and "cheese" in the micro before adding toppings.  Fold, roll up, how ever you want to pig out!

You can find Vegan Mozz at Whole Foods or Sprouts. Thanks Katy!
