Mean & Clean Burrito

It’s no secret I have foods I go absolutely ga-ga over. We all do.

In no particular order here are the things that make my taste-buds do the happy-dance…

  1. Pizza (sadly I’ve recently been widowed by my fave place : (
  2. Wine (red and white because there’s just too much good stuff to be “just red” or “just white”
  3. Burrito’s (specifically carnitas)
Obviously I don’t eat this stuff all the time, but there’s my Kryptonite.
Now, the other thing that totally makes me happy is good-for-you food that tastes good, because most people’s perception is that healthy means “blah”.
So here’s one of my Kryptonite foods done healthy for you to sink your teeth into…The Mean & Clean Burrito.
Whole grains, lean protein and crunchy veggies make this a recipe that you’ll come back to time and again. Serve with a side of your favorite salsa.
