HEALTHY CHIPOTLE BURRITO BOWL
My easy healthy Chipotle inspired recipe
In this post, I’ll be sharing my easy healthy Chipotle inspired burrito bowl recipe with you! This is one of my favorite dinner recipes at the moment.
I just posted a new “What I eat in a day” video on my YouTube channel, where I showed you how I make this recipe – But I still wanted to type the recipe up on the blog here for you so that you could follow it easily.
This recipe was definitely inspired by Chipotle’s rice/ burrito bowl – but I feel like it’s even better (in my opinion)… Maybe that’s just cause I make it exactly how I like to make it.
This recipe is gluten-free, dairy-free and refined sugar-free – and it’s full of healthy nutrients, good whole carbs, good protein and healthy fats!
I hope you love it as much as I do!
