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!

    Hi Liezl Jayne,

    I just want to tell you that I really like your video’s, especially the food video’s. I’m just like you obsessed with food.;) My parents always learned me how important it is to eat healthy, so they have always cooked very good and healthy for me and my brother. But in this society there is so much unhealthy food with so much refined sugars and other unhealthy stuff that it can be very hard to always eat what is the best for you. I am eighteen years old and I live in Amsterdam (the Netherlands), so I hang out a lot with friends. When I chill out with them, they always go to the supermarket and buy just what they like, mostly junkfood and candy and chocolate… and I hate it so much because it is not nice to always say no to food, but when I am fair with myself I don’t want to eat all that unhealthy junkfood. But okay, long story short… I just want to tell you that your video’s give me so much inspiration about what healthy recipes can look like. The things you make are never boring and they taste so good.. although I did not make them all.. but it makes me so happy to watch your video’s, because then I realize that it is so easy to make healthy recipes and that you can actually make all sorts of food in al healthy way.. even pancakes (one of my favourites!) and yeah.. I think I have to end this email by now, otherwise it gets to long. But I just want you to know that your videos are the best and I hope that you keep going on with making food videos, because I love them and it keeps me motivated by eating healthy and have a healthy lifestyle at all 🙂

    With love, Sira
