If you've found yourself enamored with burrito bowls thanks to fast-Mexican joints such as Chipotle, you're not alone. Although they may seem like a healthy alternative to everything else on the menu, fast-food burrito bowls can easily average around 1,000 calories or more, depending on all the ingredients you might want add. Consider toppings such as guacamole, cheese and sour cream, and the calories add up quickly. This healthy make-at-home version substitutes quinoa for rice, has plenty of veggies, and is gluten-free, vegetarian and vegan-friendly.
if you're craving some extra protein, you could add a little grilled chicken on top, too. Add some chopped romaine lettuce and you've got an amazing salad without adding a ton more calories!
This is a great make-ahead recipe for lunch or dinner; just dice the avocado immediately before serving so it doesn't turn brown.
