Burritos Are The Fastest, Easiest Way To Tons Of Great Ingredients
Change up burrito night with chipotle sauce and herb seasoning that amps up flavor, nutrition and experience.
Whether you've just graduated from college or are a couple years out, get on track with good eating that fuels your busy days.
It might be easy and reflexive to order out or eat boxed food, but with a few great go-to ingredients at home, you can make food faster and tastier, and quickly late night too. Burritos are the easiest way to get tons of nutrients through great ingredients all at once.
Make burritos a staple of your diet. Keep a few fresh vegetables, beans/refried beans, spice and sauce on hand. When in need of a quick or satisfying meal, with or without a tortilla, when you've got the goods, you're good to go.
By making food yourself you control the ingredients and levels of salt and sugar in your food--it's a better way to stay on target with your fitness goals.
The key to a tasty burrito as good or better than the one you might go out for is the spicing. Spend a few extra dollars for food made fresh by local makers. You will taste the quality and your body will feel the benefit of real food that's higher in nutrient value and lower in stuff you don't need like salt, sugar and preservatives.
With these two shelf items on hand (below) in your cupboard and fridge, burrito night will never get boring.
