The Burrito: Nutrition bundled up in an edible blanket.

In Uncategorized on May 4, 2010 at 4:54 pm

Just recently, I declared the burrito my favorite meal.  I love it because it includes almost all of the food groups:

  • Grains (whole wheat tortilla, whole grain rice, corn)
  • Vegetables (red & green peppers, spinach)
  • Fruit (tomato slices, salsa)
  • Milk/Fat (sour cream)
  • Meat & Beans (black beans)

It is really easy to put together a burrito whether you are cooking at home or you are at the dining hall.  Follow my dining hall friendly recipe for a hearty, healthy, and scrumptious meal:

1 whole wheat wrap (found at the sandwich station)

1/4 cup of whole grain rice (found at the stir-fry station)

1/4 cup of black beans (found at the sandwich station)

3 tomato slices (found at the sandwich station)

2 tablespoons sour cream (found at the condiments by the grill station)

2 tablespoons salsa (found at the condiments by the grill station)

A sprinkle of corn (found at the salad bar)

Onions, red and green peppers (found at the salad bar)

Fold in the ends & roll it up! ENJOY =)

*Optional* Place in microwave for 30-45 seconds.
