I love eating burritos. But carbs always make me feel weighed down. When my refried beans and veggies are wrapped in a big wheat tortilla, I end up feeling really heavy. And when it is 80 degrees outside, I do not want to eat anything - especially not heavy stuff.
But burritos are my favorite. Refried beans, tomatos, onion, lettuce, and anything else we have in the fridge! I didn't really want to eat those ingredients with a spoon (that just seems gross). And of course, tortillas and tortilla chips are out of the question (carbs, remember?)
Somehow I came up with the idea to scoop up these beans and veggies with...more veggies! We had a bag of baby spinach leaves in the fridge. So I grabbed those, spooned some burrito ingredients onto the leaf, and ta-da! A tortilla-free lunch!
Isn't this cute?!
I thought this was so good! (My sister even liked it so you know it was good!) You barely even taste the spinach; it just gives it the extra something that it needs! It's not messy and the best part is - it's FUN to eat. I was really sad when I ran out of spinach leaves. This is definitely something I'll have again.
Oh, and guess what! Awkward. A 14 year old boy walked up to me in the store today and asked for my number. He even called me hott. Ummmm no thanks. I must look young!!
Anyway, I'm always on the hunt for new tricks to eat more vegetables! Got any ideas? :)
