On my quest to fill my brain with new recipes, I am specifically trying to incorporate as many "clean" meals as possible. I am a long way away from becoming vegetarian, and do not have any plans to outwardly pursue the lifestyle. But the more knowledgeable I become about food sources, I can feel myself naturally having an aversion to meat.
When my friend, Cat, told me that she made some vegan "Black Bean Burritos," I was immediately intrigued. Partly because my favorite cuisine is Mexican, but also because it came from a book titled, "Eat To Live," by Dr. Joel Fuhrman. This book has popped up a few times in conversations, so I was familiar with its content.
Long story short, I made them for dinner today, and they were pretty frickin tasty. Even better, they satisfied my always-existing burrito craving, AND I didn't feel like a pile of shame two hours later.
As usual, I made some tweaks to the recipe. 1.) I used a whole avocado, and 2.) I made mango salsa (primarily because I had a mango that was about to go).
Give it a try, and let me know what you think. Or, let me know if you have tried some clean recipes too. Thanks!
