So I signed up for a 5k 4 days ago because I am awesome like that. But no actually I just wanted to be chased by zombies for some sort of fitness reason so it sounded more legit. You see, it's a ZOMBIE 5k. As in zombies will stumble after me while I run 3.1 miles to the quarantine party where beer gardens and food trucks await me. Can you say Jenny's dream come true?!
But anyways in the interest of being healthy I've started a month long 5k training plan and amped up my healthy eating. For example yesterday my dinner was a big plate of brussel sprouts. I know. I spared you an entry on that. But this recipe is golden! Drum roll please....
BURRITOS! but healthy burritos :)
Normally I make burritos with the following:
Whole Wheat Tortillas (Guerrero)
Brown Rice (Mahatma, dry in a big bag)
Lots of Mexican shredded cheese
This recipe cuts down on the cheese and is my first stab at a long-time food goal of mine, cooking quinoa! I love rice so I've always wanted to try this. It was really good! Kind of like a grainier cous cous. For this I used:
1 whole wheat tortilla
1/8 cup dry quinoa
1/4 cup Low sodium black beans (safeway)
1 tbsp Frontera salsa double roasted jalapeno (yummm)
1/8 cup shredded mexican cheese
Just cook the quinoa in a rice cooker with 2 parts water, while waiting prepare tortilla with beans and measure out the cheese. When the quinoa is done, heat the tortilla with beans for 30 seconds in the microwave. Add the quinoa onto the tortilla then put the cheese on top and cook 30 more seconds. Add seasoning to taste and enjoy!
It was sooo yummy too. I even ate 2 of them and I am so full I won't eat again for hours and hours. Yay healthy carbs :)
I wanna add avocado next!!
BTW total calories with these brands was 316 per burrito :)
