After discovering Zambrero’s, I created Healthy Avocado Burrito Bowls at home. These are a nourishing & delicious alternative to the traditional meat and cheese filled burritos! They are loaded with salad veggies, beans & wholegrain rice which means they are full of fibre and will provide you with long lasting energy that will stabilise your blood sugar levels and keep you feeling full. They are high in protein but also vegan, gluten-free & dairy-free. Plus they are amazingly delicious with the tasty spices and creamy avocado dressing.
