Healthy Southwest Burrito Bowl.
I went to Pet Smart during lunch to replenish Lilah’s food. Pet Smart is very close to Pier One. I was smack in the middle of Healthy Lunch Bowl Week. They sell really pretty bowls.
That is how I introduced two new bowls, with gorgeously coordinated cloth napkins to my kitchen which is currently under a ‘new dish ban.’ I think this story went over quite well presented with a fork.
I mentioned Healthy Lunch Bowl Week. This is my fourth bowl creation and it’s one of my favorites. Healthy Southwest Burrito Bowls pack a lot of protein which makes them great for lunch. You’ll sail right through the afternoon without crashing. I like to load my bowls with a base of leafy greens, then incorporate some nice textures and flavors.
I decided an Avocado Ranch Dressing would go well with this bowl, right until I reached for our jar of Homemade Buttermilk Ranch Dressing that was no where to be found. Caesar will work just fine. I have a new favorite in Avocado Caesar Dressing. Just a little goes a long way when teamed up with fresh salsa and a squeeze of lime juice. Delish!!
