Healthy Southwest Burrito Bowl with grilled chicken, pinto beans, brown rice and lots of veggies.

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.

Healthy Southwest Burrito Bowl loaded with protein and delicious veggie love.

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.

Avocado Caesar Dressing

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!!
