This, my dear blog reader, is why you are getting a nice photo of my dinner. A burrito. Now, I know I don't need to give you a recipe to make a burrito because none is required, so let this just serve as a reminder that burritos are good (and can be healthful!)...and pavlova is evil...and difficult to get out of your hair.
Tips for making healthful burritos:
- Use 95% lean ground beef (or grind your own lean sirloin if you can).
- Use a paper towel to carefully sop up the hot fat as it melts out of the beef. You want the protein, not the fat.
- Use only a bit of olive oil in the pan to fry the onion before adding the ground beef.
- Add a can of whole garbonzo beans to the cooked meat mixture - it is a great way to add fiber and slow-burning carbs, which can help you feel full longer.
- Use a low-sodium taco seasoning.
- Go really easy on the cheese and fat-free sour cream; load up on fresh tomatoes, green pepper, and lettuce.
- Use a small, low-carb wrap. I buy La Tortilla Factory Smart & Delicious tortillas - at only 3 net carbs, 7g fiber, and 50 calories, they are a good choice.
Nom nom nom!
P.S.: If one of you makes a pretty pavlova, leave a comment on this post when you do. I will not only give you a large non-existent medal, I will also post a link to your blog, and will even post a photo of my disastrous attempt. LOL
