Burrito Bowls: The Easiest Thing You’ll Prepare All Week.

Okay….so I seriously have an addiction to Tex Mex it seems.  Most of my current recipes in rotation consist of the same ingredients:  beans, tomatoes, corn, rice/tortilla, cilantro and OF COURSE avocado.  I actually Googled earlier, “How much avocado is too much avocado?”  I was happy with my answer:  Most people suggest a whole avocado being appropriate per day.  You can split it half for lunch and half for a meal/snack later in the day.  Some people were posting they were consuming THREE a day…..I WISH…only in dreams….But seriously, it depends on your own personal metabolic rate so I say EAT THEM ALL.
