Who needs Chipotle when you’ve got a kitchen? I don’t know about you, but my desire in life is to be able to order guacamole without having to think twice about paying for it. Adding a dollop of guac when eating out basically costs the same price as buying two whole avocados!
With this amazing recipe I no longer have to mull over a $13 purchase at Chipotle. Besides, making your own food is healthier and more rewarding.
This homemade burrito is amped up with protein, fibre, good fat and doesn’t have any preservatives. The high amount of red cabbage also makes this meal ideal for healing the gut.
Don’t Stop at Red
When it comes to filling our burritos, red cabbage isn’t usually on people’s radars – but it should be. Check out these ways that adding this vegetable to your diet can boost your health:
- Rich in vitamin C and boosts your immune system
- Contains phytonutrients that fight inflammation and arthritis
- Source of vitamin K, which contributes to bone health and reduces your risk of osteoporosis
- Fights degenerative and chronic disorders, such as Alzheimer’s disease
- Promotes a healthy gut, such as when fermented into kimchi
For a refreshing, yet filling, gut-healing, money-saving recipe try these homemade wraps now.
