Sorry that there have been so few posts lately. As Max mentioned in his ramblings last week, I had a bout of stomach flu last month. Thus, cooking wasn’t on my agenda. 😀 But I’m back with some delightful things planned. Now we just have to cross our fingers and hope everything turns out. To be fair, some won’t. It’s just the nature of the beast. Not every dish is a winner; some are epic fails.
I don’t talk a lot about those dishes because they make me grumpy. Not so much because I feel like a failure, but because I hate the expense of wasted food. Sometimes I can endure and eat the not-so great meals begrudgingly. Sometimes I cannot. 😀 I will make myself sick and nobody wants that, especially me!
Fortunately, the dish I’m sharing today was an epic success and I love it so much. My Burrito Spaghetti Squash Bowl is healthy, relatively easy to make and the leftovers heat up beautifully. In other words, it hits all the checkboxes for me! Plus, I love that it is vegetarian because I try to incorporate a few meatless meals in my monthly rotation.
While you can certainly add meat, if desired, this is also an extremely hearty meal too, which I love. I have a big appetite so I look for dishes that have a lot of substance with a reasonable amount of calories. This Burrito Spaghetti Squash Bowl is packed with plenty of good-for-you veggies and is relatively low carb.
This has become one of my go-to lunches. It satisfies me without being too heavy, which is also important. I want lunch to fuel me for the afternoon, rather than make me sleepy! It reheats great, which is key for me. I want to eat a healthy lunch, but one that doesn’t take long to prepare (this is a make-ahead meal for me) and this fits the bill perfectly. When avocados are on sale, I like to whip up a batch of guacamole to enjoy with my burrito bowl. It takes it from delicious to out of this world!
