Veggie Burritos

Veggie Burritos

If you have been following me on pretty much any social media (I’m aware I’m on most of it most of the time) you may be aware that I am currently completing my very first detox/juice fast thing. There are a few reasons why I’m trying this; to improve the acne on my face, to give my poor liver a helping hand, and to know what it’s like to do one, in case one day in the future one of my patient’s would like to try one, so I can give them genuine advice and tell them what to expect.

For me, I don’t really drink coffee, and haven’t been consuming that much sugar of late, I don’t eat dairy, because I can’t, and I don’t drink that often either, so my struggle with this cleanse so far, is that I am constantly hungry. I thought I would miss salt, but protein, baby! Protein is what I miss!

Yesterday was day 3 and my diet for the day was limited to raw fruit and vegetables, but instead of just munching on carrot sticks, I decided to make meals so I at least feel like I’m having a proper meal.

*NOTE* When you make this recipe, make sure you add some sort of protein (red kidney beans, tuna, tempeh, chicken, kangaroo, beef, tofu, etc), as I do not feel comfortable giving you detox instructions when I don’t know anything about how what’s going on with your body*

The good thing about this recipe is that not only does it taste AH-MAHHH-ZING, it’s dairy-free, gluten-free, grain-free, packed with nutrients, low calorie and depending on which protein you choose, it can be vegan or paleo friendly. So, let’s get to it!

Veggie Burritos Assembled

VEGGIE BURRITOS

Serves 1

INGREDIENTS

2 large leaves (I used beetroot leaves, but large lettuce, cabbage, or other green leaf that is large enough will do)

1/2 Zucchini & carrot, chopped into matchsticks

1/2 tomato, cubed

1/4 capsicum, sliced

1/2 avocado, cubed

1/2-1 cup protein (of your choice, cubed/sliced as necessary)

1 tbl fresh coriander, finely chopped

1 clove garlic, crushed

1 tsp chilli flakes

1/2 lime

DIRECTIONS

After you’ve thoroughly washed your large leaves, lay them flat on a plate and distribute your ingredients evenly so that they can still roll up easily. Sprinkle over the chilli flakes, garlic, coriander and squeeze over your lime juice before rolling up.

*NOTE* This will be messy, but fun stuff usually is, so enjoy it!*

PS. My photos are taken on an iPhone, so I’m sorry they are so small, blurry and overexposed, I’ll guess (I don’t know much about photography anyway)
