Ideas For Chicken Burrito Bowls

Is This Chicken Burrito Bowl Healthy?
Of course! Eating a low carb diet not only allows you to burn your body’s fat stores but also helps maintain a regular blood sugar level and even increases your energy levels throughout the day.
Large amounts of rice can spike insulin levels just as much as sugar, so by substituting rice for cauliflower, you will be eating a healthier version without compromising on taste.

Why Should You Prep Keto Meals In Advance?
My big philosophy in life is this: What 20% of my time is bringing 80% of the results?
If we apply this to your health: Which 20% of your health gives you 80% of the results you’re looking for?
This is the power of meal prepping.
Most people think that meal prep is eating the same meal every day. There should be WAY more variety than that.
Most people just do meal prepping the wrong way.
Not only can prepping save you time in the kitchen, but it can also save you money. You won’t be spending money on ingredients you don’t need.
It gets better…. Who hates washing up? Me too…
Cleaning a few containers each week is much better than a full dishwasher each night.
These are all the benefits of preparing a few easy meals at the start of your week, and when life gets busy, you don’t have to try and figure how many calories you’ve got left for the day.
