Have you ever loaded up your fridge with fresh vegetables with the best of intentions, only to find them uneaten and sad by the end of the week? I’m embarrassed to say how often this happens to me!
I do a big healthy grocery shop on the the weekends and then during the week, things get so hectic that I can’t find the time to wash and chop up my vegetables. Not a great healthy eating strategy, is it? Here’s how I deal with that on busy days… plus a super yum recipe for my Sushi Burrito Loaded with Fresh Veggies!
Disclosure: this post is a collaboration with Mann’s. As always, all opinions are 100% my own.
I’m a huge fan of making eating veggies easy. Mann’s has ready-to-use vegetables like various slaws, sugar snap peas and more. They’ve taken the concept one step further with their Nourish Bowls. The bowls come with a rainbow medley of fresh vegetables, a fibre-rich complex carb such as brown rice or squash, and a delicious sauce. Just stir, heat (if you like) and you’re ready to eat!
Not only do Nourish Bowls make it so much easier to prep a nutritious lunch or dinner – they’re also super versatile. Add any protein you like and you have a warm, satisfying and balanced meal that’s ready in minutes.
My favorite Nourish Bowl is the Sesame Sriracha. It’s great topped with some salmon, shrimp or edamame. You’ll also love it in my sushi burrito! It’s as easy as mixing the Nourish Bowl ingredients, layering them on a nori sheet, laying some fillings on top and rolling it up. It’s a healthy handheld meal in minutes!
The Southwest Chipotle Nourish Bowl is another winner that would work great in this recipe if you want the flavors more on the burrito side than the sushi side. You can even wrap it up in a whole grain tortilla!
This sushi burrito is loaded with broccoli slaw, kohlrabi, cabbage, carrots and snap peas and some brown rice, making it way lower in calories than your white rice versions that feature mayonnaise-laden sauces.
You can use any type of protein you like in your sushi burrito. I love to use sushi-grade salmon or seared tuna. If you’re vegetarian or vegan, you can use tofu as your protein. Try smoked tofu for even more flavor!
