Macro- Friendly & Dietitian-approved Burrito Bowls
I don’t think I’ve ever met someone who doesn’t like Mexican food. What’s not to love? Guac, Salsa, delicious spices… it’s a no brainer really. However, when we eat Mexican Food out.. it may not align too well with our Health & Fitness Goals (i.e. is not friendly with a Macro). We can’t control portion sizes and there’s often hidden calories hiding in our meals (oils, sauces etc.)
Lucky for you, making delicious & healthy Mexican at home is SO EASY. Jono & Deano made these incredible burrito bowls for lunches for the week (it only took us 20 mins). We put together a little how-to video which you can find here. Here is the recipe:
Cals/Macros for this recipe, serving 6 people. 390 cals | 45P. 30C. 8F.
- 1kg Chicken
- 1 sachet of Mexican Spice Mix (or make your own!) +

Assembling your bowls
Basically, pop everything into a bowl or take-away container and you’re good to go. Quantities will vary depending on your goals, however we used 1/4 cup measurement for everything per meal – besides the chicken (we did 150g per meal).
