It’s a new year, new you. When the clock struck midnight, you probably thought back on the previous year and planned to improve yourself in the year to come. Everyone sets resolutions for the new year, but they can be so hard to keep up. Luckily, there’s one love you don’t have to give up: tasty burritos.
Here are 5 ways to incorporate burritos in your New Year’s Resolutions:
How to Make a Tasty New Years Resolution
Resolution #1: Diet
Did you commit to a new diet this year, like going keto or vegan? You can still enjoy your favourite Tex-Mex without cheating on your goal. For example, if you’re transitioning to a keto diet, there are many options available that will keep burritos in your life. The keto diet is a low carb and high fat diet that demands the removal of carbs like bread and rice in favor of moderate proteins, like chicken. Fortunately, BarBurrito has a variety of proteins and low-carb toppings that can keep you on-track with your ketogenic diet. On your next visit, skip the tortilla and rice in favor of a lettuce base and proteins like chicken and load up on low carb veggies like tomatoes. A bonus, keto allows you to also keep the cheese! Keto sauces include hot sauce and barbecue sauces as well.
Trying out a vegan or vegetarian diet? There’s a burrito bowl for you. Protein options like Bean, Cheese, and Guacamole or Veggie Ground are packed with flavor and sure to fill you up. Additionally, our wide selection of vegetable toppings can add an extra layer of taste and crunch that will make a vegetarian or vegan bowl the perfect midday meal. Our Jalapeno Eclipse, Spicy Buffalo, Chipotle BBQ, and Signature Hot sauce are completely vegan, so you can add that extra spice to your bowl, as well.
Have a gluten intolerance? We have a variety of gluten-free options for you. First off, skip the tortilla in favor of a bowl. Next, load up on proteins like beans and chicken, veggie ground, or steak. Balance out the proteins with lettuce, tomatoes, jalapenos, and other delicious toppings then end off your perfect gluten-free burrito bowl with a squirt of your favorite sauce. If macros are what you’re worried about, a chicken bowl with beans, rice, veggies, and guac packs 28.5 g of protein without going over 500 calories.
Resolution #2: Learn a New Skill
There are many different skills to choose from, but only one that is both delicious and will wow your friends every time: Burrito wrapping. The art of burrito wrapping can be difficult to master. You may find the tortilla is too loose, tears too much, or can’t hold your toppings together. We’ve put a helpful video together to help you master the art:
