Healthy Burrito Bowl Recipe

Some of you know that I did Nedra Sahr’s Fresh Start Cleanse training about a year ago. I did the cleanse myself last year and am doing it again right now and!!!! Nedra is a nutritionist who’s been with Shaklee for a couple of DECADES and she knows her stuff. This cleanse has a clinical study supporting it for weight loss. But it offers you so much more! Inches lost as well as a whole mindset shift around food and healthy eating. I am craving salads instead of sweets and that says a LOT for this sugar addict. It also helps with metabolism, education around healthy food and it helps you to make a lifestyle shift toward healthy eating that still tastes good and helps you to form new habits that you will stick with!

Having said that, I made one of the Fresh start recipes in week 2 of the program this week and it was so good! I posted about it and had several asking for the recipe so thought it was easier to type it out one time here to be able to easily share! I highly recommend!!
