The Burrito bowl would have to be one of our favourite recipes at H&PC HQ, after all it ticks all of the essential boxes. It is nutritious, delicious and easy to prepare. The other amazing thing about this recipe is it is super versatile, and portions of ingredients are easy to adjust based on individual preference or requirements. While a starting portion might be 1/4 protein (mince and beans), 1/4 carbs (brown rice) and 1/2 plate of colourful salad veg, you can easily increase and decrease certain portions to match your own needs.

This recipe is not only a favourite for Jess Spendlove and Chloe McLeod, Co-Founders of Health & Performance Collective, it is also a favourite of Tim Ford who is a client of Chloe’s and a fellow Mizuno Ambassador.
