  • Summary

    As I’m sure everyone knows by now, I’m a fan of tacos. All. Of. Them. You can eat 1, 2 or 3. It’s breakfast, lunch and dinner. It’s the most perfect food really :). The big brother to the taco is the burrito. It’s basically a super sized taco. However, if you don’t buy the GIANT burrito wraps, it’s not so bad and frankly, a perfect size. You might be saying to yourself that there are lots of ingredients to them and you can’t really make one or two. Well, this is pretty much the case. It’s a catch-22, but also not really. Why? Because it forces you into doing this thing called meal planning for athletes. Burritos are the ultimate make ahead and freezer friendly meal. It’s also portable which is great for recovery from training sessions or when you are trying to rush out the door in the morning for work. Last summer when I was training for Lou, I’d make an egg, rice and spinach burrito to eat after my swim and before my ride. It was recovery and fuel all at once. When it comes to figuring out what to fill them with, just try to stick with not so delicate foods, like lettuce. Think about what holds well in sandwiches or what foods you usually put in the freezer. This black bean and sweet potato burrito is a good example of the “sturdier food” I’m talking about. Don’t be afraid of experimenting with different flavors and ingredients because you can’t really go all that wrong. It’s your taste buds Couple tips: when you do go to freeze them, make sure you wrap them well because freezer burn ruins food. Also, roll them TIGHT. How much does it suck to take a bite of a burrito and it all fall out? It might take a few practice sessions and that it a-ok.
