Are you a meal prep kind of person? I have found that if I take the time to prepare lunches, snacks and some dinners on Sunday afternoon that I feel less stressed during the week and I tend to eat better too. I love when I can open up my refrigerator on a Monday morning to stacks of containers ready to grab with my breakfast and lunch. I decided that this week I was going to switch things up a bit by making Vegetarian Freezer Burritos that I could just warm up for lunch!
These Vegetarian Freezer Burritos are quick and easy to pull together and can feed you or you family for a full week. My secret meal starter ingredient for these burritos is MorningStar Farms® Grillers® Crumbles™ mixed together with black beans and Great Value™ Chopped Spinach found at Walmart stores nationwide. I love that this base is packed with protein, fiber and vegetables! I whipped up a citrus marinade to drizzle over these ingredients to bring a burst of flavors to the burritos. I finished them off with a helping of rice and a sprinkle of cheese to complete the meal. If you are using the Ibotta app, you can buy any 3 MorningStar Farms® products and earn $3 through January.
If you have never tried a MorningStar Farms® this is the perfect way to make the switch. These little crumbles are not just for vegetarians and make for a convenient, as-is meal solution. The best part is that they help me and my family live a healthier lifestyle. You could say that this product is a party of my New Year’s ‘Vegolution’ helping me to incorporate more vegetables into my daily life.
