Chicken Burrito Bowls

Pizza! Goodness, I was on a short fuse today because I had both boys home with me all day. When I get a little frazzled I crave crappy foods and today all I wanted for dinner was Dominos to deliver me a heavily cheesy pepperoni pizza. Would I have felt good eating pizza? While consuming it, yes most definitely. However, I would have felt like an enormous blob an hour afterwards!

So, instead of succumbing to the little devilish voice screaming for PIZZA, I decided to make these grain free chicken burrito bowls. Good stuff, YES INDEED!

Oh and my inner crazy signed up for a half marathon in the dead of winter! For whatever reason I am the girl who loves winter running. It could be snowing like mad and even below zero, but I will still get geared up and run in it. I am beginning to think that I actually like the challenge of winter runs more than just going out when it is 70 in the summer. Oh well, different strokes for different folks, right? YEP!
