My variation to the burrito listed on the above site isn't really better or worse, it's just different. Maybe it isn't a burrito at all but that's what we call it. Here's my family's favorite:
The SimplyWyse Burrito
- Whole Wheat wrap, flour tortilla, etc.
- A can of low fat or vegetarian refried beans
- A can of tomatoes wth chiles (like Ro-Tel)
- Some cooked brown rice
- A little bit of cheddar cheese or cheese of choice
- Diced fresh tomatoes
- Diced fresh avocado
- Fresh spinach leaves or mix greens, or head lettuce, if you must
- Sour cream
- Black olives
- Lime wedges
Another family favorite is homemade chicken nuggets. Britain's ownJamie Oliver is striving to educate the world about healthier eating and recently (well, last year) tried to educate some young American children about chicken nuggets. His experiment failed ... seriously failed. If you haven't seen the video ... well, a picture is worth a thousand words. Click HERE . Sad, don't you think?
Imagine my surprise when I showed my grandson the video, which totally grossed him out, then actually heard him say he wanted chicken nuggets from you know who! Ah, no ... but thanks for asking! Why don't we make our own chicken nuggets, I asked. He was delighted to help and loved our homemade nuggets. Need a recipe? OK ... check out another website I found called Kids Fitness Central whose website offered a great chicken nugget recipe.
As a society of over-indulged are we really ready to make a change? Do commercials really need to remind us to eat at the dinner table? To "eat 5 a day" or remind us to get up and move? Have we become so simple-minded that we've forgotten how to think for ourselves? Do we really need doctors to tell us what to do? Don't we already know?
