A Bowl of Burrito

Instead of eating the standard 80/20 (80% healthy, 20% unhealthy), I've been more of a 50/50. Even when I am in my "binging" state of mind, I still fit in some healthy meals. This burrito bowl is packed with fiber and protein and kept me full for hours. Plus, it only takes 10 minutes to cook.

Side note: In the following recipe, I use the microwave. Now I know it's somewhat of a faux pas to use the microwave in the culinary world....but I live in the real world.

1/2 cup fat free refried beans
3oz lean steak sirloin
1/4 cup fat free shredded cheddar cheese
5 olives
1 tbsp fat free sour cream
1 tbsp salsa
chili powder
garlic powder

Rub chili powder, cumin, garlic powder, salt and pepper into steak.
Cut steak into 1 inch cubes.
Cook steak in non-stick pan (med-high heat) until both sides get golden brown (approx 3-4 min per side).
Spread beans onto bottom of your serving bowl. Cook in microwave for 45 seconds. Add meat, cheese, olives.
Heat again in microwave for 30 seconds (until cheese melts).
Add sour cream, jalapenos, and salsa.
