On a whim, I decided to try the black bean burrito - something I normally wouldn't order because the nutritional info is hard to determine and most tortillas are made with trans-fat, but I knew it would be healthy here. I actually even asked what kind of tortillas they use and when she told me Alvarado St. Bakery I knew I was safe. I started to worry on my way home that the burrito would be super-sized and stuffed with cheese, but much to my surprise it was PERFECT!!! Perfect portions and blend of flavors - I couldn't have made it better myself! And I ate it with a knife and fork to make it last extra long :)
- Tortilla - Alvarado, burrito size, 170 calories
- 1/2 a cup black beans
- .2 cup shredded carrot
- 1 leaf lettuce
- 1 serving sliced black olives
- 1/4 a cup of shredded full-fat cheddar cheese
I also had an apple sliced on the side:
Both for about 500 calories:
Now I have to admit, I'm still a little hungry. I would have liked to have had a yogurt with this. But I guess I just need to be a little hungry - or go have some water because this was a completely well-balanced lunch.
Also got in a 22-minute quick walk after eating. Sweeeeeet!
