I shared that this year, getting my health under control and finding balance is my number one goal. The first step I took towards that goal was joining a gym again.
I absolutely love working out, and after a few weeks I am already hooked like I was a decade ago. I just feel so much better when I work out regularly. I can't believe I waited so long to get back to the gym after having kids. The biggest challenge is trying to balance my already overflowing bowl of responsibilities while adding the gym to it.
Since I am determined to make this habit stick, I have been looking for ways to cut corners and eliminate small things here and there from my plate that aren't absolutely necessary. For example, this week instead of cooking dinner every night, I put together a perpetual soup in the crock pot for us to eat. It's a great way to use up leftovers, save time and have a delicious meal all at the same time.
I have also been looking for ways to make lunchtime easier since I need to get to work immediately after working out if I want to meet all of my deadlines. While I love cooking from scratch, there are some days when convenience is just needed.
That's where Udi's Gluten Free Burritos come in and save the day for me. I grew up in San Diego, so Mexican food was a staple of my diet growing up, and it's a staple of my family's diet now. It's probably my favorite type of food.
When I went gluten free almost 3 years ago, burritos were one of the hardest things for me to give up. It had been a really long time since I'd had a gluten free burrito that I didin't want to toss the tortilla and just eat the filling.
Then I discovered Udi's Gluten Free Burritos.
I'll be honest, the ingredients aren't perfectly clean, but it's so much better than most convenience foods. And they're good. Really good. My husband had no idea they were gluten free and Zoe told me it's her favorite frozen burrito she ever had.
And they're great for my post workout lunches. I can take one out of the freezer when I leave the house in the morning to thaw a bit since we don't own a microwave. Then I take the kids to school, run errands and hit the gym. When I get home, all I have to do is take the burrito out of the packaging and wrap it in foil (this step is key to keeping the tortilla moist), then toss it in our convection toaster oven at 350 F for 35 minutes.
That gives me plenty of time to get a drink, take a shower and check my emails. By the time I'm done doing that, the toaster over beeps and my lunch is ready. It's super easy and convenient.
If you're a gluten free Mexican food lover that misses burritos like me, check out Udi's Gluten Free Burritos. You can find them in the freezer section at Walmart.
