Food To Be Fit: Quick & Easy Burrito Bowl

I know what you're thinking, so I will stop you right there :) For those of you that didn't like the fact that I used cans in one of my recipes, guess what - every can in this recipe is BPA-FREE. Yes, they are a little more expensive, but you can taste the difference, and you know you're not putting that crap in your body. This meal is supposed to be quick and easy, which is why I am using already prepared salsa...but, this salsa is organic, gluten-free and GMO-FREE (YAY!). Get to it...this delicious lunch is calling your name...OLE!
