Tone It Up's Healthy Mexican Plate

In the past few months, I have begun enjoying eating various Mexican plates. While I was working for the Canadian Ski Council over the winter, my co-workers went to the Mexican grill across the street at least once a week (sometimes up to three times). It didn't peak my interest at the time so I never bothered getting anything from there. During my training week for my current full-time job, my manager took me out for lunch to Mucho Burrito (somewhere I had never been before). It took me a while to pick, but I eventually chose the Salad meal. Holy was that delicious and oh so filling. I didn't finish eating the whole thing but it was something I've had a few occasions afterwards.

Imagine my surprise when I stumbled upon the Mexican Plate recipe from Tone It Up during my Bikini Series. I didn't actually make the meal during the series, but have made this particular recipe twice now and love it. I don't use all the ingredients they have listed, I'm happy with lettuce, chicken, guac, salsa, and greek yogurt. It gets the job done. I'm so full and satisfied when I finish and don't feel the guilt as I tend to with the Mucho Burrito salad.

It's very easy to put together and you can make it as fancy, spicy, and flavourful as to your liking. Enjoy!
