    SIGN UP FOR MY **FREE** 7 DAY “HIPS DON’T LIE” PROGRAM TO IMPROVE HIP FLEXIBILITY!   

The weather in Ottawa has been gorgeous lately! Yesterday I made the most of it by going for an hour long walk in a beautiful park with Kira. She got to play in the water, chase a few squirrels and socialize with other dogs while I got some much needed quiet time in nature. There’s something quite magical about fresh air. Whenever I’m feeling overwhelmed, one of my “tools” in my self-help toolbox is to take a a walk or run outdoors. I come back feeling grounded and much more focused! Since we got Kira about 2 weeks ago my yoga practice has been pretty inconsistent. We’re still trying to figure out our routine and I’ve been taking her outside with me as much as possible so fitness wise I’ve mostly been taking long walks and doing a bit of yin later at night. I miss my sweaty Vinyasa practices! I need to get my butt in a studio stat!

 I made some vegan burritos the other day and they turned out really tasty so I thought I’d share the recipe!

Vegan Burritos & Homemade Taco Sauce
Makes 6 burritos



Ingredients for Burritos:

  • 6 whole grain wraps
  • 1/2 can of lentils
  • 1/2 zuccini
  • 1 cup shredded carrots
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 1 bell pepper, chopped
  • 1/2 eggplant, chopped
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • couscous (we buy the Casbah boxes, they’re amazing!)

Directions for Burritos

  1. Chop all vegetables (we chopped everything finely except for the zuccini)
  2. Over medium heat, fry the onions and eggplant in a bit of oil for about 5-7 minutes (add water if you are concerned about oil intake)
  3. Add in the other vegetables, lower your heat a bit and cover your pan. Fry for another 10 minutes or so, perfect time to prepare your taco sauce.
  4. Add in lentils to the vegetables to fry for about 2-3 minutes.
  5. Make cousous by boiling water and adding in the cousous. Reduce the heat to low and cover it. It will be ready in 5 minutes so remember to check it!

Ingredients for Taco Sauce:

  • 2 tbsp tomato paste
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 tbsp white wine vinegar
  • 2 tbsp water
  • 2 tbsp ketchup
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp oregano

Directions for Taco Sauce

  1. Add add ingredients to small pot over low heat
  2. Stir frequently for about 5 minutes until achieving the desired consistency

When everything is ready simply lay out your wraps, layer on your veggies, couscous and sauce and wrap them up! Super delicious and very filling!

 Have a wonderful weekend!
