      Let’s look at the main ingredients: 

      • Olive oil 
      • Cauliflower rice
      • Bell peppers
      • Yellow onion
      • Chicken  

      Olive oil, bell peppers, yellow onion, and chicken are all-natural, nutritious food sources. Each has its own list of health benefits. Combine them together, and you’ve got a fiber-packed, nutrient-rich meal. 

      Common white rice is made from milled rice that has had its husk and bran removed which makes it a simple carb, meaning it is nearly equivalent to sugar.

      Add 23g of sugar per serving to this Chipotle bowl, and you’re looking at heartburn with an energy crash. (And you’ll be scouring the pantry for your next sugar snack within the hour.) 

      Substitute common white rice with cauliflower rice, and this recipe becomes nourishment. The ingredients provide vitamins, minerals, fiber, and quality, whole-food energy.

      Chipotle Bowl Tips

      Easy Chipotle Bowl recipe with cauliflower rice

      1. Meal prep

      This recipe makes one serving, but you could easily double, triple, or even quadruple the ingredients, and add this bowl to your weekly meal prep. Store leftovers in airtight containers in the fridge, and warm them up for quick meals throughout the week. 

      2. Make it a wrap or salad

      Thanks to all the fiber, protein, and nutrients, this bowl is incredibly filling on its own. However, you could also add the ingredients to a low-carb tortilla, or serve them over a bed of greens to bulk them up even more.  

      3. Swap out the protein 

      Feel free to replace the chicken with ground beef, turkey, chorizo, or even tofu if you need a vegetarian option. It all tastes great! 

      4. Add more veggies

      If you want to add more nutrients to your meal, mix in any veggies you have on hand such as mushrooms, tomatoes, or zucchini.
