Whether you’re looking to slim down, lose tummy bloat, or pack in more nourishing ingredients into your body, this Veggie Burrito Bowl With Paprika Rice recipe is the perfect way to do it!

You can eat this for lunch or serve it for dinner – it’s crazy healthy and something the whole family can enjoy.

The paprika rice is so simple to make and adds a nice extra kick to the burrito bowl without all the gross additives you get from buying fast food burritos. No, instead, this rice is good for you!

To make the paprika rice, make brown rice the way you normally would, and once it’s done just mix in the paprika, salt and pepper and cilantro.

The salad dressing is easy peasy too. Just mix together olive oil, apple cider vinegar, sea salt and ground pepper. This will get drizzled over the entire burrito bowl to add an extra dose of healthy fats from the olive oil and nourishing apple cider vinegar helps to lose weight (1).

The last step is to make the guacamole. You can seriously make this in less than 2 minutes. So this bowl is really easy to make and once you do you’ll be hooked! You’ll want to make it on a weekly basis because, seriously, how can healthy taste this good!?! Like, really.
