Chicken And Avocado Burritos


Are you guys feeling the love?? Now that we're more than a week into this Lots of Love Challenge , I really do notice that I feel more positive. Taking a full week to reset my mind —and to check all the ways I can think about myself negatively — was so healthy for me!

Now that we've done the "Get your mind right" week, I'm really leaning into the "Get your body right" week. I know we're only a couple of days in, but it feels GOOD. Like, yes, I'll be honest: the sugar cravings are very real. But knowing that we're all doing this together has definitely lessened the temptation to cave for me.

And, girls, I've gotta tell you from experience, when you come out the other side of this detox, you are going to feel SO MUCH better. Sugar messes with your body and your brain in so many ways. Not craving it, not even really wanting it very much, is such a freeing feeling.

And I feel like once I'm at that point, it gets easier to eat more healthily in general. Like, without sugar playing such a big role in my food choices, it's just less hard to treat my body right with nutritious, balanced meals (like this healthy burrito recipe I'm about to give you).Plus, it's not like we're eating boring food, right? How good were those pancakes from Monday?? Today, I'm coming at you with another equally tasty option.
