I know it’s been awhile…I really needed to hit the reset button last week, take a step back and take a break.
I was pooped trying to keep up with all the things of my new life while keeping this blog going.
Not going to lie, things were beginning to get slightly overwhelming.
As to not start Monday with a heavy note I am going to hold off on the “overwhelming” discussion, and talk more about that on Wednesday.
For today I am going to carry on my tradition of delicious eats!
San Diego is known for its amazing Mexican food; tacos, burritos, etc.
To pay homage to San Diego (since I am missing it so much) I decided to make a healthy, easy to make, burrito bowl, complete with Parmesan encrusted tilapia, cilantro lime rice, homemade beans and a yummy sour cream topping.
This weeknight dinner is low in carb and can be made in a quick 30 minutes to please your tummy and the mouths you are feeding.
You can customize this burrito bowl in any way that you like, adding fresh salsa, raw spinach (I like it better than your typical iceberg lettuce) and slices of avocado or guac.
This burrito bowl is a go to meal for me.
Hope you enjoy and can’t wait to get more personal with you all on Wednesday! Xx

For the rice:
- Combine panko, Parmesan and seasonings in a shallow bowl and stir. Pat tilapia filets to dry and remove excess water. Place the filets in the panko mixture and press down, making sure to coat both sides evenly. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Place filets in a lightly greased baking sheet and bake uncovered for 10-15 minutes.
- In a pan over medium low heat, add oil to coat the bottom. When hot add the onions and let them sweat for about 5-6 minutes until soft but not brown. Add garlic until fragrant. About 1-2 minutes. Add beans. Stir. Add all seasonings and stir. Bring to a boil and add Serrano. Reduce heat to low and simmer. Let simmer for 15 minutes stirring occasionally. Taste and adjust seasonings if necessary
- Cook the rice according to directions on packet. Add all other ingredients and stir to combine.
Assemble all ingredients in a bowl, and add your favorite toppings.
