Spicy Mexican bowl (low fat)

The burrito bowl is a lunch staple for many because of their versatility.  They are easy to make and taste amazing.  

This spicy recipe is ideal as a quick low carb meal that keeps the added fat a little lower to increase satiety and help you lose weight.  

The ground beef provides plenty of protein along with zinc, phosphorus, selenium, choline and B12 while the spinach fills in the vitamin A, K and folate. 

The guacamole, sour cream and cheese provide some extra energy that will keep you going all day and ensure flat line blood sugars.  But if your priority is fat loss then use a bit less.
