This week has been a whirlwind of meal prep deliciousness (see these Stuffed Pepper boxes and this Zucchini Pasta Pesto prep). So like, are you ready for more meal prep? Because I am!

Especially when that meal prep involves…BURRITOS! Vegan burrito bowls, to be exact. These make ahead lunch bowls basically define really tasty clean eating (like, the clean eating you actually crave). Because they’re jam packed with so much flavor. There’s the tempeh taco meat, the Chipotle-inspired herby cauliflower rice, the creamy cashew queso. There’s just so much going for it.

They take 30ish minutes to prepare and give you lunch for the week. Need I say more? Let’s do this.
