These Low-Carb Chicken Burrito Bowls come together in just about 30 minutes, for a fast and easy dinner. Instead of using rice, these bowls are made with cauliflower “rice”, which is a low-carb alternative that is easy to prepare in the Instant Pot. No food processor necessary!


1 cup prepared salsa
1 pound boneless chicken breasts
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
Salt and pepper
1/2 head cauliflower , cut into florets (about 10 ounces)
shredded lettuce
chopped tomatoes
green onions
shredded cheese
black beans


1. Pour the salsa into the bottom of the Instant Pot and place the chicken breasts on top. Sprinkle a 1/2 teaspoon of cumin, plus salt and pepper over the top, but do not stir.

2. Place a 2.5-inch trivet over the chicken, then put an oven-safe bowl that is 7-inches in diameter on top of that. (I use 4-cup porcelain salad bowls from West Elm or a round glass storage container.) Pour the cauliflower florets into the bowl.

3. Secure the lid to the Instant Pot the move the steam release valve to Sealing. Select Manual or Pressure Cook (the button varies by model) to cook on high pressure for 4 minutes. When the cooking cycle is complete, let the pressure naturally release for 10 minutes before moving the steam release valve to Venting. (The screen will read LO:10 when the pressure has released for 10 minutes.) When the floating valve drops, to signal that the pressure has been released, you can safely remove the lid.

4. Use oven mitts to remove the bowl of cooked cauliflower and the trivet, then use tongs to transfer the cooked chicken to a cutting board to rest for a few minutes. Use a potato masher to break up the cooked cauliflower into rice-like pieces. Season the rice to taste with a little salt and pepper.

5. Use two forks to shred the chicken on the cutting board, then transfer it back to the salsa in the Instant Pot and give it a stir to coat well. To serve the bowls, place some of the cauliflower "rice" in a bowl, top with some of the shredded chicken and salsa mixture, and other toppings like lettuce, tomatoes, green onions, and avocado.

It’s pumpkin 🎃 bread season!

Here’s how to make this lovely 🥰 loaf:

Preheat oven to 350’F and coat just the bottom of an 8 ½” x 4 ½” pan with non-stick cooking spray.

Whisk 3 large eggs, 6 tablespoons avocado oil, 1/2 cup granulated sugar, 1/4 cup brown sugar and 1 (15 Oz) can pumpkin purée together in a large bowl.

Combine 1 cup all purpose flour, 1 1/4 cup whole wheat flour, 1/2 tsp kosher salt, 2 tsps baking powder, 1 tsp baking soda and 1 Tbsp pumpkin pie spice in a medium bowl. Pour dry ingredients into bowl with wet ingredients and stir to combine. Do not over-mix.

Pour batter into prepared pan and bake until cooked through and golden, 50-60 minutes. Bread is done when toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.

Cool in pan on wire rack for 15 minutes. Remove from pan and return to rack to finish cooling.

Is coffee ☕️ part of your morning routine?

We love our cup of pure joy 🤩 too and luckily, it comes with some health benefits!

Research points to the caffeine in coffee for improvement in our mood, memory and cognitive function. And all of those antioxidants it contains help keep our cells healthy, protecting us from illness and disease.

But remember, too much of a good thing isn’t good. Stick to one or two (8-ounce) cups a day to keep dehydration and jittery behavior at bay. And keep it simple; skip all of the sugar and cream and instead, pick a milk or plain, plant-based milk and sweeten with warm spices such as cinnamon, nutmeg and turmeric.

What do we stock in our fall 🍁 pantry?

So glad you asked! 😉 Check out our favorites below and let us know, what do YOU plan on keeping on your shelves this fall?

1️⃣ Canned pumpkin - of course! We love this staple to mix into pancake or waffle batter. It’s delicious swirled into smoothies and yogurt too! Loaded with Vitamin A, an antioxidant that promotes 👁 health!
2️⃣ Wheatberries - the delicious wheat kernal is earthy and fun to eat! It pairs well with all of the fall produce in side dishes and salads. It’s packed with fiber, so it’s super-satisfying too!
3️⃣ Red lentils - the versatile lentil! You can blend them and turn them into a delicious dip or soup! They’re also great as a topping for salads. A perfect plant protein!
4️⃣ Stock/broth - it’s soup season! Woo hoo! Most good soups are made with stock or broth, that’s why they’re a staple. Be sure to buy low-sodium to keep salt in check.
5️⃣ Canned artichoke hearts - mmmm, these guys are so versatile and delicious! Toss them with pasta, use as a topping for pizza or make a yummy dip with spinach and Neufchâtel cheese!
