right now rawI love Fresh Fridays when I have a new recipe to share with you. I am excited about this recipe for a lot of reasons. I am proud of our daughter, Lindsey, for creating it. She was inspired by a restaurant, then she put her spin on it, and now we have a delicious recipe!right now raw

This will be a regular dinner for our family because they devoured it! Mexican food can really be missed when you change over your lifestyle for a healthier one, that is what makes this burrito fun! It is loaded with goodness and it has quinoa which is a complete protein.right now raw                                            Sweet Rafferty Burrito
