Slide show: Healthy meals start with planning
Oversized burrito vs. healthier burrito and sides
Previous Next 3 of 5 Lunch done right

How does the lunch pictured on the left of an oversized burrito and sides stack up? It's obvious at a glance that it's short on fruits and vegetables and high in fat. What may not be obvious is that this lunch has more than 1,000 calories — enough for two people.

The photo on the right shows a regular-sized burrito made with grilled chicken, fresh veggies and a whole-wheat tortilla. It's a healthier way to indulge your taste for spicy fare. Fresh salsa and avocado slices replace the guacamole and sour cream and up the veggie count. You get all that for less than 500 calories.
