Lately, it’s felt like my routine is more off than on, so I’ve been trying to keep things in check. It’s really difficult to stick with healthy habits when your days are packed with non-optional activities.
When I got back from D.C. on Wednesday, I was exhausted, and craving mexican food. Even though it was $1 enchilada night (and I know I’d be able to convince G-love we should go to Little Mexico) I decided to whip up something healthy at home. Satisfying my craving, while still balancing things out.
I made these super simple Quesadillas:
Black Bean Quesadillas
- 1 high fiber tortilla (These are the best!)
- 1/4 cup shredded cheese (I used a cheddar blend)
- 1/4 cup black beans
- 3 tbsp salsa
- 1/4 cup chopped vegetables (peppers and onions are awesome!)
I just made mine on a george foreman grill and it literally took 5 minutes to assemble and cook. If you spray the tortilla with a bit of olive oil, it gets nice and crispy!
A quesadilla at a restaurant can run you over 800 calories, and tons of fat. This one (using the tortilla I linked to above) is less than 300, and packs a punch of fiber and protein!
I also discovered Brianna’s Caesar Dressing, which is a delicious vegetarian caesar dressing.
Almost every caesar dressing contains fish, so I was excited that this stuff is so delicious! It’s relatively high in fat, so I diluted mine with a little balsamic vinegar, to stretch it a little farther
In other news, (because apparently making quesadillas now qualifies as news) I bought a new camera lens! I got a 50mm f 1/8 for my Canon, and I’m so excited to play with it! (I already made Galen sit there for like 5 minutes while I used him as a subject, and he was less-than-excited about it.) That’s what I used to take the above picture with!
