Happy Wednesday everyone! Hopefully you got a chance to check out the quote from yesterday’s post – I actually met with my girl Jen last night for dinner & we discussed that quote in detail. We both agreed that we are usually our own worst enemies & how much power our thoughts truly have on us. It was so nice to see her and catch up – we both needed it! I will be posting more about that soon but today I wanted to share with you a NEW RECIPE that I’ve been loving lately!!

Like I’ve discussed [here] I’ve really made an effort to up my carb intake for my own personal needs (don’t fear the carbs-find what works for YOU) and I find myself craving quesadillas! YUM.

My Whole Foods sells 2 different types that I like, Engine 2 Brown Rice Tortillas –

And also Food For Life Tortillas

Both of these hold up well either un-heated or crisped up on the stove!

The other day I came home & was starving so I sautéed some onions, peppers, & spinach in garlic & coconut oil, tossed in 2 eggs (my digestion has been a fan of eggs lately so I’m slowly increasing them back into my diet because I chose to & enjoy them), & also added some black beans to made an amazing filling for my quesadilla!

not that pretty but OH SO good.

I spread some avocado on each tortilla & a sprinkle of nooch, then put one in a pan on medium heat, put the filling on top, & topped the filling with my other tortilla spread with the avocado. Once one side was done cooking, I flipped the quesadilla over to brown the other side. DELISH!

Served with one of my favorite salsa’s – Mango Peach Salsa from Wal Mart.

Yesterday I came home from a great workout similar to [this one] & opened the fridge to pull out all of the foods I was in the mood for. I had some sweet potatoes already prepped & had left over Caveman Bob’s on the fridge door which instantly made me crave BBQ! I’ve said before, I was never really a BBQ fan until I met Caveman Bob Winking smile

Ingredients:

  • 1 Tortilla Of Choice
  • 1/2 of a large sweet potato
    • (roasted at 400 for about an hour)
    • Mine was already prepped in the fridge waiting for me.
  • A few handfuls of each (whatever you have on hand and enjoy!)
    • Red Pepper
    • Red Onion
    • Spinach
    • Yellow Squash
    • Broccoli
  • 1/4 Cup Hummus
    • Optional: (mixed with 1 tsp spirulina for some added greens)
    • I get mine & the nutritional yeast on iHerb.com with coupon code XUG228 for first time users!
  • Spoonful of Caveman Bob’s BBQ Sauce 
    • (found at a local health food store)
  • 1 tsp of coconut oil
  • 1 tsp of minced garlic
  • Olives for topping

Directions:

  1. Sauté red onion, red pepper, spinach, & broccoli in some minced garlic & 1 tsp coconut oil until browned.
  2. While that cooks, crisp your tortilla by laying it into a pan on medium heat until browned & then flip until browned on the other side.
  3. While those two things cook, mix your hummus of choice with your optional 1 tsp of spirulina.
  4. Once the tortilla is browned, spread with hummus mix & BBQ Sauce.
  5. Top with sautéed veggies, sweet potatoes, & olives.
  6. Cut into 4 pieces & EAT UP!

Want to know a funny side note? Literally 2 seconds after I snapped this picture, I went to pick up my plate & the tortilla went sliding off & landed face down on the kitchen table. I laughed & growled out loud at the same time, ha! I then proceeded to get a spatula, scoop it up, & re-plate it so I could eat it up. I trust the cleanliness of my kitchen table so it’s all good Winking smile Just goes to show we’re all human, right!?

Hope you try it out & enjoy!

What’s your favorite thing to make with a tortilla?
