Back to Reality and Low Carb Quesadillas






Hey y'all. I have kind of a short post today as I'm jolted back to my normal routine. Coming back from vacation is never fun. Before I left Denver I weighed about the same. I know that vacation usually packs on a few pounds so I expect to see a gain this week but I'm trying to normalize today and eat normally/drink plenty of water. Going to Colorado/Wyoming was an amazing experience. The weather was beautiful and so was the scenery. Ian and I didn't want to come home. We drove up and through mountains, explored a ranch in Wyoming, ate German food and played in downtown, Denver, I can't wait to go back out west.




All I will share today in terms of food is the Fresh Market quesadilla meal we made a couple weeks ago. As I have mentioned, I'm a big fan of their "Little Big Meal" that is $20 and serves 4. This meal came with tortillas, cheese, guacamole, black beans, salsa, chicken and vegetables. Instead of normal tortillas, I used the low carb/chia/60 calorie wraps that Fresh Market has. I'll be honest, they aren't great. They have a gummy/diet characteristic BUT I do like to use them in cases where I'm going to have a lot of flavor to trump the lack of flavor in the wrap. For the quesadilla, it made sense. Filling it with cheese, black beans and chicken then topping it with guacamole and popping it in the oven, I was OK with the wrap...especially since it was only 120 calories for two to have on top and bottom.

Next week I plan on sharing a more FULL post but today, I'm just trying keep my head above water.

Thanks again to my friend Arianne for letting us stay with you in Denver!

Roll Tide this week as we face Ole Miss...a team that has had our number for some reason for a couple years.

Until next week...
