almond butter quesadilla

Yay for Friday’s!  I am really looking forward to a nice low-key weekend at home.

I woke up this morning and wanted juice!  So, that is what I made.

Carrots, celery, ginger, orange, apple.

    This was a perfect amount of sweet and spicy (from the ginger).

    I also had a small bowl of cereal with 1/4 cup Kashi puffs, 1/4 cup Uncle Sam’s cereal, 1/4 cup museli and 1/2 cup almond milk.

    Juice just doesn’t really fill me up.  So, I needed a little something else.

    Mid-morning, I snacked some some dried strawberries and dried kiwi.  Have you guys seen Nuts Online?  They have the best selection of dried fruit…and offer organic unsweetened dried fruit, which is hard to find!  The strawberries are the best.

    Then, I got creative for lunch! 🙂

    Almond Butter Banana Quesadillas

    I started with a whole wheat flatbread.  I love the Whole Foods brand because they are delicious and have a small ingredient list.

    And spread 1/2 with chunky almond butter.  This was Trader Joe’s Valencia AB with Flaxseeds and salt.

    And, a small sliced banana.

    With a shake of ground cinnamon.

    Then, I folded it over and grilled it on the panini pan until warm and gooey.

    This was so good!  Just what I wanted for Friday lunch.

    With a cherry Crofter’s jam ‘dipping’ sauce – YUM!

    On the side, I had a pineapple Chobani with a kiwi.

    I thought that I was going to hit up the gym tonight, so I snacked on some coconut water and a homemade granola bar around 4pm.  But, I ended up just coming home and taking a long walk.  The weather changed from overcast and chilly to sunny and warm…I couldn’t pass it up.

    Dinner was back to Bean Chili leftovers.

    Tonight, after heating up the chili, I added a little milk in order to get rid of a little spice. I’m not going to lie – this chili has a kick!  The milk worked great to take away a little spice, though.

    Topped with a few Mary’s Sticks & Twigs and some mexican shredded cheese.

    I love this Chili!  I haven’t gotten sick of it yet.

    I’m thinking of some dried fruit, ice cream or chocolate for dessert. 🙂
