Healthy Breakfast

I need a break in the worst way. I feel like I've been running around for weeks and it's taking it's toll. I'm tired, cranky and I don't look or feel well in general.


I went home after work and had dinner before chorus.

It was a concoction of leftover roasted tomato bruschetta, whole wheat spaghetti and ricotta.

Today I slept in a little and had breakfast at home. I tried a recipe that I saw in this months Health magazine by Ellie Krieger. Cheddar and Apple Quesadilla.

You might notice I don't eat a lot of fruit. It's not that I don't like it - I don't love it or crave it enough to keep it around without going bad. I much prefer veggies to fruit. Vegetables are so much easier to keep frozen.

I sliced half a Granny Smith apple (ate the other half) and about an ounce of extra sharp cheddar. Folded it in a tortilla and warmed it on the stove in a pan sprayed with canola cooking spray till it stuck together.

It was sort of similar to the Grilled Apple and Brie thingy I had at The Stanton Social for my b-day - minus the bacon.

Don't think I didn't think about adding it.

It was really quite delicious. I'll definitely make it again.

Now if someone could keep me from eating every last cookie that I left at my desk yesterday.

Hmmm. Apparently there was a fire alarm a floor above me that has now been cleared. Should I be worried that I never heard the alarm in the first place?

I'm taking a very needed night off. I'll probably go to the gym for a quick little workout just to keep in the habit but then it's me and The Biggest Loser and a yummy dinner.

I can't tell you how much I'm looking forward to it.


  1. That sounds SO good! Nice one. I am going to have to give that a try. I hope that you get a break soon!!!!!!!!

  2. It was really good. A good balance of sort of sweet and savory and really light. And super easy too!
