Who says healthy food can’t taste good? Many people think that the road to health means they have to give up everything that satisfies their taste buds. Well, that is hardly the case. For your consideration, we present the organic beef quesadilla.
Now, before you go haywire at the notion of beef, remember that beef is not a bad thing. Low quality, hormone-ridden ground beef is bad for you; but buying grass-fed organic beef provides your body with quality protein and nutrients. Dieting for health and performance is not about starving yourself of good food and eating protein bars all day – rather, it’s more or less getting rid of all the processed garbage that’s clogging up your kitchen pantry.
Now that we have that out of the way, here’s a quick step by step process for making a great tasting quesadilla:
Here's what you'll need:
- 2 Brown Rice tortillas*
- 6 oz cooked grass fed organic beef
- 1/2 cup sliced raw cheese
- ½ cup diced organic grape tomatoes
- ½ cup diced organic broccoli
- 1 organic avocado
- 1/4 tsp celtic sea salt
- 1-2 slices organic lime
- 1 quarter small organic onion (chopped into bits)
- 1 tbsp organic butter
* You can buy these from a Whole Foods or other health store. They should be tortillas with the ingredients of brown rice and brown rice only
1. After you've chopped up all your vegetables, melt half of the butter in a pan
2. Once the butter is melted, place one tortilla in the pan and fry it until it gets light brown
3. Remove tortilla and then place the remaining butter in the pan. Once again, let it melt
4. Place the other tortilla in the pan. Evenly spread the beef (it should already be cooked prior), cheese, tomatoes, and broccoli on the tortilla
5. Place the other tortilla back in the pan and let it cook until cheese is melted and then remove from pan
6. Mash an avocado in a bowl. Once mashed up, add salt, onion, and then squeeze the lime juice with the avocado. Mix contents together for your own guacamole.
7. Cut into six pieces, spread guacamole on top, and enjoy!
