Now that the holidays are truly over – my last holiday celebration was spent yesterday with my husband’s family as we celebrated a late and lovely Christmas together – it is time to eat better. Yes, I know, don’t we all say that at the beginning of each year? But I do really try to eat well throughout the year. I avoid fast food as much as possible. I’d prefer to dine in, than out. When I cook, I know what ingredients go into my meals. I can trim back on the fat, salt and sugar, but try not to trim back on flavor. I have my vices. I love chocolate. Rarely does a day pass without eating some small morsel of it. I probably drink too much tea (I am waiting for some to brew right now). And once every blue moon I get an inexplicable craving for powdered donuts. Mmmm…powdered donuts. Did I just sound like Homer Simpson?
So this morning I could have prepared a big Sunday breakfast with a three-egg omelette packed with ham and cheese, a side of greasy cottage-fried potatoes, and toast smothered in butter and jam. Instead, I found this light and super easy breakfast quesadilla in an edition of Women’s Health, and thought it worth a try. I modified the magazine’s recipe slightly to use spinach instead of arugula, of which I’m not a fan. You can use any greens you like. Total calories 330. Hubby loved it.
