Cinnamon swirl protein bread, healthy quesadillas, and healthy nachos

Hey guys! So, I have been gone since yesterday evening visiting Kayla. Remember? My best friend- we used to both have blogs (that’s how this blog started!)

Well, last night when I got to her house, we went out for frozen yogurt like we always do. I was telling her that frozen yogurt always somehow tastes better when we get it. I think it’s because it’s “our thing.”

After that, we went to Starbucks and got China Green Tips tea, and went back to her house and had girl talk, like we always do. It’s so refreshing to have such an understanding, good listening, good advice giving, and loving friend. I’m so thankful!

This morning, we woke up and had our Coffee talk, with Cinnamon Swirl Protein Bread.

She introduced me to these for the first time, and also gave me the recipe link to share with all of you! Seriously- they are so good, and only 55 calories! Now that number is worth looking at, because it makes it even more enjoyable!

After breakfast, we made homemade protein bars, which I’m going to blog about in the next post! Then, we got our walkin’ clothes on and headed out to Whole Foods. They were having a sale on LARABARS for 4 for $5, and then if you bought 12+ you got an extra 20% off on top of that. You better believe I stalked up!

We got these two new bars to try. We opened them up when we got in the car and gave em both a taste. Both really good! If you like Coffee, you will most likely like the Cappuccino- it has coffee in it. If you like crunchy, you will most likely like the KIND bar. We both liked both, and on my way home from Kayla’s, I finished off the Cappuccino bar πŸ™‚

After Whole Foods, we went on a walk with Kayla’s baby brother. Look how cute he is! We walked hills around her neighborhood, and you better believe our legs were talkin’

After our walk, we went home and made lunch, which we had been planning all day! We could hardly wait!

We made black bean & chicken quesadillas with grilled onions, guacamole, taco seasoning and cheese all melted together on the inside of a small ezekiel tortilla. Amazing!

Note to self and all of you, if you’re ever making a Grilled Cheese, or Quesadilla, Kayla told me to stick foil over the pan- it helps the cheese melt much better!

We each had half a quesadilla, and then we shared these healthy nachos.

On the nachos, we used almond thins instead of chips, then layered black beans, taco seasoning, cheese, and lots of salsa on top. I honestly didn’t miss the tortilla chips at all, and I felt so much healthier eating them this way!

On the side of our quesadillas we had greek yogurt (instead of sour cream) and salsa. These were SO good and I HIGHLY recommend you all try them! I am so lucky to have a friend with so many healthy ideas!
PS, THOSE NACHOS… SUPERBOWL is tomorrow. How about you make your family a special treat?!
