Anything tastes good between toasted tortillas. Veggies are no exception.
These veggie quesadillas have been the answer to my health crisis lately.
What’s the crisis? Well, ok..it’s not really a crisis.
Honestly, I’ve just felt a little out of it when it comes to being healthy and exercising. I’ve been so busy with school, I just recently moved, and it’s easy to get distracted and ignore eating habits.
Now, don’t get me wrong. I’m still eating ok and I do exercise kinda regularly. However, I just feel like I am not doing my best. I could eat so much cleaner and could work so much harder at the gym. I even feel a bit out of it with yoga, which makes me super sad. My practice has been consistent, but not as strong as it was over the Summer.
I’m sure I’m going through something super normal. We all have moments where we plateau, we fall off track, we don’t think we’re doing our best. This is ok. I can get through it.
The worst part is that we are approaching the holiday season, and trust me, I don’t use that as an excuse to get off track. I will even have a post on staying healthy during the holidays coming in the next week. However, I do know that I will indulge, and I won’t feel bad about it. There is nothing wrong with cheat days, but there does come a time where it seems like cheat days are regular days. Where rest days become the norm. I don’t want it to be that way forever, so it won’t be.
I will share lots of desserts in the month of December, and after that, I will devote January to mainly health tips, clean recipes, maybe some advice on transitioning to vegan since that’s a common New Year’s Resolution.
Until then, I want to make the most of December and balance the healthy foods with the not-so-healthy food. I also want to maintain a workout routine, because I tend to get lazy towards the end of the year. For every unhealthy meal I eat, I will eat something super clean. Last year, I tried a 25 Days of Fitness, and only lasted about 17 days or so. I want to get through it this month. Plus, I need to make more yoga goals. I also want to get back into the studio because I’ve mostly only practiced at home. School will be over in a couple weeks. I will have about three weeks to take classes before Winter Quarter.
All this motivation to be healthier has me craving veggie quesadillas.
These are ridiculously easy to make, and are so quick and customizable.
I like mushroom, avocado, and green bell pepper. For flavor, I like hummus and sriracha….yum.
If you prefer any other veggies or flavors, feel free to mix it up. My veggie quesadillas will be delicious no matter what. Plus, you’ll feel amazing from all the amazing nutrients veggies have to offer!
I hope you do something today that makes you feel good, and is good for you. Drink a green smoothie. Go for a walk. Do a quick vinyasa sequence. Try my veggie quesadillas. You won’t regret doing something good for yourself.
