Dinner, Lunch

Veggie Quesadillas – Weight Watchers

I have been doing so good with my diet lately! I know for me there are times that I fall off the wagon. Food is so tempting!

When it’s time to get back on the wagon I find it so easy with Weight Watchers. When I used to do a low carb diet I would dread when it was time to start it.

I don’t like being limited to what I can eat. That’s why I love Weight Watchers so much. I can still have whatever I want.

I’m always trying to come up with new recipes. I saw a veggie sandwich on Pinterest that inspired this Veggie Quesadilla. The great thing is you can do this with pretty much any vegetables.

I used red, green, yellow peppers and onions for the quesadilla. I also added 2 tablespoons of part-skim mozzarella cheese for only 1 Freestyle point.

It needed some type of dressing added so I used lite balsamic vinegar. I love Caprese salads and the dressing with the mozzarella cheese kind of gave it that vibe.

The Xtreme Wellness high fiber tortillas are only 1 Freestyle point. That means this veggie quesadilla is only 3 Freestyle points.

I think tomorrow I am going to make another quesadilla for lunch. This time I’m going to try spinach and cheese with a little bit of garlic.

I always have tortillas on hand and it’s something I never get sick of. I had the veggie quesadilla today for lunch, then we had tacos for dinner. I know it’s not Tuesday, we like to live on the edge.
