Hello lovelies<3 I hope you are all doing well! It’s currently Tuesday afternoon and I am just enjoyed a nice long shower. We came home from our road trip Monday night to finding that half of our appliances weren’t working! Our hot water heater was one of them, so I didn’t get the chance to shower until now. I posted a lot of my “fun” meals on Instagram this week, so I don’t have a ton of super-cool stuff to show you all. I do have a bit though!
First order of business, let’s discuss this beautiful quesadilla that I made today. Tip: put salsa in with the cheese before you melt your quesadilla and it gives it a delicious, gooey, spicy flavor!
I had this alongside some zucchini from my garden! We grow some vegetables and herbs, which I personally believe taste so much better than store-bought produce.
While we were in Iowa visiting family, I had only one request: to go to the apple orchard! Their local apple orchard allows residents to come in and take any of the apples that have already fallen to the ground for free. Isn’t that so kind of them? Anyway, I cut up a couple of apples to snack on when we got home. They browned within seconds and were a little mushy, but tasted great nonetheless.
Now that my mouth is feeling back to normal, I have been enjoying a larger variety of foods! Meats were hard for me to eat post-surgery, so I really enjoyed this bag of turkey jerky.
*For those wondering, I eat a lot of vegetarian meals and snacks. But I do not label myself as a vegetarian. Since I am in recovery from an eating disorder, I am trying to rid myself from labeling my diet and restricting specific foods. I do sometimes prefer to eat vegetarian and I love tofu/tempeh/veggie burgers/etc, but I do not think that it is healthy for me mentally to stop eating meat at this point.
This was eaten before our trip when my mouth was still sore! It was a delicious hodgepodge of everything that needed to be eaten before we left on our trip: an egg, egg whites, and part of an avocado. Topped with some salsa, of course!
Do you have anything you like to put in your quesadillas? Do you like vegetarian meats?
