Egg White and Cheddar Quesadilla

by Khushboo on November 24, 2014

Hey guys! How was your weekend? I had an awesome morning on Saturday which included a run, massage and the most delicious breakfast in the longest time (more to come on that below).  We had 6km scheduled, but because this week is going to be hectic with friends & family in town, we switched it up so that we could finish off our 9km long run.

Although I was quite nervous initially, the run ended up being amazing.  The weather was perfectly crisp and more importantly, I felt strong the whole distance.  My breathing was great and it give me a confidence boost for my upcoming 10km Pinkathon Race for Breast Cancer.  A few other takeaways from the run included: 

  • Forget HIIT & running up inclines for speed work…just get a stray dog to run alongside you
  • The less I overthink about a run, the easier it seems to be
  • Pad Thai is excellent running fuel
  • Savory breakfasts > sweeter breakfasts after a run

With regards to the last takeaway, you guys need to try out this Egg White and Cheddar Quesadilla now!

And if you’ve already eaten breakfast today, make it for lunch! It’s easy, peasy and extremely cheesy.  Literally I can’t even.  Aside from tasting decadently delicious, it pretty much covers every nutritional base: complex carbs & fiber (tortilla), lean protein (egg whites), fat (cheese) & fruit/veggies (mushrooms & tomato).  If you’re counting your macros, each Egg White and Cheddar Quesadilla racks in about 310 calories & 26g protein.  Breakfast of champions? I think so!

On another note, I read something on Instagram which really stuck with me the other day.  It was along the lines of “Connect with people, not Wi-Fi”.  With friends & family coming to Mumbai over the next few days, I plan to spend as little time online as possible.  I’ll probably be back blogging towards the end of next week.  Until then, have fun & be sure to try out this Egg White and Cheddar Quesadilla recipe!

Sautéed Kale Breakfast Bowl

November 3, 2014

A self-proclaimed health nut who likes kale- gah how much of a cliché am I!  Since the company Trikaya started growing kale in their farms in India, it’s become so easily available here…and therefore has also become a staple at home.  While I’m a fan of most veggies, there is something about kale that makes […]

Busting nutrition-related myths

October 30, 2014

The Internet is double-edged sword space.  I love that it gives everyone a voice- whether that is in the form of blogging, updating Facebook statuses, tweeting, or utilizing any other kind of social media outlet.  Unfortunately that’s also Internet’s drawback.  With a click of a button, misinformation is easily spread and over time, it starts […]
