Instead of eating a quesadilla
made with a white flour or corn tortilla,
boost your metabolism with this
sprouted grain quesadilla – no preservatives,
better for your digestion and super high in fiber!

– sprouted grains= super high in fiber + no preservatives (keep it fresh in the fridge/freezer)
– organic cheese = no added hormones
– beans = super high in fiber + protein
– veggies- adding in veggies like chopped kale and tomato healthifies it even more!

Healthy Sprouted-Grain Quesadilla
– Sprouted Grain Tortilla (or Brown Rice Tortilla if gluten-free)
– Organic Shredded Cheese (I used Mexican, but you can use mozzarella, cheddar, jack, etc.)
– Can of Black beans (or red, pinto or garbanzo), rinsed or soaked before ysing
– Kale, tomatoes (or vegetables of choice: chopped onions, avocado, spinach, broccoli, olives, peppers)
– Grapeseed oil (or coconut or olive oil)

1. Place a touch of oil on a pan (cast-iron preferred), turn it up to med-high and add 1 tortilla.
