Chocolate Protein Shake and A Greek Quesadilla with Dipping Sauce
Posted Oct 01 2012 8:02am
This weekend was fairly calm. Saturday I woke up and got through a 5.5 mile run, which was pretty exciting considering that was the farthest I have run in the past 2 years My legs though were DEAD by the end of it. Seriously. My wind was fine for the run, it really was my legs that didn’t seem to have it in them to pump out 5.5 miles.
After I got back, I was starving and needed something cool. It was 90 outside, which can really get to you after that distance. A protein shake seemed right up my alley. And good Lord, did I make a protein shake. It tasted like a Chocolate Shake based with ICE CREAM. Absolute YUMMO.
It really hit the spot. I ended up spending the weekend cleaning for the most part. Just getting some regular chores done that I don’t normally have the chance to do. BOORRRING. But at least it’s all done.
I took Sunday off from working out because my legs were still sore. I was planning on getting a yoga DVD to try out, but never got around to it. For dinner lat night, I had something that did real good things. A Greek Quesadilla with a Yogurt Dip. I am not a big fan of olives, but without them…the quesadilla wouldn’t have tasted so good. It was really quick and easy to make both the quesadilla and the yogurt, but it tasted like I put a lot of effort into it.
1/2 Cup Cucumber, Chopped
1/4 Cup Mozzarella Cheese
2 Tablespoons Feta Cheese
2 Tablespoons Sliced Olives
Dipping Sauce Ingredients:
2/3 Cup Fat Free Greek Yogurt
1 Tablepsoon Fresh Dill
1 Teaspoon Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1 Teaspoon Lemon Juice
2 Garlic Cloves, Diced
1. On one side of the quesadilla, fill with all of the ingredients. Top with other wrap and place on preheated skillet, or in quesadilla maker.
If you are using a quesadilla maker, you don’t need to flip it over and it will take about 4-5 minutes total. If you are using a skillet, you will need to flip it once it gets browned to toast the other side.
2. Mix up all of the ingredients for the dipping sauce in a small bowl.
And there you have it! It was really simple but packed with flavor. The dipping sauce really makes the whole dish. It’s perfect for any night that you are starving and just want to sit in front of the TV, relax and eat some finger food. Well, because that’s exactly what I did
There were no leftovers. I’ve got to get my butt moving for the day, so stay tuned!
