1. Low Carb Chicken Quesadillas

Recipe Shared From: Taste Aholics 

llo

Ingredients:

  • 3 oz pepper jack
  • 2.5 oz chicken breast grilled
  • 1/2 avocado sliced thin
  • 1 tsp chopped jalapeño
  • 1 low carb wrap

Spices

Instructions:

  1. If not already done, grill the chicken breast with spices (optional) for additional flavor. Make sure it’s chopped so it cooks quicker and is ready to go into your quesadilla.
  2. Place your wrap on a frying pan wide enough to allow the wrap to lay as fully flat as possible on a medium heat.
  3. After a 2 minutes, flip the wrap over and begin laying out the pepper jack. Don’t get too close to the corners (leave a little less than in inch from the edges of the wrap).
  4. Add the chopped chicken breast, sliced avocado and jalapeño to only one half of the wrap.
  5. Fold the wrap over with a spatula and press down to flatten (not too much!). This will ensure the melted cheese glues the quesadilla together.
  6. Take off the pan and cut into thirds. Enjoy with salsa and/or sour cream!

2. Grilled Halloumi Salad

Recipe Shared From: Taste Aholics

Ingredients:

Instructions:

  1. Cut the halloumi cheese into 1/3 inch slices. You don’t want to make them too thin since they will shrink a little in the grill.
  2. Grill the halloumi for about 3-5 minutes on each side. You should see nice grill marks along the sides.
  3. Prepare the salad by washing and cutting your veggies. Cucumbers into small slices and tomatoes in half. Chop your walnuts as well and combine in a salad bowl.
  4. Wash the baby arugula and throw it in the bowl as well.
  5. When the halloumi has grill marks on both sides, arrange it on top of your salad, sprinkle some salt and dress with olive oil and balsamic vinegar.
  6. Enjoy!
