Quesadillas with Stealth Ninja Squash

Another smashing success in the Stealth Ninja Vegetable Experiment!

I made 2 more recipes out of the cookbook, Deceptively Delicious: Simple Secrets to Get Your Kids Eating Good Food: Chicken Quesadillas (with Stealth Ninja Butternut Squash), and Guacamole (with Stealth Ninja… well, I guess the avocados are pretty Out There with their Green Flags Flying… hmmm).

In addition to butternut squash, the quesadillas also had stealth ninja white beans! What a crazy amount of ninja going on in there!

I did not have my camera nearby, so alas, I have no photos, but the prep was super easy (and therefore not worthy of Adventure status here at Epic Organic). All I can say is – these quesadillas were wonderful and the guacamole was heavenly! I used all organic ingredients and can’t wait to have the leftovers for lunch tomorrow. Insanely delicious, and again – not a single sign of odd vegetable tastes anywhere (aside from the flamboyant avocados). If you’re a fan of chicken quesadillas, these are gooey-delicious and filling (and a great source of vitamin A!)

Here are the recipes as I prepared them, along with approximate nutrition info at the bottom of each one:

Superman Breakfast

No new recipes today – alas, it’s back to work and I’m in for a long day. Before I go, though, I wanted to share what to me felt like a Superman breakfast (you know, the super hero?)

Continuing my love affair with oatmeal, I made up a batch of classic oatmeal (the cinnamon vanilla banana kind). Then, I tried a new food (#7 for the year, for those that are counting): Oikos, or Greek yogurt. I love yogurt, and Oikos is basically a richer, thicker yogurt with a higher protein content. I went with Stonyfield organic plain Oikos, and the ingredient list was lovely. One ingredient: organic nonfat milk. Ahhh, freedom from chemicals!

I needed a little bit of “sweet” in my yogurt, so I added a tablespoon of organic strawberry conserve (a whole-fruit version of a jam). The verdict: delicious – and packed with protein (15g in an 80-calorie cup!). Good eats!

With that, I was stuffed – and several hours later, I’m still going strong (though I am starting to think about lunch).

Have a great day! Here’s to a Superman breakfast!
