Apple, Chicken, and Brie Quesadilla

This past weekend, I decided to start meal prepping for the week.  Our freezer’s been filled to the brim, I had ingredients that needed to be used up in the cabinet, and I just felt the necessity to eat better.  I’m usually left wondering what I’m going to eat for lunch once noon rolls around.  I have to admit that lately, I’ve been hopping in the car and pulling up to a drive-thru window.  It had definitely taken a toll on the way I felt!  

So I got to work cleaning out the fridge and freezer Sunday evening.  I shredded chicken, made brown rice and beans with vegetables, and headed to the store the next day to pick up a few things to complete my meal plan. Even though I didn’t do so well on The Fast Metabolism Diet, I took away a lot of recipes and ingredients that I wouldn’t have used beforehand.  Like Ezekiel bread!  I’m loving the sprouted whole grain tortillas that I picked up this week!  

The other day, as I once again pondered what I was going to make for lunch, I decided to get into fall flavor mode and make an apple quesadilla.  I’ve been flagging recipes to make from the An Apple A Day cookbook (I’ll be sharing some other recipes inspired by this book within the next month or two!), so I had bought a bunch of pink lady apples.  I used what I had in the fridge to make my quesadilla – including some creamy brie that I couldn’t stay away from – and whipped up a quesadilla perfect for a fall lunch!

This quesadilla was exactly what I was craving!  It was full of seasonal flavor, a great crunch from the apple slices, and what’s not to love about creamy, melted brie!  I will definitely make this quesadilla again in the near future! And while this recipe might not completely fit the red theme for this week’s Maker’s Mix-Up, the apples sure do! We can’t wait to see what RED recipes and crafts you link-up this week!
