Tofu Quesadilla…

I am so sorry for scaring some of you ayer with the title of my post lol… I was trying to be funny haha. But I must say it is so nice to know that I am loved lol.

After my horrible Saturday, I tried really hard to “behave” ayer and I think I did a good job. First with a kick ass workout and then a great day of eats…

For Lunch I had a pastele with Ketchup (sorry Mo) and Protein Cookie Dough for Dessert.

I was chatting with my sister and she told me that she was making Steak Quesadillas for din din and I wanted to make my own healthier version with Tofu.

First I cooked the Tofu with a little bit of Oil…


Until they turned golden brown…


I then tossed in some Onions and Red Peppers and seasoned it with Garlic, Salt, Paprika, and Szechuan Hot Paste.


I then tossed it all into a Tortilla with Reduced Fat Mexican Blend Cheese and cooked it on a skillet.


I paired it with Reduced Fat Sour cream and Salsa…this was delish!


Next time I will make some guacamole to go with it =)


This morning I did Jillian’s Kickboxing DVD, Turbo Jam 20 minute workout, and Namaste Yoga for Distance Runners and burned 496 Calories.

For Breakfast I had Kashi Oatmeal, with PB, and 1/2 a Banana with my usual Café con Leche


I was supposed to go to Tar-Jay with my momma this morning but she is not feeling well, so I get to loaf around until I have to go train my client tonight.

I am also planning to hit the gym mañana dark and early to get my run on since we are expecting a snow storm in the evening. I don’t want to mess up my C25K Training…

Have a fabulous day chickies!!!!!!!



  1. I love the idea of a tofu quesadilla! Sounds delish! What is a pastele?.. (I would put ketchup on it too- ketchup makes everything better!)

    Have a great Monday!

  2. Boo to the snowstorm! But it looks like you had a awesome day full of good eats and a great workout! I am going to try to do a Jillian video now. Wish me luck!

  3. you're tofu quesadilla looks like a well executed plan! mmmm!

  4. The tofu quesadilla looks great! I must copy that one.

  5. I dont' believe in snowstorms anymore. They just never seem to happen.

    Tofu quesadilla sounds awesome! Way less expensive and healthier than steak.

  6. i have so experienced the tofu quesadilla its AWESOME!!!!

    have a wonderful day Mari :)

  7. Tofu quesadillas, yum! Tacos are like a vegetarian go-to because anything with salsa and sauteed veggies is bound to taste good, and add some guacamole and you know it's going to be killer!

  8. The quesadilla looks awesome!!

  9. The tofu quesadilla looks yummy.

    I hope your mama is feeling better soon!

  10. Great idea to use tofu!! I think this will be my lunch tomorrow - but I may add taco seasoning and of course my beloved Tabasco for seasonings.

    Thanks for the great idea - I'll be sure to give you props on my post :D

  11. I wish I could eat tofu! This looks so delicious and creative. :)

  12. AWW, learned something new today! Tofu in quesadilla...looks great!

  13. SNOW DAY!!!! I really hope all this talk about snow isn't going to jinx us. I mean I'll still have to go to work, but hopefully I'll also get to play in the snow.

  14. That looks so tasty. I love tofu and I have never used it in a quesadilla.

  15. sorry, I'm just not a fan of tofu at all...ack, how can you eat that stuff? Haha! But if you put some kabocha and cheese in there....;-)

  16. Nice workout and that tofu looks soooo good! Every time I "fry" my tofu my husband makes fun of me, but I love it all toasty brown like that!

    Glad you liked Lily pictures!!! : )

  17. MAri, this looks fantastic! Good for you being a good influence on your sister :) Tofu is definitely healthier than steak, although for me I'd probably stick to the steak so I don't end up stinking up the room (tofu=BAD GAS for me). Keep up the good work, and have a wonderful day!

    haha, I actually made a bean and chicken quesadilla for Nick the other day and he requested that I make it everyday. I should add tofu next time :) muahaha

  18. Augghhhh I can never post on blogspot anymore!!! I just tried here @ work though - and I can - is it my stupid computer??! Anyways - I'm still reading ;)...and LOVE your eats and ketchup -yes - mine would be covered in it!!! Thanks for always keeping me smiling - I can't always comment - but I'm out here reading !!!

  19. I'm really enjoying all the things you are doing with tofu!
