Turkey Breakfast “Quesadillas”

2 Jun

Here’s a fun test: Vegan vs Keto.

Which do you think is a healthier meal?

On the left, we have a Vegan meal: baked fries, gluten hot dogs on a whole wheat bun, and sweet coleslaw. On the right, we have a Keto meal: sardines, asparagus in lemon butter, olives, and tomatoes.

Now let’s compare a whole day’s meal:

On a Vegan diet:

On a Keto diet:

  • breakfast ~ Eggs, No Sugar Bacon, and Avocado;
  • lunch ~ Sardines, Asparagus in Lemon Butter, Olives, and Tomatoes; and,
  • dinner ~ Grilled Lamb and a Big Salad with a Mayonnaise Dressing.

Which is healthier? LOW FAT HIGH CARBS or LOW CARB HIGH FATS? Check out this video here for some answers. 

So we don’t need all that carbohydrates after all?

If you are like me, you are just beginning to figure out that of the three macro-nutrients (protein, fats, and carbohydrates), our bodies DO NOT require a lot of CARBOHYDRATES. Check out this video here for why that is.

Moderate Proteins and High Fats for Breakfast

We just discovered ourselves that our bodies were struggling after 8 solid years on a Low Fat High Carbohydrate Vegan diet. In search for a better diet for our family, we have switched to a Low Carbohydrate, Moderate Protein, and High Fat Keto diet. Our moods have changed, our cravings have changed, we don’t feel “hangry” pangs, there are less aches and pains, our skin is better, and the list goes on.

Turkey Quesadillas

So what did we have for breakfast today? These yummy “quesadillas” that my son just loves.

Turkey Quesadillas

Ingredients

  • no sugar turkey deli meat
  • your choice of cheese
  • salsa
  • green onions
  • avocado
  • eggs
  • sour cream

Place grated cheese and green onions inside the turkey slices, fold over, and bake at 350F for 5 to 10 minutes until the cheese melts.

While the turkey quesadillas are cooking, fry some eggs and slice some avocados. Now it’s time to plate breakfast. Top the quesadillas with salsa and green onions. Serve with eggs, avocado, and sour cream (optional). ENJOY!

For a Paleo option: instead of cheese, place scrambled eggs inside the turkey slices instead.
