High-Protein Breakfast Quesadilla

Save just a few minutes of your morning to cook yourself a crispy breakfast quesadilla that supplies 100% of your calcium. The jalapeno is optional, but it does contain beneficial capsaicin, which is linked to increased metabolism of fats and reduction in insulin spikes. Remove the seeds of the jalapeno if you prefer a milder flavor.

RD Tip

The type of tortilla you use is important here. A traditional flour tortilla won’t provide a lot of fiber or protein, but whole grain sprouted tortillas will add the needed fiber and protein to make this a healthy, balanced breakfast.
