Quesadillas with Chicken and Tofu
It helps if you batch cook chicken and use it for meals during your busy week. Mixing animal and plant based protein cuts back on cost and can be healthier too. Make lots because left overs are a great grab and go. My kids love these for lunches hot or cold. Quesadilla quickie recipe video:

How to Cook Quesadillas:
Chop cooked chicken into small pieces *Tofu only if vegetarian.
Drain Tofu water and chop into bite size pieces *it helps if you let it sit and drain for 15 minutes to get the liquid out.
Sauté Tofu in extra virgin olive oil with spices until browned *I like to mix the spices and oil in a mason jar then pour on top of the tofu
Spice options: garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, smoked paprika, Herbamare, fresh garlic, pinch of cayenne pepper, salt and pepper. Use what you have and love.
Mix Tofu and chicken together, sauté until heated through
Add chicken, tofu and any veggies in a tortilla
Sauté until the tortilla is just browned, flip and do the other side too.
Toppings: use any veggies you like onions, tomatoes, corn, cheese, avocado, bell peppers and pretty much anything

How to do the Stretch
In a seated position, sit evenly on both sides of your glutes (booty).
Cross one leg in front of the other.
Sit nice and tall.
Drop right elbow to right thigh or (add a soft pillow, towel or anything if you need the height and can’t reach the knee).
Lead with your chest open, slowly side bend to the right (gentle tension, no pain).
Imagine the left armpit opening to the ceiling, shoulders back and down.
Option: bring the left hand across to the right OR bend the elbow and bring the left hand to your left ear.
Hold for 5 breaths in and out.
Repeat on the other side.
2nd set: cross the opposite leg in front of the other and repeat stretch both right and left.
Reduce your stress by adding this stretch daily at home, at your desk or anywhere. Try it for 30 days and see how much better you feel. I’m excited to share the Fit4Females recipe book, get on the list to hear first here.
