Chicken, Spinach & Ricotta Quesadillas
Freeze and Reheat in no time for a satisfying and heathy lunch!
8 oz. boneless, skinless chicken breasts
2.5 tsp. extra-virgin olive oil, divided
Sea Salt & Ground Pepper, to taste
1 Medium White Onion, finely diced
1 Medium Red Bell Pepper, diced
1 bag of spinach (6-8 oz.)
3/4 C. low fat ricotta cheese
1/2 C. Navy Beans, drained and rinsed
3/4 cup low fat mozzarella cheese, shredded
1/4 C. Fresh herbs (flat leaf parsley and rosemary), chopped
Juice of 1/2 lemon
Pinch of freshly ground nutmeg
11 small herb and whole grain tortillas (6-inch)
-Preheat oven to 350
-Coat chicken with 1/2 tsp oil and salt and pepper. Place chicken on parchment lined baking sheet and bake for 14-16 minutes, or until fully cooked. Remove and cool.
-Heat 1 tsp. oil in a large nonstick saute pan over medium-high heat. When hot, add onion and pepper and saute for about 3 minutes. Add spinach until just wilted and set aside in a paper towel lined bowl and cool.
-In a large bowl combine ricotta and beans and smash beans slightly. Add mozzarella, herbs, lemon juice and nutmeg. Season with salt and pepper, stir well until combined. When chicken is cool enough, dice into 1/2 inch pieces and add to cheese mix.
-Working in small batches, squeeze excess moisture from spinach mixture using paper towels and your hands. Discard liquid and add to chicken-cheese mixture. Mix thoroughly until combined. Taste and adjust seasoning as needed.
-On a flat surface lay out tortillas and top with 1/3 C mixture in center of tortilla. Fold in half, pressing gently to flatten filling evenly, until filling is 1/4-inch from edge (you want to prevent the filling from leaking out during cooking). Lightly brush both sides of quesadilla with oil and season with salt and pepper. Wrap in plastic wrap or bags in packs of 2 and lay flat in freezer. They keep for 2-3 months.
-When ready to eat, Preheat oven to 350 and take them out of the freezer, defrosting just enough for them to be pulled apart. Place frozen quesadillas on a parchment lined baking sheet and bake for 24-26 minutes or until filling is hot throughout and tortillas are golden browned and crisp. Allow filling to set for three minutes and cut in half and enjoy.

Lowfat cheese cubes (MM eats cheese...)
Ants on a Log (PNB on celery sticks topped w/ raisins)
Apple wedges w/ caramel dip
Fruit Kabobs (2-3 pieces of fruit like grapes, strawberry, melon chunks, pineapple chunks on a toothpick) -- can use strawberry yogurt as a dip
Really, I think if you use MM plates and napkins, the food will be well-accepted even if it is not in a MM shape
What about stir fry? That's always my favorite and it's pretty easy and healthy. My favorite it a thai stir fry with rice noodles and peanut sauce, but you can really do whatever. I first cook the rice noodles. While they're cooking, I cook the meat or tofu I'm doing (usually chicken, but shrimp, beef and pork work too) Once the meat is browned on all sides, I throw in the veggies (I usually just use whatever I have, but my favorite is bell peppers, snap peas, onions, carrots and broccoli) Let it cook for a few minutes, then put the sauce in. The sauce you can buy or make your own, I usually make my own. (I don't have a recipe because I just kind of toss it all together, but it's basically just two spoonfuls of peanut butter, a splash of vinegar, a dash of powdered ginger or fresh, a dash of garlic powder or fresh, about 4 squirts of soy sauce (maybe 1/4C?) or just to taste, a sprinkle of sugar, some dried red pepper flakes and then I just add water until it's at the consistency I like) Just mix that all together and mix it with the stir fry. If you don't like that, you can just use teriyaki sauce (1-1-1 ratio of brown sugar, corn syrup and soy sauce..but that is not very healthy) Or just some soy sauce with it (marinade your meat in soy sauce and add it to the veggies while it's cooking) & It's pretty good plain as well. Once the veggies and everything are done, toss the noodles in and you can top it with lime juice, peanuts and/or cilantro.

A nice healthy alternative to ice cream or popsicles is frozen grapes. Tastes excellent and a nice way to keep grapes for a long time.

Some dogs do not handle brown rice well and will throw it up. Brown rice product in dog food is processed a lot and is easier to digest. But I agree with home cooked diet and it is what I use for my dogs. I feed them organ meat twice a week (usually beef heart, chicken hearts or chicken gizzards cooked and ground) and the rest of the week they get deboned and largely skinless chicken, turkey, lean hamburger or other beef and a variety of other meats as available.
For carbs they get (1 of the following:)white rice, quinoa, sweet potato or yellow potato (potatoes peeled, eyes removed and none with green color under or at skin), barley, oats (oatmeal)
For veggies they get cooked and chopped: carrots, green beans, peas, broccoli, cauliflower, zucchini squash, brussels sprouts
For snacks they get limited slices of cored apple or, sliced mango, papaya, nickeled banana (in the summer we freeze it single layer side-by-side in freezer bags, and for a special treat you can put a dab of peanut butter on each slice and top with finely grated raw carrot.
They also love oven dried sweet potato sticks and for their teeth we get them oven baked pigs ears, careful to get a brand that is made in America.
For their skin and coat, we have found it essential to add a fish oil capsule (Omega 3 fish oil caps) made for humans in each of their two meals. This is great for their skin and coat.
Sometimes they get scrambled eggs for breakfast, with oatmeal. The eggs replace the a.m. meat.
They love having some live active cultured yogurt added to their oatmeal or served on the side of anything. This has calcium and phosphorous and contains beneficial bacteria which is great for their digestion. We bake home made dog biscuits from scratch which they love, and we use made for human product. Always check expiration dates on any boxed or packaged flours.
Their favorite dog biscuit recipe is:
2 cups white whole wheat flour
1 cup 2 percent milk
1 cup peanut butter
1 T. of baking powder
Mix wet ingredients in one bowl until well blended. Mix dry ingredients in another bowl.
Add wet to dry ingredients and then knead for five minutes. Then roll out and cut the shapes you want.
Bake in the oven at 325 for about 13 minutes. The time varies according to how crisp you want them and how fast your oven bakes.
When they are done and cooled, you can put a thin smear of peanut butter in between (if you want) two cookies and make a doggie oreo. Or, just give as a treat by itself. Our dogs go nuts over this recipe.
Our dogs are seniors now, and very healthy (12, 11 and recently turned 10). Dog food companies have way too many recalls to suit me.
