MTM: Quesadilla Lunch for Toddlers (and Adults!) Plus How to Make Guacomole

Here's our lunch today. A low glycemic fiesta with a low carb cheese quesadilla, homemade guacomole and fresh salsa (from the store).

Also, blueberries!!!! Squeeee! We love blueberries around these parts.

Not too much sugar. 10+ grams of fiber for the entire lunch and two servings of veggies.

If you haven't made guacomole before, it's super simple and a wonderful, fresh addition to your meals.

It's also something that's fun to do with toddlers. I let mine squeeze the lime while I prepped all the ingredients. She also got to stir and mash the avocado as well as add the salt. That passes for High Excitement in our house.

Ingredients for 2 servings:
  • 1 avocado
  • 1 garlic clove put through a presss
  • 1/2 a lime
  • Salt to taste
  • Cilantro to taste

1.Take a knife and run it in a circle around the avocado. Twist to pull apart from the large pit in the middle. With a spoon, scoop the avocado into a bowl.

2.Mash the avocado with a fork.

3.Squeeze lime over avocado.

4.Add some dashes of salt, the garlic and cilantro.

5.Taste and add more salt, lime or garlic as necessary.
