Sweet potato and black bean quesadillas

Sweet-potato-quesadilla-1-inmyredkitchen On Mondays¬† -after a scrumptious weekend filled with brunches, cocktails and grilled chicken- I’m always craving healthy foods. Kale, quinoa, sweet potato, lentils, chickpeas, avocado, black beans… you’ll name it and I’ll eat it.

I start my week with juices, smoothies, green tea and salads and on Friday that’s slowly transforming into fried eggs, waffles, ramen, caffe lattes and pizza. It’s all about balance right?

It’s hard to break from those bad holiday eating habits, isn’t it? You probably have some leftover cookies at home, or delicious marshmallows to go with your hot chocolate.

I know all about it. Even though I kept on hiking and juicing in between the holidays I gained some weight again. Not fun!

So to force myself to break with my new habit of eating some chocolate after dinner or go out for hamburgers I did a juice cleanse this week. This really forces me to eat healthy the days up to the cleanse.
