Sometimes, eating healthy can be a challenge…some days I don’t have time to cook a healthy meal, other days I may have time but no energy…and then there are plenty of days I have both time and energy but my emotional state is insisting on eating junk food! Preparing healthy foods can be a challenge some days but it really is better for our health in the long term!
Old London wants you to toast to your health every day and say “OPA” to a better you! Their website offers many healthy living tips to keep you on track when it comes to eating healthy foods. The term “OPA” is a popular Greek word meaning excitement or cheer. Food and healthy living are very important in Greek culture. Olive oil, grains, vegetables, fish and dairy all play a big part in the diets of people in Greece.
Celebrity dancer Chelsie Hightower and a team of nutrition and culinary experts have partnered with Old London to help incorporate the spirit of Greek culture into your life with easy-to-manage health tips and recipes to support an overall healthy lifestyle. What sort of tips do they recommend? Simple ways to get healthy like taking your workout outside, making healthy snack choices, or to go dancing! Eat before you are starving and find something healthy that has a nice crunch to really satisfy you! They really want you to know that getting healthy doesn’t have to be complicated!
Check out this very uncomplicated recipe I made from the Old London website for Cheesy Quesadilla Dippers! I made a couple of small changes to the original recipe but they came out great!
•2 cups grated Monterey Jack
•1 cup cooked corn, drained well and pureed in food processor (I decided to use whole corn instead)
•1 bunch scallions, chopped
•Guacamole, mild tomato salsa , fat-free refried beans, and low-fat sour cream as dips
1.Preheat oven to 350°F.
2.Arrange half a box of Melba Snacks on a large baking sheet.
3.Divide the Monterey Jack, corn puree, and the scallions evenly among them. Top the mixture with remaining Melba Snacks. (I decided to leave mine topless)
4.Bake the quesadillas until cheese melts.
5.Serve the quesadillas with the guacamole, salsa, refried beans, and sour cream.
They have a ton of other great recipes on their website too! Just head HERE to check them out!
