Post Prep thoughts:
There is no way to take a nice picture of protein sludge… I swear it tastes better than it looks.  When you mix it with the peanut butter, add small amounts of water until you reach a “sludge” like consistency.  This breakfast could use some light cool whip or whipped cream on top!

Post Prep thoughts:
I steamed the shrimp since they were frozen (pre-cooked and deveined).  I strained the shrimp, let them cool, then tossed them with some salt, pepper, and Frank’s Red Hot sauce.  To cook the quesadillas, I sprayed a pan down with Olive Oil Pam, and placed the quesadilla in on Medium heat.  I put a heavy cast iron skillet on top to flatten.  After a few minutes on one side or until brown, flip.
I used the recipe feature on MyFitnessPal to calculate the calories per serving of veggies.

Final thoughts:
Not too much to say about this week.  I went with sludge and waffles for breakfast to satisfy a sweet craving I’ve had recently, and to switch up from just drinking a protein shake in the morning.
The quesadilla was really easy to make and I’m really looking foward to it this week.  Love the colors of the chopped veggies.
