Bodies are Complicated
Studies show that parents who make comments about their children's bodies like commenting on their weight gain or "round bellies," are more likely to have kids who engage in binge eating, secretive eating, or other disordered behaviors.
Whole Wheat Quesadilla With Corn and Broccoli
Preheat the oven to 425°F.
Cut the broccoli into 1-inch pieces. You should have about 1½ cups. Put the broccoli pieces on a baking sheet, and sprinkle evenly with the oil and salt. Turn several times to coat well, and then spread the pieces in a single layer.
Roast the broccoli until slightly golden and tender, about 10 minutes.
Let the broccoli cool until it can be handled, and then coarsely chop.
Heat a dry frying pan over medium-high heat. When it’s hot, add a tortilla, and warm it up, letting it brown lightly. Top evenly with ¾ cup of the cheese, half of the chopped broccoli, and ½ cup of the corn. Lay a second tortilla on top, let the cheese melt briefly, and then press down on the tortilla with the back of a spatula so the cheese sticks the tortillas together.
Using a wide spatula, turn the quesadilla over, and cook until the bottom tortilla is lightly browned and the cheese has melted, 2 to 3 minutes. Transfer to a plate, and then repeat with the remaining ingredients to make a second quesadilla.
Cut each quesadilla in half to serve.
