HOT WEATHER TIP

Drinking water is one of the simplest ways to hydrate your body at a cellular level, but many people find drinking plain water to be boring.  Try coconut water, especially after exercise. The electrolytes hydrate you more quickly, it has more potassium than a banana (which you need to replace if you sweat) and it tastes good!


GRILLED CHICKEN QUESADILLAS

2        lbs. Boneless, Skinless Chicken Thighs

          Adobo Seasoning to Taste

12     (10 inch) Flour Tortillas
