*You can make quesadillas with brown rice flour tortillas.
Quesadillas can be eaten for breakfast, lunch, or as a snack to quell hunger pangs.  However, brown rice flour is high glycemic.  When you add cheese and butter, it dramatically lowers the GI.  If you decide to eat quesadillas, make sure you're combining it with fiber and protein to lower the GI.
