I love quesadillas. Really, I love any excuse to eat a lot of cheese.
Step 1: Butter tortilla
Step 2: Fill tortilla
Step 3: Fold tortilla
Step 4: Place in skillet at medium heat, cook until crisp and flip. Allow cheese to melt.
Step 5: ENJOY!

I like to mix up the filling on my quesadillas, depending on what's in the fridge, but I always use Food For Life, Brown Rice Tortillas (available at Whole Foods and Native Sun), so delicious!

Some of my fave options include:

* Black beans/refried beans, onions, bell peppers, cheddar cheese/monterey jack w/ peppers, served with homemade salsa and guacamole
* Sauteed spinach, onions, peppers, goat cheese/feta, kalamata olives
* Sauteed zucchini, onions, peppers, roasted tomatoes, garlic, and mozzarella

Go ahead and get creative! They're so easy to make and a great meal served with a salad or a side of veggies.

I have been allergic to wheat for about 6 years but now I am officially, gluten free. To help my intestines feel better and build back my immune system from my recent gluten attacks my doctor has instructed me to avoid sweets and fruit juices for 3 months.

:) Its been 5 gluten and sugar free days and I feel GREAT! :)
Nothing quite like finding a 'diet' that works.

Chill out, its summer

With the summer heat sneaking into the house at every opportunity, I opted out of using the stove for dinner. Thank you, Kim, for the idea to "CHILL OUT" in the kitchen. Look at her site for other GF, no bake recipes.
Mostly RAW Veggie Wraps
* Food For Life Brown Rice Tortillas
* Zucchini, cut in strips
* Bell Pepper, cut in strips
* Onion, cut in thin strips
* Handful of spinach
* A couple of spoonfuls of garlic hummus
Fill tortilla, wrap, and enjoy! Serve with sliced watermelon (or if you are lazy like me, cut watermelon in half and enjoy with a spoon)
