I have a crazy quesadilla fetish. I love them! I eat quesadilla’s at least once a week. They’re an easy wheat-free, dairy-free (and no sugar!) meal. Have it for lunch or dinner.

2 corn tortillas (I love Mission White Corn tortillas)
1/4 c Lisanatti Almond Jack Cheese
1 small organic chicken breast, grilled & sliced
3 T black beans, drained
3 T salsa (love Chachies)

Grill chicken breast in George Foreman or on stove top. Top one tortilla with cheese, chicken, black beans and salsa. Place in skillet on medium heat. Place additional tortilla on top. Grill for 1-2 minutes or until cheese begins to melt and then flip over to other side. Grill an additional 1 minute or until cheese and salsa are completely melted and warm. Cut into pieces and top with salsa and guac.

It’s finally here!
20 Something Manifesto is a book filled with 20-something stories, meant to empower 20-something’s into living their best life. Author Christine Hassler, accomplishes exactly this.

Read my true story of inspiration after marriage and divorce (twice!) during my 20’s. Not surprisingly, what appeared at the outset to be my biggest life mistakes quickly became my greatest lessons. Had I not been married, I would never have become the fabulous Heather that I am today. πŸ˜‰ Incidentally I learned that it had NOTHING to do with the boys and everything to do with my growth and development as a woman.

Order a copy today! It’s a perfect gift for the 20-something in your life or for your own reading pleasure.

Much love,

“Today would be a perfect day to fall in love with YOURSELF.” (caps added) – Alan Cohen

I could not have said it better. Today, do something incredibly indulgent just for YOU. Buy an organic dark chocolate bar, get a mid-day pedicure or spend an afternoon having tea with a friend. Whatever it is, today is about YOU.


Much love,

Oprah never ceases to amaze me. I’m not a huge book club fan (I thought her public shaming of James Frey was over the top and I read Eat. Pray. Love. far before she told me to) BUT she’s doing something really amazing that you need to know about.

She’s joined forces with Eckhart Tolle (author of the Power of Now – if you haven’t read it – do so – it rocks!) to offer the world an incredible opportunity – join an online class with Oprah and Tolle to dissect his newest book, A New Earth: Awakening to Your Life’s Purpose. Wow!

I love Tolle and the book sounds fabulous.

If you decide to take part in the online class or have read the book – leave a post here. Otherwise, I’ll see you online. The class begins March 3rd and its free. Thanks Oprah!

Happy Reading & Life Purpose Finding!

With Valentine’s Day quickly approaching, I’m looking for goodies beyond heart-shaped milk chocolate (lame!) that add a bit more zest to my V-day sweet tooth.

Recently I discovered a yummy dessert – Purely Decadent Dairy-Free Gluten-Free Cookie Dough soy cream. Scoop up some of this goodness and add 1/2 a sliced banana and a handful of carob chips for an indulgent V-day treat.

In the meantime, I’ll be a cooking up a lovely V-day dessert…so stay tuned for pictures and the recipe.

What are you making for Valentine’s Day (or for the week)? Do share! I purposely avoid this commercialized holiday and stay in and feel the love…what are YOU up to?

Happy Eating & Cooking!
