HAPPY 2016! Anything you are especially pumped to do this year? Sometimes I find it’s best to determine areas where you’d like to see growth in and take baby steps towards doing so throughout the year, rather than set definitive goals that could be tossed to the wayside when life changes/throws you a curveball. One area I always have on my list is the outside: adventuring, exploring, seeing new things. I feel as if at the end of the year I can say that I worked hard, listened well, spent memorable time with those I love most, and saw a handful of new places – then sheesh I’m doing pretty good. A big goal that is always on my daily radar is taking care of my health, Scott’s health, and sharing whatever I learn with others for the sake of their health. Here today I am really amped to bring you a recipe and article I worked on alongside Saveur Magazine and Whole Foods Market to help you recover after a winter adventure (or any adventure/time you are craving a quesadilla).
I have a deep, deep love for anything that grows from the ground. Plants are my daily superheros, constantly saving the day when any need arises in the food department. Even when craving a quesadilla – but I know, “Jessie, QUESO means cheese. WHERE is the cheese,” don’t be mad – but I replaced it with hummus, and it was so bang-er-ang that I don’t miss that cheese one bit. Plus it is packed with essential vitamins and protein, which are both needed if you want to refuel and stay active. Sandwiched with massaged arugula in a brown rice tortilla, and paired with a sweet and tangy mustard dipping sauce, this snack is a winner both in the health and flavor departments! I’m really excited to get to share it with you over on Saveur today, so be sure to pop over and take a peak! Hint: It’s made with a handful of my favorite ingredients from the stellar Whole Foods Market and comes together in ten minutes (!!!). Happy adventuring this winter folks!
