  • Why do I like it?

I can't say enough good things about Clean Food Dirty Girl - it is one of my favorite sites.  I found the site when the creator, Molly Patrick posted a recipe on One Green Planet.  Her approach is non-judgmental, welcoming and funny.  Each Saturday she sends out an email to those who sign up, with encouraging words about life and healthy eating.  

These two recipes are on Molly's website and also are part of her weekly meal plans.  I decided to pay for the plans to see how the recipes were and am thrilled with how terrific they have been. I highly recommend the investment if you are interested here's the link.  

Both of these were easy, the instructions are simple to follow.  Molly has carefully laid out the recipes in order with additional instructions for each night.  She is very inventive with using the leftover dishes and creating a week's worth of healthy meals.

The quesadilla was a big hit in my house, I made it several times in the same week.

  • What did I change from the original recipe?

I thought I had sunflower seeds but discovered they were actually pumpkin seeds so I swapped this ingredient. 

I don't really like tarragon so I omitted this herb.
