Warmer weather is finally here, and it’s time to start planning lighter meals as we move towards summer, which will arrive any minute! Tuna is surely a favorite food that many have been eating since childhood, but there are lots of new ways to enjoy tuna besides the familiar tuna salad sandwich. Bumble Bee has just introduced several new products to its line of top quality albacore tuna, which are ideal for easy snacks and light lunches, and as key ingredients in hot or cold summer entrees. Let’s take a look at what’s new on the supermarket shelf!

Cooking With Gail Presents: Quick & Delicious Quesadilla Made with Reduced Fat Tortillas and Hass Avocados!

Like many transplanted Californians living in Manhattan, I am always on the lookout for good Mexican food, which can be a challenge. That’s probably why I generally have a package of tortillas in my fridge, so I can satisfy a Mexican food craving on short notice by whipping up a tasty Quesadilla with whatever I have on hand. Because it’s the little things that make a difference.

This past week, I attended the Editor Showcase press event featuring healthy and nutritious foods. One of my favorite exhibitors was the La Tortilla Factory, where they were serving mini chicken wraps in their booth, made with their yummy reduced fat flour tortillas. Smart & Delcious Flour Tortillas have 1/3 fewer calories of regular flour tortillas, and they taste amazing. I made sure to toss a package in my swag bag as I made my rounds

La Tortilla Factory

Avocado Central Dot Com was also on hand, representing Hass Avocados, offering many delicious avocado recipes to sample and promoting healthy facts about Avocados — the world’s most misunderstood fruit. They also had a big bowl of Hass Avocados to give away, so you can be sure one found its way into my bag, because I already knew I was going to be bringing that creamy avocado fruit together with my newly acquired package of tortillas.

Today I made this delicious lunch for myself:
