Low Carb Quesadillas dressed up with chicken, broccoli, fresh tomatoes, pizza sauce and mozzarella cheese were the hit of the evening for my daughter and her boyfriend, both going off to college in a month. Little did they care, or even realize that these treats were low carb, as they liberally sprinkled the tasty quarter-rounds with hot pepper flakes. It was no surprise to me when they simultaneously got the idea to go get ice cream. Yes, I’d want ice cream too, if my tongue was on fire! So off they went, living the last remaining nights of summer freedom before the onset of intellectual challenges from two of the most vaunted institutes of higher learning our country has to offer. We shall watch and report.
In the meantime, after you finish your low carb quesadillas, please watch my latest video, which is in the post just before this one. If your family is worried about paying for college, don’t hesitate to look at schools which offer well-developed co-op programs. If your student gets involved with one of these programs, he/she will earn money while going to school half the year and working the other half of the year. There is also a better-than-even chance of getting employed by the co-op employer!

In this video I point out a very useful website which deserves your time and attention.
