Description:
Eggs! They are one of the more inexpensive and impressive forms of protein, containing 9 essential amino acids. There are obvious parts of an egg: the white and the yolk. The yolk is the egg's major source of vitamins and minerals, but also fat and cholesterol. However, the yolk also contains an enzyme that helps us digest cholesterol. The white is made mainly of protein. To get the health benefits without excessive fat, eat one yolk per thee whites!
*Healthy Fact!*Naturally raised free run chickens have dark rich yellow yolks whereas the typical factory farmed egg is pale in colour. The darker the yolk, the more vitamin dense it is. This is because of the high quality suitable food the chickens eat and the fact that they are living in a cruelty free environment.


Ingredients:
10 organic free range eggs
1/2 cup organic milk
1/4 cup organic parsley, fresh, minced
1 tsp organic basil, dried
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/4 tsp pepper
2 cups organic broccoli, cooked, chopped
1/2 cup of sun dried tomatoes
2 tbsp cooking oil


Directions:
In a small bowl, soak dried tomatoes in very hot water until softened, 10 to 15 minutes. Drain and chop.
In a large bowl, beat together eggs, milk, parsley, basil, salt and pepper until just blended. Stir in tomatoes and broccoli.

Heat oil in a 10-inch (25 cm) ovenproof skillet over medium heat. Pour in egg mixture. Cook over low to medium heat until eggs are almost set but still moist on the surface, about 10 to 15 minutes, lifting the edges to allow uncooked egg to run to bottom of skillet.
Sprinkle top with cheese. Place under broiler until the cheese melts, 2 to 3 minutes.
Frittata may be served hot, warm or cold. Cut into wedges to serve.

Wellness Tip
The Link Between Smell and Food Choice
If you hold your nose while eating chocolate, you might have trouble identifying the chocolate flavor. This is because taste and smell are closely linked. Smell can account for up to 90% of your ability to detect the flavor of some foods. Those with a decline in the ability to smell due to allergies, medications or aging often eat foods containing higher amounts of salt or sugar. Consider using more spices like basil, cumin or chili powder to increase flavor and offset a decreased sense of smell.

Honouring our Ancestors
In many places across the world, ancestor acknowledgment is an integral part of social and religious life. Nearly every indigenous culture honors their ancestors, and ancestral spirits are a part of everything that they do. They give great honor to their deceased forebears, the same as the grandmothers and grandfathers did before them. They understand that their ancestors have a vast wealth of wisdom and knowledge, available to us in the moment that we choose to ask.

Recipe
Healthy Pasta Sauce
Category: Vegetarian Entrees
Description: Every cook needs a good recipe for marinara sauce. This one can be prepared in less than an hour and used in many ways. It is traditionally served over pasta, but is equally delicious with polenta or rice. It also makes a wonderful sauce for grilled vegetables or baked tempeh or tofu. We don't need to remind you that tomatoes cooked with oil provide a source of lycopene, one of the carotenes linked to protection from prostate cancer.
