Broccoli and Sun-dried Tomato Frittata

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
Eating before Exercise
According to nutrition experts, eating before exercise improves performance. Use these guidelines to design your meal or snack: enough fluid to keep you hydrated, low in fat and fiber, high in carbohydrate, and moderate in protein. Select foods familiar to you. The rule of thumb for eating before exercise is to allow 4 hours for a big meal (about 1,200 calories), 2 hours for a light meal (about 600 calories), and an hour or less for a snack (about 300 calories).

Recipe
Granola with Wheat Germ, Seeds and Blackstrap Molasses
Category: Breakfast
Description: The advantage of making your own healthy homemade granola is that you can avoid some of the hydrogenated fats and corn syrup found in many of the commercial brands. Granola made this way is also a heart-healthy snack food because of the relatively low fat content and the vitamins and minerals supplied by the grains, seeds, nuts and fruits. Oats and other grains are rich in magnesium and other minerals and vitamins which help keep cholesterol low. This recipe I like because of the blackstrap molasses. Blackstrap molasses is a very good source of iron. Particularly for menstruating women, who are more at risk for iron deficiency, boosting iron stores with blackstrap molasses is a good idea--especially because, in comparison to red meat, a well known source of iron, blackstrap molasses provides more iron for less calories and is totally fat-free. Iron is an integral component of hemoglobin, which transports oxygen from the lungs to all body cells, and is also part of key enzyme systems for energy production and metabolism.
So, granola can be a quite healthy as part of a diet rich in natural grains and vegetables - and as a welcome treat for when you are working or playing extra hard.
