Greek Omelet 

Print¬†Friendly 

Description:
With flavors reminiscent of the classic Greek spanakopita, this easy omelet is just right for a light dinner or brunch. Frozen leaf spinach makes it ultra-quick.
Spinach nutrition is amazing. The calcium content in spinach and the other dark leafy greens mentioned above strengthens bones. Spinach and other dark leafy greens like kale, collards, Swiss chard, turnip greens and bok choy are loaded with calcium, folic acid, vitamin K and iron. Spinach is also rich in vitamin C, fiber and carotenoids. Add its lutein and bioflavanoids and spinach is a nutritional powerhouse. Eggs are a rich source of nutrition and protein.


Ingredients:
1/4 cup cooked spinach
4 large eggs
1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese (2 ounces)
2 scallions, thinly sliced
2 tablespoons chopped fresh dill
Freshly ground pepper to taste
2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil


Directions:
1. Squeeze spinach to remove any excess water. Blend eggs with a fork in a medium bowl. Add feta, scallions, dill, pepper and the spinach; mix gently with a rubber spatula.

2. Set a rack about 4 inches from the heat source; preheat the broiler.

3. Heat oil in a 10-inch pre seasoned caast iron skillet over medium heat. Pour in the egg mixture and tilt to distribute evenly. Reduce the heat to medium-low and cook until the bottom is light golden, lifting the edges to allow uncooked egg to flow underneath, 3 to 4 minutes.

4. Place the pan under the broiler and cook until the top is set, 1 1/2 to 2 1/2 minutes. Slide the omelet onto a platter and cut into wedges.

Wellness Tip
Foot health
Many foot problems result from poorly fitted shoes. A few buying tips: Try shopping for shoes in the middle of the day, as feet tend to swell most at this time. Strive for about a 1/2 inch of space between the end of the foot and the tip of the shoe. Wear the type of socks or stockings that will be worn with the shoes. And finally, consider having both feet measured. Feet can vary in size.

Recipe
Blueberry and Almond Cake. No Sugar. No Butter. No Flour.
Category: Desserts
Description: This blueberry and almond cake has no sugar, flour or butter, but it still tastes great! Make it at the weekend and serve with berries and Greek yogurt.

Health Benefits of Almonds are a great source of vitamin E, with 25g providing 70 percent of the recommended daily allowance. They contain more calcium than any other nut which makes them great for vegetarians who do not eat any dairy products.

Health Benefits of Almonds are that they are high in antioxidants and their potential benefits for the nervous system and for brain health, there is exciting new evidence that blueberries can improve memory. In a study involving older adults (with an average age of 76 years), 12 weeks of daily blueberry consumption was enough to improve scores on two different tests of cognitive function including memory. While participants in the study consumed blueberries in the form of juice, three-quarters of a pound of blueberries were used to make each cup of juice. As participants consumed between 2 to 2-1/2 cups each day, the participants actually received a very plentiful amount of berries. The authors of this study were encouraged by the results and suggested that blueberries might turn out to be beneficial not only for improvement of memory, but for slowing down or postponing the onset of other cognitive problems frequently associated with aging.
New studies make it clear that we can freeze blueberries without doing damage to their delicate anthocyanin antioxidants.
