I was trying to use up a bunch of little 'scraps' of leftovers from making soup, and decided to splurge on my Sunday brunch and create a heart healthy, whole grain, tummy satisfying omelet. The omega-3 eggs each have 400 mg of omega-3s, and I get mine at Walmart. The quinoa, if you're not familar with it, is an amazing whole grain from the Aztec's. It's the only grain to be a complete protein and it has a wonderfully, slightly nutty flavor which lends itself well to this dish. I get mine bulk at a local co-op for less than half the price, per pound of what you pay in the specialty section of the grocery store for a 6 oz. box. Store in an airtight container in your fridge, because like all whole grains, it has a germ which is prone to going rancid if left out for longer than a few weeks in a warm place.

I served it with a cup of tropical fruit salad to soothe the heat from the salsa and a steaming cup of cafe con leche...wonderful and very filling. Felt like I was eating out at a fancy hotel brunch, in the comfort of my own home. I hope you enjoy, too. :)

This is a blend of roasted buckwheat, eggs and veggies. I really don't like breakfast food so I am always having to come up with something more like dinner.

This was a recipe I picked up at Sunflower Market and tweaked. For example real crab instead of imitation (which often contains dyes and msg).

First chopping your veggies small really does make it taste great, two I'm italian so writing measurements is a stretch especially for a salad. I also love vinegar so my vinegarette has a higher ratio of vinegar to oil. Lastly, if you want to make this a main meal add proscuitto, or tuna, salmon, chicken...whatever. Chop everything really small (i will not put that in the instructions.)

This recipe is courtesy of savory spice shop, za'atar is a middle eastern spice blend and is yummy! traditionally these are made with lamb, but I chose ground chicken. You can use lamb, turkey, and next time I may try buffalo.

A refreshing middle eastern salad that gets its zing from the fresh mint leaves. I know this is very similar to another recipe on, but i found this dish calls for lemon juice instead of balsamic vinegar.

This is orginally Emeril's Beefy Mushroom rigatoni with Gorgonzola sauce, I do not like Gorgonzola so I use fontina because its creamy but not sharp. I also replaced the heavy cream with evaporated milk to make it lower fat.
