I've fallen in love with quinoa. The little tails are so cute and the taste is fantastic. Love the extra crunch.

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. :) Submitted by CCKELLY3
Adapted from a recipe seen on 101 Cookbooks, this is a spectacular, powerful boost to your morning whether you serve it warm or chill it down for a midday "pudding". Any berries can be used, I prefer strawberries or blueberries, or a mix!Submitted by JO_JO_BA
