Doesn’t sound very sexy, but adding all your leftover veggies and meat or seafood to the bottom of a shallow dish and adding eggs on top makes for one the simplest, tastiest meals around. At the end of the week I often have some greens that are past their best – and they work great in this dish. Gather all your odd-and-ends – reduce waste and get dinner in under 30 minutes. Winning!
My smoked fish addiction is pretty out of hand. In fact, smoked anything really tickles my fancy…but I am wary of the sodium content. I try to limit my intake to once a week, and am sure to drink plenty of water on that day. That being said, smoked trout is an excellent good source of protein, B vitamins, vitamin D, magnesium and selenium. It also contains plenty of omega-3 fatty acids, which have been linked to a lower risk of heart disease, macular degeneration and Alzheimer’s disease. Try these delicious gluten-free fritters to get your fix at breakfast or lunch!
