For a quick, spicy and tasty breakfast use some of the gazpacho from our last recipe as a sauce for scrambled eggs. Add a little pico-de-gallo and some yogurt and, Enjoy!
From time to time we publish recipes that on the surface, may not traditionally be considered “healthy”. However, there is one common theme; they are made fresh, with whole foods that taken individually are superior to any “processed” product. We present recipes in the same mind set for many reasons. One, the recipe is considered to be delicious. Two, it is meant for an occasional meal and not something you would eat every day or a lot of at any one sitting. Three, it is made with whole, fresh ingredients. So the point is, if you what a great entrée/snack/breakfast/desert and feel like being a little adventuresome, make it yourself, indulge and be proud of it!
PS – Any of our recipes may be altered by substituting or removing ingredients for dietary or preference reasons. If you have an aversion or need to reduce salt intake, for example reduce it or leave it out. Recipes are guidelines not written in stone. If you don’t like beets for example, substitute another root crop that you do like.
Our goal is to explore the world of whole foods and their delicious combinations and encourage everyone to join their own exploration while avoiding the health risks which may be associated with faux foods, artificial ingredients, and chemically altered food sources.
We hope cooking will become a fun and rewarding pass time for you and yours!
