Omega 3's For Brunch

The focus on Market to Mouth this past week has been how to get the best deals on superfoods for health and fitness.

Check last Thursday's post for my top 10 tips.

Today I'm posting a Sunday brunch idea featuring ingredients from a list of recommended foods by executive fitness coach, Bonni Doherty.

B stresses the importance of good oils and good fats, for example:
  • Omega 3 eggs
  • olive oil
  • avocados
  • deep-sea fish like sardines, fresh or fresh-frozen or tinned salmon, tinned tuna
  • nuts like walnuts (including walnut oil), almonds (and almond oil) and seeds, like flax (and flax seed oil)
Brunch is often a meal laden with saturated fat-laden pork bacon or sausage, and carbohydrate laden pancakes and waffles.

A lean, light and healthier (as in good oils and fats) Sunday brunch might look something like this:

Eggs with Kale, Avocado and Tomato
1) Wash kale leaves well. Chop into small chunks along with some onion and a garlic clove.
2) Braise kale with onion and garlic until tender -- about 10-15 minutes.
3) Poach, or lightly fry one or two eggs per person.
4) Spoon braised greens into a bowl, top with egg, and decorate with chunks of avocado and halved cherry tomatoes. Serve with ...

Green Salad with Walnut Oil

In a separate bowl toss your choice of salad greens, and chopped radishes for crunch, drizzle with either walnut oil or olive oil, and juice of half a lemon.
