Owieee, I’m hooked on arugula right now. Ever since I heard on the Dr. Oz show how healthy arugula is for you, I tried it… I put it on sandwiches, on top of pasta, in omelets… baby arugula is the best (I buy Earthbound Farms brand). This omelet (or scrambled eggs if that’s easier) is quick and easy:
Omelet with Feta, Arugula and Tomatoes
2 eggs beaten
Can add anything your heart desires, onion, leftover chicken Italian sausage, more veggies…
Heat a 1/2 teaspoon of olive oil in a non-stick pan (or more if using a regular pan). Add the eggs, then add the toppings, pepper… (feta has enough sodium, don’t need salt)
Can either make an omelet with it or scrambled eggs.
Oooooh, and this will keep you going for a while! You might want to have 1/2 banana for dessert… read on…
From the Dr. Oz website:
Everyone knows that leafy greens are good for you. And arugula is one of the better choices for health. It contains two cancer fighters called kaempferol and quercetin. Researchers have shown that diets containing arugula can reduce the risk of lung cancer. Arugula is great to use in a salad, or even mixed into hot pasta coming off the boil. You can also arrange it as a bed of tasty greens on which to put other cooked or raw foods. t’s beautiful and healthy.
Tip: Look for baby arugula. The young leaves are sweet and nutty tasting. When the plant gets bigger, the leaves can have a slightly bitter taste.
Fresh fruits are an obvious healthy choice, but did you know that bananas contain cancer fighters? They are called catechins and delphinidin, and studies have shown diets rich in bananas and other fruits can reduce the risk of breast cancer.
Tip: Have half a banana a day with breakfast. It’s an easy way to sneak a cancer fighter into your diet, right at the start of each day.
