Ingredients in our Egg & Root Vegetable Hash Recipe

  • Eggs- are rich sources of selenium, vitamin D, B6, B12 and minerals such as zinc, iron and copper. Egg yolks contain more calories and fat than the whites. They are a source of fat-soluble vitamins A, D, E and K and lecithin, the compound that enables emulsification in recipes such as hollandaise or mayonnaise.
  • Spinach- an excellent source of vitamin K, vitamin A, vitamin C and folate as well as being a good source of manganese, magnesium, iron and vitamin B2. Vitamin K is important for maintaining bone health and it is difficult to find vegetables richer in vitamin K than spinach.
  • Onions- Onions not only provide flavor, they also provide important nutrients and health-promoting phytochemicals. High in vitamin C, onions are a good source of dietary fiber, and folic acid. They also contain calcium, iron, and have a high protein quality (ratio of mg amino acid/gram protein).
  • Potatoes- Potatoes have fiber, potassium, vitamin C, and vitamin B6 content, coupled with its lack of cholesterol, all support heart health. Potatoes contain significant amounts of fiber. Fiber helps lower the total amount of cholesterol in the blood, thereby decreasing the risk of heart disease
  • Carrots- are a particularly good source of beta carotene, fiber, vitamin K1, potassium, and antioxidants. They also have a number of health benefits. They’re a weight-loss-friendly food and have been linked to lower cholesterol levels and improved eye health.
  • Sea Salt- is mostly composed of sodium chloride, a compound that helps regulate fluid balance and blood pressure in the body. Since it’s minimally processed, it contains some minerals, including potassium, iron, and calcium.
  • Garlic- Garlic fights all types of infections—fungal, bacterial, parasitic, and viral—regulates blood sugar, lowers blood pressure, and lowers cholesterol, used widely as a flavoring in cooking, but it has also been used as a medicine throughout ancient and modern history.
  • Olive Oil- is widely recognized as one of the world’s healthiest oils. In fact, people tend to live longer and healthier lives in regions where olive oil is a staple part. It is rich in healthy monounsaturated fats, contains large amounts of antioxidants, strong anti-inflammatory properties, may help prevent strokes, protective against heart disease.
  • Whole Grain Bread- Whole grains can contain a lot of fiber, see below.

Fiber is one big reason to eat whole grains:

  • They help digestion.
  • They can help lower cholesterol.
  • They lower blood pressure.
  • They can help control weight.
  • They redistribute fat. 
  • They make you feel full.
  • They help regulate blood sugar.

Miss Nichole has awesome fitness tips for us! 

 Well, the days are still a bit jumbled with everything going on, but we are here, strong and pushing on. Three weeks of kids out of school and nestled into the house has proven doable, not easy… but doable. I am learning as we go, and after three weeks I have definitely decided my wine intake can’t keep up with my three year old’s attitude. Time to make a change, time to take a few minutes to breath.

This week we are bringing the stress down, the heart rate down, taking time to breathe deep and move through a few de-stressing poses.

Before we even get to the poses let’s talk about the breathing. There are a lot of types of yoga breathing, we are going to stick with the basic foundation breathing of yoga called Pranayama. If you are new to yoga or unfamiliar with Pranayama breathing I suggest taking some time to follow a couple of videos and really focusing on the breathing aspect of yoga. It has been shown to soothe and revitalize a tired body. Basically it is a way to deepen and control your breathing. If the situation doesn’t allow for yoga poses, just take a few controlled yoga breaths and you will immediately feel the effects.

One of my favorite ways to get into yoga breathing, to find the calming affects of yoga when I am on my own is to simply go through Sun Salutation a few times. This is a series of 12 poses that will soothe the soul and calm the mind. Sun Salutation is effective for the everyone, the beginner yogi, the stressed out mom and that never even considered yoga, the athlete that has done yoga off and on for years as a supplement to other training, or the advanced yogi that just needs to few minutes to recenter and get back into the middle of the chaos.

Breathe deep and carry on!
