Ingredients in our Mediterranean Baked Eggs in Avocado 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.
• Avocados- are a great source of vitamins C, E, K, and B-6, as well as riboflavin, niacin, folate, pantothenic acid, magnesium, and potassium. They also provide lutein, beta-carotene, and omega-3 fatty acids. Although most of the calories in an avocado come from fat, don’t shy away!
•Greek Feta Cheese- Feta is a brined, white cheese with a soft and creamy texture. Compared to other cheeses, it’s low in calories and fat. It also contains a high amount of B vitamins, phosphorus and calcium, which can benefit bone health. Additionally, feta contains beneficial bacteria and fatty acids.
•Kalamata Olives- good source of fibre, calcium, vitamin C, vitamin A, vitamin E and vitamin K. They also provide some magnesium, phosphorous and potassium per serving as well as B vitamins.
•Hummus- is a popular Middle Eastern dip and spread that is packed with vitamins and minerals. Research has linked hummus and its ingredients to a variety of impressive health benefits, including helping fight inflammation, improving blood sugar control, better digestive health, lower heart disease risk and weight loss.
•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.
•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

Miss Nichole’s Fit Friday & our Mediterranean Baked Eggs in Avocado Recipe!
For many people winter is the time that they move indoors, their focus turns strength training and off season training. I jump on the treadmill more often and enjoy teaching some extra cycle classes. I give my classes two reminders at the beginning of each and every class.
1) Come into every class with a reason. Get that reason in your brain and focus on it.
2) Everything we do inside helps us outside.
With those two things in mind we are going to focus this week on a strength training workout great for runners. Runners need more than just mileage on their legs, a strong core and upper body will allow for a stronger power house. Working on lower body will allow for runners to dig for some extra power while also preventing muscular imbalances and injuries. Full body movements are ideal, as living breathing animals our body works together, not in segments.
This workout is not about getting it done, this is a workout with a focus. Get stronger, get better, and no injuries. Remember that as you work through quality not quantity.
