Good day to you all!

Yes, I am resurrecting my food blog Eating on Purpose after a long dormancy. With my attention being on my website The Most Selfish Woman in America (http://www.themostselfishwomaninamerica.com/) and my new radio talk show on VoiceAmerica Talk Radio (http://www.voiceamerica.com/show/1990/the-most-selfish-woman-in-america), I have neglected this lovable website, until now.

I will start posting weekly recipes and info on seasonal produce. This time of the year harvests some of the most homey fruits and vegetables. The kind that our memories are made from: apples, pears, grapes, butternut squash, pumpkin, pomegranate, pecans, root vegetables. And we make them even more memorable: baked apples, pears poached in red wine (ok, maybe not but it is fantastic!), mashed sweet potatoes, pumpkin pie, pecan pie… fill in your memory food here.

As my kids were growing up, I would simmer a pot of cloves and cinnamon sticks on the stove when the weather would turn cooler and on through the Winter. Now, when they smell anything seasoned with those spices, they comment on the good memories it brings them. How great is that!?!

So as I continue the tradition, I will think of all the different dishes I usually make at this time of the year, and what the scent of cloves and cinnamon brings to my mind. I will also go to my local farmer’s market and specialty grocery store and see what bins are over flowing with beautiful ingredients. That is your indicator of what is in season and at it’s peak in flavor and nutrition. Note to self: You can’t make a great dish if you don’t have a great product!

Just a reminder: even if you do not have access to a farmer’s market in your area and are shopping in a local grocery store, try to buy product that is from as close to where you live as possible. It has had less travel time. The fresher the produce, the more nutrients still in the product. And always buy organic when ever possible. When your food has more passport stamps than you do, it’s traveled too far!

But today I am going to start you off with what I have for breakfast and why.

In my nutritional research for health and anti-aging foods, I have come up with my own approach to incorporating as many of the “super foods” in my daily intake as possible.

Breakfast is one of the easiest places to get a rainbow of colors and nutrients into your diet, and the perfect way to start off your day.

This is when having veggies prepped comes in handy, but even if you don’t, it is still easy to create this fabulous tasting breakfast.

We are covering brain power, eye power, muscle power, circulation power and skin power here. And it’s all in one meal!

The thought process is that you are sauteing as many nutrients together in your eggs as possible. And I mean ALL of the egg. And it goes without saying that only organic, free range eggs with additional omega-3 should be used. Also, don’t worry about measurements, just wing it. It is the ingredients that are important, not the amounts. And always use organic when possible.

So here you go, for a single serving:

2 tbs. coconut oil, extra virgin olive oil or organic, unsalted butter

1/4 cup white or red onion, chopped

2 cremini or white mushrooms, sliced

3 stalks asparagus, chopped

1/2 medium tomato, chopped

small hand full of baby kale or spinach leaves

2 large organic, omega-3 eggs

sea salt & fresh ground black pepper

sprinkle of dried or fresh oregano

1/8 tsp. tumeric

dash of hot sauce or some diced serrano or jalapeneo

In s skillet, heat the oil or butter, then add the onions, asparagus, mushrooms,oregano and tumeric. Saute for about 3-4 minutes over medium heat, then add the kale, peppers and tomatoes and cook for another 3-4 minutes. Add the eggs, salt and pepper and stir until the eggs are done.

If you don’t add fresh hot peppers, use a dash of hot sauce over the eggs and enjoy!

To top off this nutritional punch, eat an apple or pear. No bread needed because this is a very filling meal. In fact, stop eating bread altogether. But that’s a topic for another time.

Not only have you started your day with an incredible nutritional boost, you have given your body the well-needed nutrients and antioxidants to fend off  whatever the environment will throw at you.

This is how to start your day dictating how you are going to physically and mentally feel. And if you want help with the rest of it, check out my site http://www.themostselfishwomaninamerica.com/.

Until we meet again,

EAT ON PURPOSE!

PS: Let me any comments or ideas you have on this type of breakfast. Is this something that you would try?
