Spinach Garlic Eggs with Grilled Veggies & Greek Pasta Salad for Brunch!

Daily Tidbit:  I love Brunch; it is my favorite meal!  I love bagels, french toast, croissants, home fries and eggs and bacon and I used to just load up and enjoy all those things back in the day.  Now I try to balance the things I love with a slightly healthier approach (pic above!)  

For some ideas on how to make your brunch a healthy one, check this article at Fitness Magazine out:


Spinach Garlic Eggs, Grilled Veggies & Greek Pasta Salad

Brunch: Large Family Brunch

Greek Pasta Salad (recipe below)
Spinach Garlic Eggs (recipe below)
Grilled Veggies in Balsamic Vinaigrette
5 oz. OJ
Regular Coffee, black

Feeling good as I was able to avoid the Croissants and Bagels!  After all those Potato Chips yesterday and then that yummy Peach Cake last night, it was the right thing to do!

Greek Pasta Salad Recipe:
Cooked Pasta
Raw Zucchini, chopped  (Cucumber would have worked here too)
1 Large Tomato, chopped
1/2 Red Onion, chopped
1/4 cup EVOO
Juice from 1 Lime (Lemon works here too, just didn't have one)
Fat Free Feta cheese (I used lots and lots of this!)
Salt/ Pepper to taste

Mix everything together and let sit overnight.  It is really simple but fresh and full of good simple flavors.

Spinach Garlic Eggs Recipe:
In hot pan heat up 1 tbsp Canola Oil on low heat, add 4 cloves of sliced Garlic to the pan and simmer for a couple minutes, not letting the garlic brown at all.  Add 1 box of thawed frozen spinach (which has also been squeezed dry) to the pan, cover and let it heat up and the flavors mix.   Add 12 beaten eggs to the pan and scramble everything all together.  Add salt/ pepper to taste.  Once the eggs are almost completely cooked, take off heat and add cut cubes of cold cream cheese, mix and cover until ready to eat.
