“The name says it all, fuel good power snack! This snack is perfect for curbing cravings and fueling in-between meals.  Walnuts are one of the few sources of omega 3 fats, which along with the phytochemicals in green tea, have an important role in strengthening brain health. Resveratrol, found in the grape skins, has cardiovascular benefits.”

“Wow! Salmon, avocado, and olive oil—some of the hearts favorite healthy fats! Don’t let the amount of fat in this dish scare you from preparing it, most of the food in this recipe provides the right amount of “good” fat your body requires to stay nourished while preventing diseases.

The highlight of this dish other than it tastes amazing is the delightful vitamin D cheese. Cheese is chalked full of calcium providing about 25% of the recommended daily value. The added vitamin D in cheese and salmon helps the body absorb calcium, allowing this mineral to reach its bone-building potential. “

“These breakfast burritos pack in flavor and nutrition for on-the-go mornings. This recipe can also be made ahead of time so Christy and her family can prepare breakfast quickly so they save time to enjoy their meal together. 

Even though this breakfast is convenient it doesn’t skimp on nutrition. The whole wheat tortilla will provide sustained energy throughout the morning, while the eggs are loaded with high-quality protein, healthy fats, and vitamins and minerals.  Let’s not forget about the cheese! One breakfast burrito will provide 1/3 of the daily recommended serving of dairy for Christy and her growing children.”
