Nutritious breakfast provides us with much needed energy to jump start our day.
Cooking breakfast from scratch, in our extremely busy lifestyle, is almost impossible on weekday mornings. However, weekends may be more relaxing, and allow extra time to prepare something special for our family.
The Great Lent is here already, at least for the Eastern Rite Catholics, therefore I will share my new meatless recipe for Portobello Veggie Burgers.
These burgers are not only great for lent, but anytime when you feel like taking a break from eating meat.

I used to purchase frozen Garlic Bread, or even the fresh one in the bakery section of my grocer.
However, once I tried making it at home, I am sold on it, and it is my favorite accompaniment with pasta dishes, or tossed salads.
It is so simple to make, since you use ready made French Baguette, or Italian Bread.
We always have been told that eating fish is good for our system, especially due to the Omega-3-Fatty-Acids it contains.
Actually, there is a lot of truth to that, since fish is a low-fat, high protein food.
However, we have to be well-informed shoppers, in order to actually select the fish which is healthy for our consumption.
While shopping for fish, or enjoying it in a restaurant, we should not only pay attention to the type of fish we are selecting, and the price range, but also its origin:
Wild caught, or Farm-Raised/Farm-Bred
Imported, or from USA
If you have been following my blog, you already know that I am very impressed with The Fat Smash Diet, and love following all the phases at least once every year, with very rewarding results.
Some people think it is too harsh (no coffee or alcohol for 9 days…wow…), but it is perfect for my taste and my lifestyle.
