Vegetable Omlete with Fresh Fruit

Vegetable Omlete with Fresh Fruit

 

 

Today we are going to enjoy a Vegetable Omlete with Fresh fruit, One of the side benefits of living in a tropical country is that you have access to a very large choice of fresh fruits throughout the year. We grow much of our own so most of it is right in our yard ready to harvest. There are also what I call Truck Farmers although that is probably not the right name for them. They have old pickup trucks and will be loaded down with one or two types of fruit. They go the the farms and purchase fruit and then find a corner of a street and park. They are at the same spot every morning. They are all over the place so for those that do not raise their own fruit it is only a block or two away.

We have a hiking trail that is about 4 miles long and leads from a parking lot, along a beautiful rustic trail down to the ocean. We love to walk this trail and spend some time walking in the sand along the beach. When we walk back to the car, there is an old pickup truck in the parking lot, loaded with fresh coconuts, some in ice water, some not. For a few pesos you get fresh coconut water directly from a coconut. My wife likes hers warm, I love mine chilled, but what a great way to wind down after the walk.

Fresh fruit should be a large part of your healthy wholefoods lifestyle. Look for ways to add a nice variety to the fruits you eat as each brings their own vitamins and minerals to the table. Eat them fresh or enjoy them juiced or in a smoothie. Fresh fruit is a great way to start your day.

The nice benefit of this recipe is that it can be served as breakfast or dinner. Sometimes we forget that food does not have a time to be served except for the limits that we attach to it.

 We owe it to ourselves to eat only the best foods available. My wife raises our own chickens. She has about 100 at any given time, so we always enjoy free range chicken eggs. Try to find places near you where you can purchase eggs and chickens that have been raised in a natural environment.
Male Cancer RibbonBroccoli contains glucosinolates which fight cancer. Stir fry cooking helps retain the largest amount of glucosinolates  while boiling results in the largest loss of this cancer fighting compound.   Spinach is a rich source of flavanoids with inhibit the growth of tumors in the blood vessels. Bell peppers, onions and mushrooms also contain cancer fighting ingredients which make this omlete a great meal choice.
 
Never start any kind of diet to cure any illness without first reviewing it with your doctor and have his/her approval. I am only showing you what I do for myself to help fight my cancer and each of us is different. What works for one may not work for someone else.

Join me every Monday as I share a laymen’s view of these issues including recipes of the better foods for health along with information to help us all age better, healthier, living our best lives now.

  • It is always fun to find a surprise in the garden of a vegetable or fruit that we felt was a thing of the past.
    I do enjoy a fritatta now and a have found it a good way to use up any leftovers. Gralic, Onions and tomato will
    make a wonderful side dish.

  • Somehow it seems that all of my articles are below your standards or have incorrect spelling, short of giving up, I must push on
    in hopes I can help show great foods and possibilities of what you can do with food for all those that might be fighting cancer
    and seniors that care a little concerned about aging gracefully. Hope to be improving as I go along.

  • Your omelette looks delicious. I l made a fritatta for breakfast. I add a little romano cheese to my egg mixture, along with a bit of fines herbs. Today, my vegetables were garlic, onion, and tomato. Also, I added fresh parsley, which I found last week still growing in my garden.
