Roasted Asparagus

Source: Martha Stewart

This is my favorite way to prepare fresh asparagus.

Simply place the asparagus on a cookie sheet, drizzle with olive oil, toss a bit, sprinkle with sea salt and freshly ground pepper, then roast for approximately 15 minutes at 425 degrees. Yum!!!

Spinach Breakfast Salad

This was actually a recipe for a breakfast sandwich that I couldn't eat without making a mess, so I simply amped up the amount of spinach and turned it into a salad. :) Enjoy!

A bed of fresh spinach leaves,

topped with 2 slices of whole grain bread (Ezekial bread works well, and it's a great way to disguise it if you're not crazy about the texture), brushed with olive oil, sprinkled with sea salt or Herbamare, oven toasted, then torn into croutons,

add 2 poached eggs (firmly poached), seasoned with sea salt and freshly ground pepper to taste,

avocado chunks (optional),
