Rosemary Feta Burgers- iron rich

Delicious burgers, gone Greek!!


2 organic, Omega-3 eggs
2 cups cooked lentils
1/2 cup einkorn or gluten free flour
1/4 cup oats
1 medium onion, diced
1 garlic clove, minced
1/3 cup diced organic tomatoes or organic tomato sauce
1/3 cup crumbled Organic Greek feta
1-2 TSP rosemary
Dash sea salt
Coconut oil to fry
Sour Cream: Organic Greek yogurt and fresh squeezed lemon

1. Stir all the ingredients for the patties in a bowl, until well mixed.
2. Cook over medium-high heat with coconut oil, about 3-4 minutes on each side. I flipped a few times to get a good crunch on the outer layer.
3. Meanwhile, make a fresh green salad with tomato and avocado. Drizzle with a spritz of fresh lemon and cold-pressed, organic Greek olive oil.
4. Make sour cream with organic Greek yogurt and fresh lemon. You can also add a small spoon of tahini for an added kick. Delicious either way.
5. Plate your salad, add your burgers and top with sour cream.


Cherry Peanut Butter Oatmeal- Omega rich!

Well, I can officially say I am obsessed with nut butter. I love them ALL. As my Trader Joe's Almond Butter just ran out, I have been eating peanut butter. Lighter on the pocket here in Greece.

I do have a Vita-Mix, but I haven't mastered the art of nut butters yet. Probably should get to it!

This morning I made a divine pot of oatmeal and had to share! Hope you will give this yummy recipe a try. Simple and energy-fueling for a cold winter's day.


3/4 cup of soaked oatmeal from evening before (more if you are particularly active or prefer a larger breakfast)
1/4 cup cherries (mine were frozen, I just defrosted the night before next to the soaking oats)
1 TBSP peanut butter, today was smooth PB
1 TBSP hemp seeds
dash of sea salt
Optional: Warmed almond milk

1. Soak oats in oatmeal and a dash of sea salt for 12 hours in filtered water (the evening before works great.) The amount of water doesn't really matter, it will just change the consistency. I use enough water to ensure the oats are submerged and then add about 1/4 cup more. Soaking oats makes them easier to digest and removes the anti-nutrients.
2. Defrost cherries (if they are frozen) the evening before.
3. In the morning, cook the oatmeal and the water it was soaking in. 
4. Cook on medium heat for about 3-4 minutes, adding the peanut butter and stirring.
5. Fold in the cherries and turn off the heat.
6. Place oatmeal in a bowl and top with hemp seed and almond milk. You can also add flax and chia seeds, which will really up the nutrient count- especially your omegas!

Enjoy!
