Think of this recipe as a healthful springboard. If you’re in the mood, stir in chopped Canadian bacon or low-sodium tuna for added flavor. Drape a small sliver of smoked salmon over the top and sprinkle with dill for a great addition to a brunch table. If you’re lucky enough to have it, smoked trout also makes a tasty topper.

For me, convenience food does not come pre-packaged and require minutes in the microwave. I don’t even own one of those crazy radioactive machines and never intend to buy one. Am I a food snob? Maybe a little but that’s not why I shun ready meals. The real reason I shy away from TV dinners is because they scare me a little – all those preservatives and masses amount of salt and sugar is not what constitutes a decent meal in my book. Read More
