Egg White, Spinach and Mushroom Scramble

Posted Sep. 26, 2016, 11:27 am

This delicious recipe was the favorite of one of my patients; it came from her Sardinian grandmother who lived to the ripe old age of 102. Its ingredients benefit the heart, enhance immunity and aid digestion; mushrooms are high in fiber with virtually no fat and are very helpful in lowering cholesterol and cleansing the intestinal tract while the magnesium and potassium in chard or spinach give your heart a boost. Serves two. Enjoy!

JENNY: If there were a competition for “Best Smile,” Jenny would get first place! A staff and volunteer favorite, Jenny is one of the happiest dogs we’ve ever known. Her tail wags non-stop and she is an affectionate, gentle, and tolerant dog. Jenny has allergies and sensitive skin and would be a great fit for somebody who prefers cuddling on the couch and moonlight strolls rather than sunbathing! Nothing seems to faze Jenny. No matter what, she always has a positive demeanor and a great big grin. Jenny can be very playful with other dogs, but would also be happy as your one and only. Jenny is an absolute gem. Adopt her and start every day with a smile!
