I discovered at Costco a gluten free quinoa pasta. Full of protein and fiber this is filling and tastes like regular spagetti. The down side is it is expensive and when you cook it the water gets very creamy looking so you must rinse the pasta when it is done. For my food needs though it is worth it!

I LOVE poached eggs for breakfast and a fast and easy way to poach them is in the microwave. I get a bowl and fill it about 1/3 with water and heat it for 2 minute in the microwave. I then crack open two eggs into the water and microwave for another minute. Once done, I gently pour out excess water and then add salt and pepper to taste. YUM!
I especially love poached eggs over quinoa and herbs or mixed with crumbled saltines.
