Eggs in Tomato Sauce with Vegetables
If your loved one is a fan of something on the savory side, this tomato sauce and egg dish with kale from Eating Well will be a hit! Some definite bonus points for this healthy winter breakfast recipe are the fact that it isn’t packed with empty carbs, and it has lots of nutrients from the kale! We think your loved one will really enjoy it. The ingredients in this breakfast are:
Frozen chopped kale
Salt and pepper
Low-sodium marinara sauce
To make it, first preheat your oven to 350 degrees, and heat the olive oil in a nonstick ovenproof skillet. Add in the kale with salt and pepper, and cook for a few minutes. Next, stir in the marinara sauce and bring the mixture to a simmer. Then, using the back of a large spoon, make open spaces in the sauce. Crack an egg directly into each space. After that, season the eggs with salt and pepper. Finally, transfer the pan to the oven and bake until the egg whites are set and the yolks are still soft.
Salmon and Avocado Omelet
This healthy winter breakfast recipe from Eating Well, an avocado and smoked salmon omelet, is the perfect breakfast! Eating fish can aid in better sleep, alleviate arthritis symptoms and even protect from disease. This quick and easy omelet should definitely be on the winter breakfast menu! Here’s what you’ll need to whip it up for your loved one:
Milk of choice
You’ll start by whisking eggs with milk and salt in a small bowl. Next, heat the olive oil in a nonstick skillet over medium heat. Then, add the egg mixture and cook just for a few minutes, until the bottom looks set but the center is slightly runny. Flip the omelet over and cook until set. Lastly, transfer your omelet to a plate, top with sliced avocado, salmon and basil. If you wish, drizzle with a small amount of olive oil, and enjoy!

While our physical health is strengthened by a healthy diet and regular exercise, it's important to take care of our mental health, too! We prioritize our residents' mental wellbeing by encouraging a variety of mindfulness practices. One of these practices, meditation, is a powerful strategy that can lower stress levels and even alleviate physical pain.
We want each of our residents to always feel safe, supported, and happy, and that starts with cultivating social and emotional wellbeing. If you're interested in creating a mindful meditation routine for yourself or your loved one this winter, take a look at these meditation tips from our sister community in Fountain Valley, California: ow.ly/m0sc50QFoVq
