Surfers Taking Time to Exercise and Enjoy the Ocean. San Diego, CA

Everyday massage is important to help reduce stress, relax and let go of the many checklists and “to do’s” we all have.  Human Touch® makes more than massage chairs, we also make it an important part of our culture to share tips and resources and help people find ways to incorporate wellness into their every day.

Achieving wellness comes from massage and exercise and also from the way you take care of your mental health as well as your nutritional needs.  The foods you choose have a direct impact on the way you feel, simple.

There are more and more healthy and easy to make recipes showing up all over the web.  Dr. James Rouse, a very healthy and positive member of our Wellness Council, has a few healthy and delicious recipes on his website – Optimum Wellness.

Try this recipe next time for breakfast or lunch and skip traditional quiches, which more often than not are loaded with excess fat and calories. Opt for this extremely light, nutritious and flavorful frittata recipe by Dr. Rouse instead!

Arugula Portobello Frittata

Serves 6
6 eggs
salt and pepper to taste
1 teaspoon butter
1 teaspoon olive oil
1/4 cup chopped onion
1 cup rinsed and chopped Portobello mushrooms
5 ounces arugula leaves (1 bag prewashed or about 7 cups)
1/2 cup shredded cheese, we used sheep’s milk cheese but Fontina works deliciously

Whisk eggs together in a medium size bowl and season with salt and pepper if desired.
Heat butter and oil over medium heat in a well-seasoned cast iron skillet. Add onion and mushrooms to skillet and stir-fry until onions begin to turn translucent and mushrooms are starting to “sweat,” about 3 minutes. Add arugula and continue to stir-fry until arugula is completely wilted and the entire mixture is evenly distributed over the bottom of the skillet.
Preheat oven to broil.
Whisk shredded cheese into scrambled eggs. Pour this egg-cheese mixture over the arugula mixture so that the vegetables are covered. Cook on the stovetop over medium heat for another 5 minutes.
Finish cooking the frittata under the broiler for an additional 2 to 3 minutes until the top of the frittata is beginning to turn golden and the egg is fully cooked through.
