To make the omelet, preheat a nonstick skillet over medium heat and coat it with cooking spray. Add 1 cup of chopped broccoli and cook for about 3 minutes. Meanwhile, combine 2 beaten eggs, 2 tablespoons of crumbled feta cheese and 1/4 teaspoon of dill in a small bowl. Pour the egg mixture over the broccoli and cook for 3 to 4 minutes. Flip the omelet and cook until done, about 2 minutes more. Serve with rye toast.

To make the quinoa salad, toast 1 1/2 cups quinoa in a 12-inch skillet for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Stir in 2 1/2 cups water and 1/2 teaspoon salt, and heat to boiling over high heat. Reduce heat to low and simmer for about 15 minutes, or until all of the water is absorbed.

Meanwhile, stir together 2 tablespoons of reduced-sodium soy sauce, 1 tablespoon rice vinegar, 1 teaspoon sesame oil and 1 teaspoon of grated fresh ginger in a small bowl. Add two thinly sliced green onions and 1 tablespoon of water. When the quinoa is cooked, transfer it to a large serving bowl and stir in the soy-sauce mixture. Mix well. Top with 1/4 cup sliced, natural, toasted almonds, and serve.
