Eggs have been given a bad reputation due to their cholesterol content, but they are packed with goodness. We now know that our cholesterol is impacted more by the amount of saturated fats we eat, not the cholesterol we eat. Eggs contain selenium, vitamin D, B6, B12, zinc, iron and copper. Some even contain the heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids (this will be noted on the carton and depends on what the chickens were fed). Eggs are a source of high-quality protein and are relatively inexpensive. The protein in eggs is complete, meaning it contains all of the essential amino acids. Amino acids are the building blocks of protein in our bodies, and we must get the essential ones from food because our body cannot synthesize them. Most of the protein in eggs is found in the egg white. But don’t forget about the yolk! Egg yolks contain antioxidants (vitamins A, D, E and K), choline (an important part of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine), folate, vitamin B12, tryptophan and tyrosine.
- 2 green, yellow, orange or red bell peppers
- 8 eggs
- 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
- 1/2 small red chili, diced finely
- Handful of shredded spinach leaves
- 3 cups baby plum tomatoes
- 1 teaspoon olive oil
- 1 teaspoon sea salt
- Preheat the oven to 400 F and grease a large baking tray.
- Cut the peppers into 1/2-inch slices (making rings) and place eight of the most even, largest slices on to the baking tray. Crack an egg into each pepper “ring” carefully. Sprinkle diced chili and salt atop each egg.
- On the same tray, add the tomatoes and drizzle with oil and season lightly with salt. Place in the oven for 8 to 10 minutes and bake until the eggs are cooked to your liking.
- Serve with your choice of healthy bread and shredded spinach.
