Make a Mouthwatering Morning Meal with Eggs & Fresh Produce
Fruits and vegetables are an essential part of any balanced breakfast, and with a light and healthy egg dish as your main course, it's easier than ever to incorporate fresh produce into the menu. Whether you like them scrambled or made into an omelet or frittata, eggs are a versatile source of protein that match up well with a wide variety of fresh ingredients that are low in fat and calories, and high in flavor and nutrition.
Adding colorful and nutritious veggies to your eggs makes for a dish that is satisfying, healthy and delicious, with layers of color, texture and flavor that keeps eating well interesting. Vegetable omelets and frittatas are sophisticated, simple, and perfect for a lightened up springtime breakfast or brunch. These traditional dishes can easily take on a healthy twist when you turn to the produce department for your ingredients, as opposed to higher-fat foods like cheese or breakfast meats.
Eggs are a source of many important vitamins, minerals and nutrients, one of which is choline, a nutrient that is important for brain health and function—perfect for the start of your day! And with the addition of vegetables, eggs become even more beneficial. Try incorporating one (or a combination!) of these healthy ingredients into your favorite egg recipe:
Onion—Add some diced onion to scrambled eggs or a veggie frittata or omelet. Packed with flavor, onions contain a particular antioxidant that demonstrates beneficial anti-inflammatory activity.
Rosemary—Wonderfully aromatic and flavorful, rosemary has a rich taste that is also wonderful with diced, roasted potatoes and eggs. It can help increase circulation, stimulate the immune system, and improve concentration. You're ready for the day ahead!
Tomatoes—Ripe and juicy diced tomatoes add bursts of color and flavor to egg dishes. Plus, tomatoes contain Lycopene, a carotenoid that is believed to have cancer-preventing properties.
Make the meal complete with a bunch of grapes, a handful of berries or some sliced banana, and you have a delicious, balanced breakfast that will keep you satisfied, and get your day off to a stellar start.
