Eggs are affordable breakfast treat that can be creatively served in different ways from poached, scrambled, to sunny-side up. You can even cook a tasty vegetable omelet with it!

The good news is eating eggs in moderation is healthy because of its vitamins and minerals.

According to BBC Good Food,

Eggs are a very good source of inexpensive, high quality protein. More than half the protein of an egg is found in the egg white along with vitamin B2 and lower amounts of fat and cholesterol than the yolk. The whites are rich sources of selenium, vitamin D, B6, B12 and minerals such as zinc, iron and copper. Egg yolks contain more calories and fat. They are the source of cholesterol, fat soluble vitamins A, D, E and K and lecithin – the compound that enables emulsification in recipes such as hollandaise or mayonnaise.”

Peas and Corn

Peas are rich in vitamin K, B Complex (B1, B6, B3, B2), C, folate, fiber, among others.  Corn also has its own set of nutrients including folate, vitamin C, and fiber.
