For so many years we were told to fear eggs because of their cholesterol. But now, research is supporting the idea that dietary cholesterol doesn’t exactly correlate to serum cholesterol in our bodies. This is great news! There is a lot of great nutrition packaged up into an egg like choline, healthy fats, and protein.
Choline is still being researched for all the ways it may benefit us. But what we do know is that choline can be a key player when it comes to pregnancy and fetus development, specifically brain development. To read more about choline and its role during pregnancy and lactation, check out my post. It can also play an important role after pregnancy too. Since our bodies don’t make enough of it we do need to find in food sources like eggs!
I like these eggs as a quick way to get breakfast on the table every day for me and babe. I serve hers crumbled up with a side of oatmeal or yogurt and fruit. I like mine on a breakfast sandwich made with a whole grain english muffin, avocado, and Trader Joe’s Everything but the Bagel seasoning. Hello, delicious.
This time I just did plain eggs but you can chop up some veggies and add them in for even more nutrition power. I tend to go for onions, bell peppers, and mushrooms. Of course, you could also add some other meat proteins (like ham or bacon) and cheese for a really tasty boost. What is your favorite combination?
