With Easter right around the corner, why not consider the nutrition of protein-packed eggs? Eggs are an excellent source of protein which can help athletes recover after a hard workout and help to provide sustaining energy for performance. Eggs are a great natural source of many vitamins, including vitamin D and vitamin K. Both these vitamins are important in bone health. Why not try a quick breakfast of scrambled eggs or an egg salad sandwich for lunch?
Here are a few great nutritious egg recipes to try:
Veggie & Egg Scramble:
½ Small Onion
5 Large Mushrooms
½ Red Pepper
2 Asparagus Stalks
½ Tbsp olive oil
1 tsp Cumin and a ½ tsp Ground Cayenne Pepper or Italian Seasoning
Pepper, to taste
Dice all of the vegetables and toss them in with the oil at medium heat in a small sauce pan. Add your spices here; you can either do a spicy version with cumin and cayenne pepper, or Italian seasoning. Cook the vegetables until they reach a consistency that you like (add any additional vegetable you like).
Scramble the eggs in a separate bowl. Lowering the temperature just a bit, add the eggs to the fry pan with the cooked vegetables and stir until they are cooked thoroughly. Enjoy!
