Eggs are an excellent source of choline and selenium, and a good source of high-quality protein, vitamin D, vitamin B12, phosphorus and riboflavin. In addition, eggs are rich in the essential amino acid leucine , which plays a unique role in stimulating muscle protein synthesis. Egg yolks also contain beta carotene which is a pre-cursor to Vitamin A - great for healthy skin, hair and nails.
The humble potato in this dish provides the carbohydrate, potassium and energy that we need to perform at our best. Although often underrated, potatoes are a great source of Vitamin C and contains more potassium than a banana!
The tomatoes in this dish add to the richness of flavour while also being a major dietary source of the antioxidant lycopene, which has been linked to many health benefits, including reduced risk of heart disease and cancer. They are also a great source of vitamin C, potassium, folate and vitamin K.
