Superfoods: Eggs


A little bit of History:

Eggs have been viewed as symbols of fertility for millennia. Chickens naturally lay less eggs over winter.


Eggs are an excellent source of protein, choline, vitamin B and folic acid levels. The nutrients in eggs also serve to boost your brain function and keep your nervous system in good condition. The lutein protects your eyes against age-related vision loss and cataracts and the niacin content will protect against Alzheimer’s and other forms of cognitive deterioration.


  • Store your eggs in the carton to avoid them absorbing other smells in your fridge
  • If you are in need of some homey comfort food, then try making a quiche with leek and onion
  • Make a tasty omelette by cooking your eggs with chopped parsley, diced red onion and green peppers
  • Eggs don’t have to be boring, just poach them in lemon juice or saute with potatoes and salsa
