Eggs aren’t just delicious. They’re also extremely nutritious, providing us with important nutrients like iron, zinc, and choline.
The updated Canada’s Food Guide recommends filling your plate proportionately with 1/2 vegetables, and fruits, 1/4 whole grains and 1/4 protein foods. Two eggs contain 13 grams of high-quality protein, perfect for the ‘protein foods’ portion of your plate.

This is a super hearty and healthy recipe that incorporates a plethora of veggies, some yummy fats from the avocado, and protein from the eggs. Studies actually show that our bodies better absorb nutrients from veggies when eggs are eaten with them, and the high-quality protein in eggs helps to keep a healthy immune system!

This recipe is BRIL-LI-ANT I honestly wish I’d thought it, but for reals I CANNOT wait to make these! What a time saver. Also I LOVE breakfast sandwiches, they are one of my favorite things to eat, and making them at home would save you so much time and money compared to take out. Also you get to control what ingredients goes into them. This recipe is a WIN.
Whether you’re preparing a meal for one, trying to exercise portion control, have food sensitivities or have picky eaters on your hands, this individual frittata is so versatile, making it your new way to keep everyone happy! I love this recipe because you basically mix up the ingredients and let the oven do all the work. Make sure you have fun with it!

I shared this post on my Instagram (@shortpresents) and it’s such a staple in my diet – I eat it almost once a week. All you need is some cooked quinoa, 2 boiled eggs, and basically whatever greens or veggies you have in your fridge. This protein-packed meal is an ideal choice for my flexitarian and vegetarian friends too! There are no rules, anything can go on top of the protein-packed eggs and quinoa. In this case I added in roasted chickpeas, cherry tomatoes, sliced almonds and pumpkin seeds. Have fun with it, and see what combinations you come up with.
