Scrambled eggs provide the majority of the energy in this meal, along with choline, folate, selenium, and vitamins A, B2, B5, and D. This recipe uses extra egg whites to bump up the protein as well as whole eggs so that you’re getting all of the adequate vitamins and minerals from the yolks.
Salmon is another one of nature’s true ‘superfoods’. Not only does it provide a low-calorie, low-fat source of protein, but it also comes with generous amounts of omega-3 fatty acids, choline, selenium, phosphorus, vitamin A, B2, B12, D, and E.
To top it all off, the avocado adds some super satiating monounsaturated fat, vitamin C, folate, copper, potassium, and a rich and creamy texture.
If you’re looking for more, adding in any of your favourite spices or herbs can boost flavour and nutrient value.
