Veggies’ Best Friend

Packed with protein and low in calories, eggs and veggies can work hand-in-hand. Cooking veggies in eggs make them delectably tender. Here are some egg ideas to make your breakfast nutritious and tasty:

1. Finely chop spinach and add to scrambled eggs as they cook. Sprinkle in cheddar cheese and use as the filling for a small bagel sandwich.

2. Hardboiled eggs pair deliciously with sliced tomatoes. Try on top of crunchy toast.

3. Sauté a skillet full of onions, broccoli, shredded potatoes, or almost any veggie until tender; top with an egg and cover pan until egg is cooked.

4. Create your own frittata or try this one to the left. View Recipe: Summer Vegetable Frittata
