Eggstatic

Natures very own multivitamin features in both our food and treatment treatment recipes this week, with good reason.

The egg will nourish from within by:

  • Reducing the risk of age related eye conditions due to the antioxidants Lutein and Zeaxanthin, which are contained in high quantities in eggs.
  • Increasing lean muscle mass with its essential amino acid profile.
  • Improving your memory by feeding your brain with the choline nutrient found in it.

The best way to get those nutrients in:

  • Snack on them – A boiled egg is a quick, simple, satisfying snack. Add paprika and other spices for a kick or wrap them in a lettuce leaf with some additional raw veggies.
  • Add them in – Add an egg to stir-fries, soups, curries and other dishes for a great texture and flavour.
  • The old fashioned omelette is one of the easiest, quickest, simplest meals you can make. Our fave omelettes contain a mix of good fats, vegetables and proteins, try these combos with a big side salad for a quick, easy lunch or dinner this week:
  • Pumpkin, pine nuts, lamb
  • Prawns, green capsicum, ginger, chili and coconut
  • Brocollini, almonds and nutmeg
