Nutrition Corner: Eggs
Eggs are one of nature’s perfect foods. But not all eggs are created equal. Eggs from organic pastured chickens have been shown to contain a different nutritional profile than eggs from conventionally raised chickens. Because the nutrients found in eggs depends on what the hens themselves are eating, eggs from pastured hens contain higher amounts of vitamins and antiinflammatory Omega 3's. In addition, a clearer understanding of how dietary cholesterol impacts blood cholesterol suggests that there is no need to worry about the amount of cholesterol found in egg yolks. Food is best consumed in its natural, whole state, so don't miss out on eating whole eggs, including the yolk, which contains all of an egg's healthy Omega 3's and vitamins A, D, E, and K.
- 1 ½ cups jarred marinara sauce (pick your favorite flavor, such as tomato basil or roasted garlic, just try to find a brand with no added sugar and only real food ingredients)
- 4 eggs
- Pinch sea salt
- Pinch black pepper
- 2 large handfuls mixed greens
- ½ avocado, cut into 4 slices, optional
- Heat tomato sauce over medium heat in a small fry pan until simmering.
- Gently crack 4 eggs on top of the sauce, next to each other but not overlapping. Sprinkle with sea salt and pepper.
- Cover, reduce heat to medium-low, and cook until the whites of the egg are set and the yolks are to your preferred doneness.
- Place 1 handful of greens in each of two serving bowls. Transfer ½ of the shakshuka to each bowl, on top of the greens.
- Top with avocado if using and enjoy.
