Eggs are nutrient powerhouses. They're high in protein, with 7 grams per egg, contain healthy fat, iron and antioxidants like lutein and zeaxanthin, both great for eye health. Cooked veggies are often easier to digest than raw veggies, making them perfect for tossing into a variety of dishes you probably make often like eggs, soups, stews, pastas, smoothies and sauces.
