    3 Eggs-cellent Dishes for Easter Morning

    Greetings!

     

    Easter is just around the corner! This time of year always sparks my love of the incredible edible egg!
    Eggs are nutrient-rich and low calorie! One egg has 6 grams of protein for only about 70 calories.

     

    Eggs are rich in:

    •  Carotenoids in the bright, yellow yolk. Carotenoid-rich diets are associated with longer life spans and lower mortality rate from chronic disease.
    •  Lutein and zeaxanthin, both of which are great for the eyes, protecting us from macular degeneration and glaucoma.
    •  Vitamins A, B5, B6, B12, D, E, & Folate
    •  And they are mineral rich to boot!

     

    Eggs are very versatile as well! Today I am sharing 3 of my favorite recipes that I love for special mornings like Easter.

    Frittata Caprese , a protein and antioxidant-rich powerhouse that’s bursting with Italian flavors. If you love pizza, you’ll love this egg dish!

     

     

    Who says a frittata has to be savory? Try my Orange Raspberry Frittata with Blueberry Sauce ; it’s so yummy that I have served it as a dessert! It’s the perfect pancake replacement!

    Want an egg dish that’s a little different? Try Artichoke with Quail Eggs & Parsley Wasabi Oil . I’ve served this dish as a breakfast, an appetizer and lunch; it’s super-versatile!

    ENJOY!

    This Week at Nina Cucina

     

    GMO Dangers

    Weekly, I get questions about GMOs and their dangers. Take a peek at my article, GMO Dangers . I included a video of Dr. Mercola interviewing Dr. Don Huber, an internationally recognized plant pathologist and Doctor Emeritus at Purdue University. The interview is about an hour so you’ll have to wait till you can make time for it but IT’S WORTH IT. The interview is very informative!

     

    Recipe of the Week

    My recipe of the week this week is a quick and easy egg scramble combining two of my favorite things: avocados & eggs! Check out my Mexican Scramble!
