… well here we are, the first day of two thousand and sixteen and isn’t it glorious! We’ve just been at a wedding in London so I imagine we’re more than hungover… much like the rest of you I presume so craftily this post comes to you by the power of forethought, good planning and a little quiet time stolen in the wee hours of a Christmas evening. Now, if you’re feeling anything like me at this point I really would be happy never to eat anything else again but reality – and life – has a way of getting in the way of these kind of plans so lets at least try shall we? As it happens the humble egg happens to be a very healthy food source – they are a natural source of many nutrients including high quality protein, vitamins and minerals, plus a medium egg contains less than 70 calories which is a win win if you ask me. Eggs are naturally rich in vitamin B2 (riboflavin), vitamin B12, vitamin D, selenium and iodine. They also contain vitamin A and a number of other B vitamins including folate, biotin, pantothenic acid and choline, and essential minerals and trace elements, including phosphorus.
So folks, lets start the year on an egg… it can be any kind of recipe, sweet or savoury, as long as to you, it has an element of health and sets you off in the right direction for 2016…
