Nutrition Info


Eggs are little packages of nutrition. They provide vitamin A, vitamin D, all the B vitamins, folic acid, and are a rich source of selenium (for thyroid function) and iodine as well as many other minerals. They are an excellent source of choline which helps our cells and nerves to signal, as well as with healthy construction of the cell walls.


Spinach, as well as being very high on Vitamins A and K, and manganese, has great ant-inflammatory effects – inflammation is a precursor to many diseases and conditions, including some cancers. The density of nutrients in spinach puts it at the top of the foods list for goodness.
