What is Ratatouille?
Ratatouille is a French dish made of eggplant, zucchini, bell pepper, tomato, onion, garlic, and herbs. However, we do not use tomatoes to avoid added moisture to the dish in this recipe. The herbs bring out the flavor of the vegetables, and it pairs amazingly well with the eggs!
Are Eggs Good For You?
Eggs are one of my favorite sources of vegetarian protein. You can cook them in so many different ways, and they pair well with so many other ingredients. But are eggs good for you? Eggs are incredibly nutritious. Indeed one egg contains 70 calories for 6g of protein and 5g of fat. Eggs are rich in vitamins A, B2, B5, B12, and selenium. Prefer pastured eggs if you can find them at your local market!
Can you eat Eggs Every Day?
Eggs are high in cholesterol because of the yolk (212mg of cholesterol per egg). However, 1 or 2 eggs a day for healthy people seems to be okay and not associated with increased risks of heart disease. Eggs are amazing when part of a balanced diet!
