Eating for Your Health: Eggs

Baked Eggs and Kale

 Over the years eggs have gotten a bad reputation due to the cholesterol they contain.  But, the cholesterol in eggs may not actually bad.  And, at any rate, eggs are a good source of good fat, protein, vitamin A, folic acid, choline, biotin, and potassium.

 They can be especially healthy when you combine them with other healthy foods like kale.  This recipe is super easy and delicious.  It is great any time of the day, but I especially like it for brunch.  Don’t worry is the kale gets a little brown as it will be delightfully crisp.  But, do be careful not to overcook the eggs.  They won’t ever look done, so touch them lightly with a spoon to check for desired doneness.
