Eggs

Eggs were given a really hard time in the eighties but now they are back and more super than ever and that is great news for egg lovers. It has been proven that eating eggs will not give you high cholesterol as originally reported. In fact, eggs are full of high-quality proteins, vitamins and minerals and should be a part of any healthy diet.  An egg is a compact package of nutrition which provides every vitamin except vitamin C and a host of essential minerals as well as vitamin B12, and folate. Eggs are also a rich source of vitamin K and just one egg contains one-third of the daily recommended amount for women.  I 

recommend two or three servings of eggs per week.

 

Spinach

Spinach is my favourite super food and I am saving the best for last!. It contains a cross section of phytonutrients and antioxidants including vitamin K, coenzyme Q10, folate, iron, and the carotenoids - lutein, zeaxanthin. Spinach is also an excellent source of vitamin C, beta carotene and vitamin E. An average serve of natures finest super food provides 5 mg of vitamin C, which is an eighth of the recommended daily intake. It is also full of antioxidants.
