A few health benefits of this dish

 

Eggs contain some of just about every nutrient that the body needs (1).  Choline is necessary for building cell membranes, synthesizing neurotransmitters, and promoting fat transport and absorption in the body (2).  Eggs are an excellent source of choline, which is a nutrient that we must get from the foods we eat each day.  Antioxidants like lutein, zeaxanthin, and vitamin A, which support the retina and protect our eyesight, are abundant in eggs (1) (3).  To read more health benefits of eggs head to our Eggs in a Carrot and Potato Nest recipe.


Cabbage is a cruciferous vegetable rich in several essential micronutrients, like vitamin C for healthy skin, bones, muscle, and blood vessels, as well as bioactive compounds like glucosinolates, anthocyanins, and polyphenols for anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and chemo-protective effects (4) (5) (6).  For more cabbage recipes and health information check out our Chicken Cabbage Salad with Sesame Vinaigrette and the Jalapeno-Lime Cod over Mint Cabbage Slaw recipe blog posts.
