If you’re not eating eggs regularly, you’re missing out on a real staple of nutrition. ⠀
One large egg contains 6-7g of protein, an abundance of important vitamins and minerals, omega 3/6 fats (brain and heart health) and GOOD cholesterol (yes I said good lol). ⠀
They’re cheap, quick to make and can be cooked up in a variety of ways.⠀

– lean cut of beef (flank or top sirloin)⠀
– whey protein/plant-based protein powder⠀
– plain greek or Icelandic yogurt
