The Nerdy Bit
Eggs are great for so many reasons, they give us a source of protein, iodine and essential vitamins and minerals, like Vitamin D, B6, Zinc, Copper and Iron.
Ham is also up there with the protein, along with added Iron. It is also low in fat.
Spinach, well where do you start, it is low in fat and can even lower cholesterol, it is also high in zinc as well as protein, fibre vitamins, calcium, iron the list just goes on.
Cheese, even though it is high in fats, they are good fats and therefor eaten in controlled amounts can help you stay fuller for longer and help you not to snack. It is also packed with protein and calcium. A winner all round in our house.
