One of my ‘go to meals’ for breakfast is the combination or whole milk, fried eggs and fried potatoes. All three are very affordable, store well and preparation is fast!
Whole milk – 1 cup of whole milk contains:
- 30% DV of calcium
- 7.9 grams or 16% DV of protein
- 24% DV of vitamin D
- 18% DV of vitamin B12
- 11 essential vitamins and 8 essential minerals
Fried egg benefits – Not only do eggs provide high quality protein, they also contain 11 vitamins and minerals, omega-3 fatty acids and antioxidants. And this means they can make a valuable contribution to daily nutrient requirements.
A single large boiled egg contains:
- Vitamin A: 6% of the RDA
- Folate: 5% of the RDA
- Vitamin B5: 7% of the RDA
- Vitamin B12: 9% of the RDA
- Vitamin B2: 15% of the RDA
- Phosphorus: 9% of the RDA
- Selenium: 22% of the RDA
- Eggs also contain decent amounts of vitamin D, vitamin E, vitamin K, vitamin B6, calcium and zinc
Benefits of eating potatoes
Potatoes are a good source of fiber, which can help you lose weight by keeping you full longer. Fiber can help prevent heart disease by keeping cholesterol and blood sugar levels in check. Potatoes are also full of antioxidants that work to prevent diseases and vitamins that help your body function properly.
To me this results in a very healthy meal for the beginning of any day.
