Tired in the morning? For an easy breakfast, an egg salad is a go-to recipe for many. This recipe will help to add some extra veggies and make this a balanced meal. Spinach and tomato go surprisingly delicious with eggs and yogurt. Add some goat cheese or cheddar cheese for a delicious twist. This is a good recipe to use up leftovers and customization in general (such as adding sour cream and smoked salmon.)

Depending on what the hens that laid the eggs ate, they can be a source of omega fat, which is good for the brain and joint health.

Soft scrambled eggs are a source of fat-soluble vitamins A, D, E and K, and lecithin – the compound that enables emulsification in recipes such as hollandaise or mayonnaise.
