Egg, potato and cauliflower curry
( SERVES 4 )
Eggs truly are an incredible food. I guess it makes sense that something containing everything needed to create new life will have an abundance of important nutrients. Eggs are a complete source of protein, meaning they contain all 20 amino acids needed to build body tissue. They also contain calcium, B vitamins including B12, and vitamin A. These nutrients, along with fat and cholesterol, are mainly contained to the yolks, whereas the white is mainly protein.
