Eggs and feta cheese are both great sources of protein, and the egg yolks contain Vitamin A E D K. They contain folate and vitamin B12 as well as Omega 3’s. Despite what you may have heard egg yolks do not cause high cholesterol. Egg yolks contain lecithin which actually combats cholesterol.
Spinach is high in niacin and zinc, as well as fiber, vitamins A & C, thiamin, vitamin B6, folate, calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, copper, and manganese. Which is why it’s one of the super foods.
