Eggs are an excellent all round food offering protein and amino acids needed by the body for it to repair itself. They contain many nutrients including vitamin A to benefit eye health, vitamin B12 (fighting depression and tiredness), vitamins D and K (keeping bones strong), iron, zinc and choline (a nutrient needed for the development of memory and learning in the brain).
Peas are packed with several B vitamins (including folate), vitamin C, iron, phosphorous and manganese as well as a great source of soluble fibre. Peas contain more protein than any other vegetable so are a good choice for vegetarians. As not all essential amino acids are not present, they are best combines with eggs, milk or cheese. Research has shown that folate levels are often low in people with depression and anxiety so peas may help with this.
Cheese is an excellent source of protein, vitamin D, calcium (needed for strong bones) as well as other various vitamins and minerals. There is still a lot of conflicting advice on eating saturated fats in dairy foods but recent research has shown that they can help prevent the development of type 2 diabetes. Research has found that the most positive results come from consuming full fat dairy foods. However, like most foods, they should not be eaten in vast amounts but certainly as part of a healthy diet.
