These are great as a snack, packed lunch or served as part of a meal eaten hot or cold. They are ideal for freezing too, just pop in an airtight container or bag, label and freeze for up to three months and simply defrost overnight in the fridge.
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, omega 3’s and choline (a nutrient needed for the development of memory and learning in the brain). Studies show that egg consumption can help to prevent chronic age related conditions like heart disease, eye degeneration, memory loss and loss of muscle mass. There is no limit on how many eggs we should eat; multiple studies and research has shown that the saturated fats have no effect on blood cholesterol.
Peppers are an excellent source of vitamin C (boosting immunity, helping to prevent asthma and wound healing), vitamin E (healthy skin) and other antioxidants which help to prevent certain cancers, heart disease and inflammation.
Tomatoes are full of vitamin C, antioxidants which are cancer preventative, potassium (essential for maintaining fluid balance and muscle/nerve function) and compounds which prevent blood clots.
Peas are a source of protein (important for building, maintaining and repairing all cells) and like all vegetables, soluble fibre. They also contain B vitamins, vitamin C, vitamin K, and a variety of minerals, including phosphorus, manganese, magnesium, potassium, and iron.
Cheese is an excellent source of protein, vitamin D, calcium (needed for strong bones) as well as other various vitamins and minerals. Recent research has shown that they have little effect on the heart or risks of strokes like previously thought. In fact, the fatty acids in dairy foods help lower bad LDL cholesterol and raise the good HDL cholesterol as well as prevent type 2 diabetes. However, it should not be eaten in vast amounts but certainly as part of a healthy diet.
