NUTRITIONAL BENEFITS:

Eggs:

Considered the “gold standard” for protein quality because their amino acids are the most digestible to humans. One egg contains 6 grams of high-quality protein and all 9 essential amino acids. Eggs promote healthy hair and nails because of their high sulphur content and wide array of vitamins and minerals. Many people find their hair growing faster after adding eggs to their diet, especially if they were previously deficient in foods containing sulphur or B12.

Spinach:

One cup of spinach has nearly 20% of the RDA of dietary fiber, which aids in digestion, prevents constipation, maintains low blood sugar, and curbs overeating. The vitamin C, vitamin E, beta-carotene, manganese, zinc and selenium present in spinach all serve as powerful antioxidants that combat the onset of osteoporosis, atherosclerosis and high blood pressure.

Mushrooms:

A high-quality source of protein and rich in dietary fiber, including those responsible for heart health and lowering cholesterol. Mushrooms are a great source of Vitamin D, help boost your immune system, are rich in antioxidants, and help speed up metabolism.

Capsicum:

Helps in curing many diseases that include lowering blood pressure, reducing cholesterol and warding off strokes and heart attacks, speeding up metabolism, treating colds and fevers, preventing cancer and pain control.
