NUTRITIONAL BENEFITS

Eggs:

Eggs are a nutritional powerhouse providing as many as 11 different vitamins and minerals, high-quality protein and healthy fats (including omega-3). They are also high in lutein and zeaxanthin, two antioxidants that have been shown to ward off macular degeneration.

Blueberries:

Blueberries (and most berries, for that matter) are high in nutrients, antioxidants and vitamins. They are particularly popular because of their reputation as a cancer-fighting superfood and also promote urinary and heart health and contain cholesterol-lowering properties.

Cinnamon:

Several studies have shown cinnamon to be a blood-sugar regulator – great for hypoglycemics and diabetics. Cinnamon is also used to lower LDL cholesterol levels and reduce arthritis-related pain.
