Many people eat fried or boiled eggs for breakfast. Eggs are rich in various nutrients, so there are cases where they are considered ‘perfect food’, but there are also many nutrients that are lacking. What foods complement eggs?

◆ Eggs are a treasure trove of nutrients… Protein, Calcium, Iron, Vitamin ADE, etc.

In addition to protein that is good for muscles, eggs are rich in various nutrients such as vitamin A (maintaining eyesight-cell protection), vitamin D (immunity-calcium absorption), vitamin E (delaying aging), iron (blood health), calcium for strong bones, and phosphorus. It is the most ideal combination of essential amino acids that the human body needs and must consume with food. One egg contains about 7 grams of protein, which helps maintain muscle. Choline is also rich in maintaining cognitive function.

◆ Vitamin C, a nutrient not found in eggs… Broccoli, tomato, kiwi, etc.

Vitamin C, which is good for immunity and prevents cell damage, is not found in eggs. It’s good to have foods rich in vitamin C, such as broccoli, tomatoes, and kiwi. Broccoli contains 98 mg of vitamin C per 100 g. There is 307mg of potassium per 100g, which discharges salty components (sodium) from the body. Potassium is effective in protecting the heart and lowering blood pressure. Vitamin C, which is lacking in eggs, a protein food, can be supplemented. The taste is a little off, but it’s good to cut it finely and eat it with eggs.

◆ Cherry tomatoes… Vitamin C supplementation, synergistic effect with eggs

Cherry tomatoes are rich in various nutrients such as vitamins A, B1, B2, C, and folic acid. There are components of the eye retina, such as lutein and zeaxanthin, so it can create a synergistic effect with eggs with a lot of vitamin A. Lutein has the effect of lowering blood pressure and cholesterol levels, so tomatoes are often used in the diet of hypertensive patients (National Institute of Agricultural Sciences). It is also good for controlling blood sugar in diabetic patients. Lycopene blocks the oxidation of cells in the body and lowers the incidence of various cancers (prostate cancer, lung cancer, breast cancer, etc.) and cardiovascular disease.

◆ Bean sprouts soup with barley rice… Homemade meals are also highly efficient in the morning.

Let’s go back to the old breakfast diet, away from sugary jam on white bread toast. If you make bean sprout soup the day before, you just need to reheat it. If you eat it with brown rice and barley rice, it can be a hearty breakfast. Bean sprouts made from soybeans have a lot of protein that is good for maintaining muscles. During soybean germination, vitamin C is newly formed and the rate of protein digestion and absorption increases. If you drank alcohol the day before, aspartic acid can help you get rid of a hangover. In the morning, ‘home cooked meals’ are the most efficient. There are almost no processed ingredients, so you can open a comfortable day.
