1 cup chopped bell pepper
Cook and eat
Eggs and bell peppers are my go to breakfast items. Quick, easy, filling and heathy.
I buy organic bell peppers and eggs. Why? Bell peppers can absorb harmful pesticides and they are a member of the “Dirty Dozen” of veggies. I prefer pasture raised eggs, I'll pay more to a company to treat their animals like living things and not egg machines. Plus I am a big fan of Non GMO items.
When reading egg cartons, an all vegetarian diet isn't a good thing for a chicken. They love bugs, if you've ever seen a flock of chickens chase grasshoppers it's one of the funniest things on the farm. Keep that in mind.
I pre chop my bell peppers and freeze them since I buy organic I save money when the larger ones are available since they are sold by unit not weight. I prefer my Lodge cast iron skillet.
Bell peppers are an excellent source of potassium and vitamin C, low on calories and high on flavor. Not as much fiber as you'd think since they contain lots of moisture.
Eggs are low on calories about 78 for a large egg. As far as cholesterol, they are high but we need cholesterol, if it's not in our diet our liver produces it, numerous studies on eggs can't really decide what to think. Eggs are a great source of protein, nutrients for your brain and antioxidants.
