Start your day with this incredibly healthy, savory Turmeric Spinach and Eggs breakfast!
If you were to open our fridge at any given moment, you'll find eggs. Lots and lots of eggs. It's honestly the main protein I live off of. Between Avocado Baked Eggs, Crispy Hash n Eggs, or my pretty much daily Perfect Soft Scrambled Eggs, I eat them nearly everyday. And I'm always looking for new recipes that can add additional nutrition and flavor to them. These Turmeric Spinach Eggs are my newest hearty, healthy, breakfast!
Do you cook with turmeric often? I don't nearly enough, but I know I need to. Aside from being one of the main ingredients in delicious Indian curries (which definitely needs to be on my list to make ASAP), it also has a looonngg list of health benefits! Not only does it have anti-inflammatory antioxidants, but it's been linked to being helpful with arthritis and brain function. Aside from health benefits, it adds a nice earthy-sweet taste that's a nice twist on your classic egg breakfast.
Add some onions, a ton of spinach, and some cherry tomatoes and this is a pan full of protein, iron, calcium, magnesium, vitamin A... the list goes on and on. Simply put. This is freakin' healthy. And a freakin' delicious way to start the day!
