1. Eggs

Not only are they convenient and easy to cook, eggs are a nutritional powerhouse. They supply high-quality protein, some fat and a host of essential minerals, including selenium (an antioxidant), iron, and zinc for the immune system.

If you can spare a bit more change and upgrade to free-range eggs, you’ll be paying for the added nutrition. By including omega-rich foods, such as flaxseed, in their hens’ diets farmers can get eggs with up to three times more omega-3 fatty acids. Look for those with omega from DHA, rather than ALA, as it’s much more potent for heart and brain health.
