This is a very nutrient rich, versatile dish. Potatoes are a great source of energy and fibre, and provide many essential nutrients including Vitamin C, potassium and manganese. Eggs are one of the most nutritious foods available with a perfect balance of amino acids (protein), and are a rich source of choline – essential to metabolise fats in our liver. Although eggs contain cholesterol, it is now understood that cholesterol in foods does not necessarily impact our blood cholesterol. Asparagus, a known diuretic, is a good source of various vitamins including folic acid, necessary for development of the nervous system, and particularly important pre- and during pregnancy.
