Nourishment Notes


Eggs are an excellent source of lean protein needed for healthy cell growth. They also contain lutein that may promote eye health and choline, which may decrease chronic inflammation.


Broccoli is a cruciferous vegetable high in insoluble fiber to help prevent constipation. It also helps promote eye health, lung health, liver function, supports bone health, increases healthy cell production and keeps the immune system working its best.


Potatoes often get a bad rap, but this vegetable provides a variety of health benefits. Potatoes may help lower cholesterol levels, reduce the risk of heart disease and promote healthy eyes, skin and bones.


Onions are a type of prebiotic. Prebiotics feed healthy gut bacteria to help promote a healthier digestive tract. Onions may also help reduce cholesterol levels, which can decrease the risk for heart disease.
