A Super Breakfast Bowl

Be it fried, baked, boiled or scrambled, I LOVE eggs. Last year, we started raising hens on your roof top garden. It has been a treat ever since. Picking up fresh free range eggs from your garden is such a big blessing.  Recently, the hens stopped laying eggs and now we are buying free range eggs from a Organic City’s Eco Store.  These are lovely desi brown-skinned eggs with an orange yolk. 

Eggs are super rich in vitamin A which is good for your brain, eyes & skin; B 12 which is essential for your immune system, nerves and muscles and contains good amount of Vitamin D, folate & Iron. Pair it with gluten-free, protein rich organic Quinoa, kale and spinach and there you have a super breakfast bowl!
