Performance Fact

Eggs are packed with nutrients including protein and 13 other vitamins and minerals including vitamins A, D, B12 and iodine. Adding colorful vegetables increases the variety of other nutrients that form a great breakfast option before practice or competition. The fat in the egg yolk increases the absorption of nutrients in the veggies!
