This recipe uses all of the flavours of a pizza without the refined carbohydrates of a traditional pizza as well as increasing nutritional benefits (see below).
Eggs are an excellent all round food offering protein and amino acids needed by the body for it to repair itself. They contain many nutrients including vitamin A to benefit eye health, vitamin B12 (fighting depression and tiredness), vitamins D and K (keeping bones strong), iron, zinc, omega 3’s and choline (a nutrient needed for the development of memory and learning in the brain). Studies show that egg consumption can help to prevent chronic age related conditions like heart disease, eye degeneration, memory loss and loss of muscle mass. There is no limit on how many eggs we should eat; multiple studies and research has shown that the saturated fats have no effect on blood cholesterol.
Peppers are an excellent source of vitamin C (building immunity) and anti-cancer antioxidants.
Tomatoes are full of vitamin C, antioxidants which are cancer preventative, potassium (essential for maintaining fluid balance and muscle/nerve function) and compounds which prevent blood clots.
Cheese is an excellent source of protein, vitamin D, calcium (needed for strong bones) as well as other various vitamins and minerals. Recent research has shown that they have little effect on the heart or risks of strokes like previously thought. In fact, the fatty acids in dairy foods may help lower bad LDL cholesterol and raise the good HDL cholesterol as well as prevent type 2 diabetes. However, it should not be eaten in vast amounts but certainly as part of a healthy diet.
