How healthy are baked eggs?
In general, eggs are a great source of protein, vitamins, and minerals. I’m pretty sure that most of us already know how healthy spring vegetables like beets, kale, spinach, and radishes are. Spring vegetables are the most nutrient-dense. Really, they have more nutrients due to being in season and even better if you buy organic. More on that below!
Okay, so we know that this egg bake recipe is uber good for you, a superfood meal for sure. That’s a good thing. To increase the healthiness even more, I’m using organic vegetables and Eggland’s Best organic eggs.
I bet I know what you’re going to ask next… Should I buy organic produce? My answer is a resounding YES, definitely choose organic when you can!
Why? A study by Newcastle University in the United Kingdom found organic produce has 40 percent higher levels of some nutrients (including vitamin C, zinc, and iron).
Okay, but what about the eggs?
Are organic eggs better than regular eggs?
Let’s look at a few facts about Eggland’s Best organic eggs. I think you’ll see that they speak for themselves:
- 100% USDA organic certified.
- The happy hens are fed certified organic, all-vegetarian hen feed.

HOW to make a sheet pan meal with vegetables and eggs!
