CHICKEN SCHNITZEL CAESAR SALAD
COOKBOOK: Super Food Ideas - Nov 2009
Sometime a salad just doesn’t fill you up, right? Look again! This one will most certainly satisfy. With the introduction of a schnitzel combined with salad all on the one plate, you just can’t go wrong. You could serve schnitzel & salad individually, but that’s not as satisfactory as having it combined with egg, bacon and salad all on the one plate.
Let’s talk about eggs! They not only contain a large amount of protein, but they are also a good source of vitamin D (which helps the immune system) and choline (which helps metabolism and liver function as well as feta brain development)
Can you eat eggs every day? They say eating an egg a day can keep your HDL (High Density Lipoprotein) levels high. Those with a lower HDL have a higher chance of developing heart disease issues. According to studies, eating two eggs a day for 6 weeks increases HDL levels by 10%, and this is a good thing. Hope you enjoy it as much as we did
