This is a delicious recipe from my new book “Perfect Digestive Health”. It’s a staple in my home and it makes a quick and healthy protein-rich meal any time of the day.
My Super Charged Eggs sustain lean muscle and support digestion and a healthy immune system. My eggs also boost recovery after exercise because they are rich in protein and potassium. My Super Greens Pesto adds life and freshness to this delicious breakfast. It’s rich in chlorophyll that helps to nourish the digestive system, support detoxification and helps to alkalinise the body.
