Free-range chickens produce much higher quality eggs containing almost double the omega-3 nutrient as caged chickens. Another nutrient found within eggs is choline. This is essential for the health of our brains because it helps to maintain cell membrane structure and plays a vital role in how our brain cells communicate with one another. <h4><p style="color: rgba(20, 117, 135, 1)">Fresh is Always Best</p></h4> Fresh Parsley contains a range of antioxidants including lycopene, beta carotene, and alpha carotene. Antioxidants help to slow the aging process by fighting free radical damage, or oxidative stress, along with inflammation within the body. This is important because free radical formation is known to contribute to almost every age-related disease, including cancer, heart disease, neurodegenerative diseases, and eye disorders. <h4><p style="color: rgba(20, 117, 135, 1)">Simple Egg Salad</p></h4> <h5>Prep Time: 15 mins: | Cook Time: 15 mins | Serves: 2</h5> <h5><p style="color: rgba(20, 117, 135, 1)">Ingredients:</p></h5> * 1 Avocado * 6 Eggs * ⅓ Cup Mayonnaise * 1 teaspoon Dijon Mustard * Splash of lemon juice (to prevent avocado browning) * ⅛ teaspoon Dill * ½ tablespoon fresh chopped parsley * Salt and pepper, to taste <h5><p style="color: rgba(20, 117, 135, 1)">Instructions:</p></h5> 1.
