Finally, an appetizer that you can feel good about eating! Eggs pack in protein to keep you feeling satisfied, as well as B vitamins and vitamin D  We use Eggland’s Best , because they are the only egg with 4 X the vitamin D of other eggs, double the Omega 3s, 3 X the vitamin B12, as well as 25% less saturated fat that other eggs.

Avocados contain monounsaturated fat which helps to enhance the absorption of fat soluble vitamins like vitamin D, E and A (all found in eggs).  Plus, they’ve got some skin-beautifying nutrients other than the monounsaturated fat, which moisturizes the skin from the inside out, they’ve got phytonutrients that help mop up damaging free radicals and protect it from pollutants and stressors that cause it to show signs of aging.

The cherry (well, sun-dried tomato!) on top of this decadent appetizer supplies Vitamin C, which supports the immune system and neutralizes free radicals throughout the body to fight disease and slow some of the decline that comes with aging. It also delivers beta carotene for vision and a healthy immune system. Lastly, lycopene, lutein and zeaxanthin are important for eye health and protecting against macular degeneration. Yep, no doubt about it—you’ll be sayin’—“ I love this recipe from my head to-ma-toes!” 🙂

Only 7 minutes in the oven and this appetizer just needs to be topped off with its two toppings!
