Runny Eggs & Kale

Recently this has been my favorite breakfast because it is so quick to make and it is just the right amount of food before working out.  I just put in about two handfuls of kale torn up, 1/2 tsp coconut oil, red pepper flakes, 1 glove crushed garlic, and cook for about 5-10 min.  I cook the egg so the yoke is still runny so I don't damage all the good nutrients.
I also like to sprinkle sea vegetable sprinkle on the egg, so it is a little salty.  

"Data taken from the USDA Nutrient Database for Standard Reference, Release 15. AA and DHA data from NutritionData.Com. Since the article was written, the USDA has published revisions. 
The yolk contains 100% of the carotenoids, essential fatty acids, vitamins A, E, D, and K (6 items). The white does not contain 100% of any nutrient.
The yolk contains more than 90% of the calcium, iron, phosphorus, zinc, thiamin, B6, folate, and B12, and 89% of the panthothenic acid (9 items). The white does not contain more than 90% of any nutrient, but contains over 80% of the magnesium, sodium, and niacin (3 items).
The yolk contains between 50% and 80% of the copper, manganese, and selenium, while the white contains between 50% and 80% of the potassium, riboflavin, and protein."


  1. Eggs are really good in a protein diet. It actually contains protein and other nutrients that helps build up muscles.

  2. I tried this and it is very delicious and I don't normally like runny eggs. :)
