Dr Jockers Comments:
Omelets not only taste amazing but are loaded with nutrition that builds a healthy brain. You should always look for organic and pasture raised eggs. The more grass and natural wildlife that the chickens consume the more omega 3 fatty acids they will have in their eggs. The combination of healthy saturated fat, cholesterol, omega 3 fatty acids, choline, vitamin A & D and carotenoids (lutein & zeaxanthin) make organic pasture fed eggs one of the best brain building foods.
Basil is an incredible herb with tons of anti-oxidants and garlic is loaded with sulfur compounds that help detoxify the body and destroy unwanted pathogens. Be sure not to burn the eggs but cook them to your desire. I like to have them a little soft and runny which makes the proteins even more bioavailable. I recommend squeezing lemon and putting some apple cider vinegar on these eggs to help the body metabolize the protein more effectively and ease the stress on your digestive system.
