Ingredient Highlights

Beans are an excellent source of plant-based protein and carbohydrates. They are also packed with minerals including calcium, iron, and phosphorous [i]. Like other legumes, beans are rich in soluble fiber that helps regulate LDL (“bad” cholesterol), regulate sugar absorption, and support the health of the gut microbiome [ii]

Tomatoes are rich in lycopene, a potent antioxidant that helps the body fight against oxidative stress and inflammation. Tomatoes are also rich in electrolytes, which help with hydration [iii].   

Eggs contain all the nine essential amino acids (the building blocks of protein) and are full of vitamins and minerals. The yolk contains all the vitamins (except for vitamin C) and important minerals such as zinc, iron, and magnesium [iv].   

Oregano is a potent anti-inflammatory plant that supports the immune system [v].
