What makes eggs royale healthy?

I see you looking and wondering how this can possibly be healthy with it being full of melted butter and of course usually enjoyed on a muffin! Remember health isn’t always about the number of calories in a recipe.

This recipe was provided to me by Dr Andy Hepworth from an expert in eye health. It is great for your eyes and here is why.

Did you know salmon is a great food for your eyes? Particularly wild-caught salmon and wild-caught tuna, both are extremely rich in omega-3 fatty acids which can contribute to visual development and good health of the retina.

Omega-3 is also great for preventing dry eyes so another reason to try this eggs royale.

How to make this recipe even healthier

If you want to increase your eye health even more, other foods you could add to this eggs royale recipe or your diet in general which are also good for your eyes are kale, spinach, butternut squash, sweet potato, blueberries and apricots.
