15-Minute Turmeric Fried Eggs

2 servings Prep time: 5 min

Starting the day with a nourishing meal is critical for good metabolic health, and this easy 15-Minute Turmeric Fried Eggs recipe is perfect when you’re short on time. 

Eggs are one of my favorite breakfast options thanks to their high protein content, which is linked to balanced blood sugar and reduced cravings throughout the day. They’re also a great source of vitamin B12 to support the brain and nervous system, and vitamin B2 (also known as riboflavin) for metabolism and energy production. 

I used spinach in this recipe but you can substitute that with any dark leafy greens you like. And feel free to add an extra egg per serving for even more protein!
