Cream Cheese Shakshouka Nutrition Info:

Studies have now shown that the Mediterranean diet can cause weight loss and help prevent heart attacks, strokes, type 2 diabetes and premature death. This healthy shakshouka egg bake breakfast ties in perfectly with the Mediterranean eating habits.

So What Is The Mediterranean Diet?

Here’s The Basics

  • Eat: Vegetables, fruits, nuts, seeds, legumes, potatoes, whole grains, breads, herbs, spices, fish, seafood and olive oil.
  • Eat in moderation: Poultry, eggs, cheese, yogurt, red meat.
  • Limit: Sugar-sweetened beverages, added sugars, processed meat, refined grains, refined oils and other highly processed foods.

Another amazing thing about the Mediterranean diet is the fact that it includes flavors from natural ingredients. Lots of garlic, onion, citrus, fresh herbs, and spices!

Why Spices?

Many herbs and spices not only provide flavor but also are packed full of antioxidants. A little bit goes a long way!

I love adding turmeric to my eggs! It’s visually beautifully and adds a little extra peppery taste.
