It’s packed with nutrients and provides tons of protein, fiber and healthy fats, making it a nutritious and filling meal that can be enjoyed any time of day. It’s an exciting way to dress up eggs, which are a diet staple for many clients of our weight loss clinics. They’re an excellent source of complete protein, which means that they contain all of the essential amino acids that we need to function. Since our bodies cannot make on these amino acids on their own, we need to get them from the foods we eat.

The protein, coupled with the dietary fiber and healthy fats in this recipe, will curb your hunger for hours on end. Spaghetti squash is rich in fiber, folate, potassium, calcium and vitamins A and C. Avocados are also a great source of fiber, folate and potassium, as well as heart healthy monounsaturated fatty acids. In addition, avocados contain significant amounts of vitamins B5, B6, C, E and K.
