Healthy breakfast recipes featuring eggs can be heart-healthy and not raise your cholesterol. It is one of the common cholesterol myths that eggs raise cholesterol. In fact, studies show that eating two eggs per day has no effect on your cholesterol level, and eating eggs regularly lowers your risk of developing cataracts and helps prevent macular degeneration. They are also an excellent source of protein, vitamins and minerals.

Salmon is one of the best sources of omega 3 fatty acid, which helps reduce your risk of heart disease and cancer. Omega 3s are a polyunsaturated fat that have been shown to decrease triglycerides, reduce inflammation and may help prevent dementia and memory loss. Look for wild caught salmon, as farmed salmon provides lower levels of omega 3 than the wild caught variety.

A frittata is an excellent dish to make for Sunday brunch, accompanied by a side salad. It is elegant, but easy to make, and sure to be a hit!
