Green Salad with Poached Eggs and Cheese

 A plate of green salad with poached egg

Don't you like how eggs can be eaten at any time of the day? I sure do. There is not always time in the morning to cook eggs, and sometime I am not even in the mood for an egg in the morning. So lunch is usually when I like to cook eggs. This green salad with poached eggs makes a perfect lunch with protein and nutrition. If you are tired of scrambled or boiled eggs, then poached eggs are a great option that provide you with a source of protein and improve brain function. Combine it with romaine, and you'll get a low calorie salad and tomato that promotes heart health.
