A Sunrise Recipe: Scrambled Eggs Provençal

Sunrise Senior Living  |  February 9, 2015

The dining services coordinator at The Quadrangle in Haverford, PA, shares the following recipe for Scrambled Eggs Provençal, a family holiday favorite. It all started when his grandmother met his grandfather in France during WWII – she served him this very dish as he passed through!

Long misunderstood, eggs are actually an incredible source of nutrition. One egg has only 75 calories, but packs in 7 grams of protein and a wide range of essential vitamins and minerals. Eggs are also loaded with antioxidants. Lutein, for example, is a carotenoid that may reduce the risk of age-related macular degeneration.
