As a vegetarian, eggs are one of my go-to foods. While it's common knowledge that they supply protein, they're also a fabulous source of a nutrient you may not know much about.

Because close to 90 percent of American don't get enough of the nutrient, I'm bringing you info about what choline is and the foods you can get it from. The best part: I'm delivering nutritious and delicious choline-containing recipes.
