Scrambled Eggs With Tomatoes

My whole family are egg lover. I have tried cooking different types of omelette. This time I tried to make scrambled eggs with tomatoes. I just read a junk email. It stated that tomatoes can reduce the risk of getting breast cancer. I think I should try to add tomatoes in my daily intakes, be it in juice or cooking.

Ingredients:
4 large eggs
1/4 cup milk
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon seasoned pepper
2 tablespoons butter
5 small ripe tomato, chopped Preparation: In a mixing bowl, beat eggs, milk, salt, and pepper together until well blended. Put the chopped tomatoes into the egg mixture and mix everything together. Melt butter in skillet over medium-low heat until hot;pour in egg mixture.
Reduce heat. As mixture begins to set on bottom and sides of skillet, lift and fold over with spatula. Cook until eggs are almost set.
Heat scrambled eggs through; serve immediately.
I have talked about the benefits of tomatoes here.
Below is the 10 health benefits of eggs.
1. Eggs are great for the eyes. According to one study, an egg a day may prevent muscular degeneration due to the carotene content, specifically lutein and zeaxanthin. Both nutrients are more readily available to our bodies from eggs than from other sources.
2. In another study, researchers found that people who eat eggs every day lower their risk of developing cataracts, also because of the lutein and zeaxanthin in eggs.
3. One egg contains 6 grams of high-quality protein and all 9 essential amino acids.
4. According to a study by the Harvard School of Public Health, there is no significant link between egg consumption and heart disease. In fact, according to one study, regular consumption of eggs may help prevent blood clots, stroke, and heart attacks.
5. They are a good source of choline. One egg yolk has about 300 micrograms of choline. Choline is an important nutrient that helps regulate the brain, nervous system, and cardiovascular system.
6. They contain the right kind of fat. One egg contains just 5 grams of fat and only 1.5 grams of that is saturated fat.
7. New research shows that, contrary to previous belief, moderate consumption of eggs does not have a negative impact on cholesterol. In fact, recent studies have shown that regular consumption of two eggs per day does not affect a person's lipid profile and may, in fact, improve it. Research suggests that it is saturated fat that raises cholesterol rather than dietary cholesterol.
8. Eggs are one of the only foods that contain naturally occurring vitamin D.
9. Eggs may prevent breast cancer. In one study, women who consumed at least 6 eggs per week lowered their risk of breast cancer by 44%.
10. Eggs promote healthy hair and nails because of their high sulphur content and wide array of vitamins and minerals. Many people find their hair growing faster after adding eggs to their diet, especially if they were previously deficient in foods containing sulphur or B12.
