Generally yes, but of course it depends on what you put in them. A good combo of eggs and vegetables will have a balance of protein, fat, vitamins and nutrients. The most basic element, the egg is quite nutritious. You can boost the amount of vitamins and nutrients by including a variety of vegetables, including spinach, tomatoes, zucchini, and bell peppers. A simple ham and cheese omelet will be high in protein, but also high in fat and cholesterol.
