Egg-cellent Facts About Eggs
New evidence shows how eggs keep you awake by jumpstarting your brain at the cellular level. While doing your thing at night or getting ready for work in the morning it takes only minutes to boil a couple of eggs to eat as a snack at some point during your day.
When it comes to versatility, few foods can match the power of the incredible, edible egg. Eggs are perfect for breakfast, lunch, or dinner (in moderation and usually when paired with other foods). Eggs are budget-friendly, protein-packed, and low in calories.
Boil, poach, omelette, or scramble 2+ eggs and have on whole meal toast with a light avocado spread and a sprinkle of sea salt or make a quiche with all your favourite vegetables.
Most of egg's bad reputation is due to the small amount of cholesterol in the yolk. The good outweighs any perceived bad (if used excessively). Because egg whites contain no cholesterol, unlimited egg white consumption is perfectly heart-healthy.
Prized for their low-calorie protein punch, eggs are an excellent snack or meal for anyone who wants to lose or manage their weight. With 6 grams of high quality protein and only 80 calories per large egg, one hard-boiled egg can be a satisfying snack. Add a handful of fresh spinach to an egg scramble, and you have a healthy breakfast that's packed with nutrients. Egg whites have 3 grams of protein and only 15 calories per egg, no cholesterol, and no saturated fat, which makes them an extremely diet-friendly food.
Eggs are nutrient-rich. They contain vitamin B2 and are a rich source of selenium, vitamin D, vitamin A, B6, B12, E, K, lecithin and minerals such as zinc, phosphorus, iron and copper which are keys to brain health and general wellbeing.
The colour and the size of the egg are related to the colour and the size of the chicken that produced the egg – nothing more.
Organically fed and range free chicken eggs are the best choice.
