How can you not love eggs?! They are so easy to make, really versatile and very nutritious.

So what's with the bad reputation? Are you still hearing that you should avoid the yolk or eggs all together because they are high in fat and can raise your cholesterol? Here are some great reasons to forget the bad advice and get cracking:

  • One egg contains 6 grams of high-quality protein and all 9 essential amino acids.
  • Eggs are a source of healthy fat. One egg contains just 5 grams of fat and only 1.5 grams of that is saturated fat.
  • Eggs are one of the only foods that contain naturally occurring vitamin D.
  • 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.
  • New research shows that consumption of eggs does not have a negative impact on cholesterol. In fact, recent studies show that regular consumption of two eggs per day does not affect a person's lipid profile and may actually improve it.
  • They are a good source of choline, which is an important nutrient that helps regulate the brain, nervous system, and cardiovascular system.
  • Eggs are great for the eyes. According to one study, an egg a day may prevent macular degeneration due to the carotenoid content, specifically lutein and zeaxanthin, which are more readily absorbed by our bodies from eggs than from other sources. Also, the lutein and zeaxanthin in eggs may lower their risk of developing cataracts.
  • Eggs promote healthy hair and nails because of their high sulphur content and many other vitamins and minerals.
Remember that organic free-range eggs are always better. Conventional eggs contain hormones and antibiotics.

Yours in health & fitness,
