The Incredible, Edible Egg

9 Mar

Hard-Boiled-Eggs-550x430[1]Yes, I know I borrowed their tagline but, seriously, eat an egg.  Better yet, eat a few of them.  Eggs are an inexpensive, delicious food source that play a role in weight management, muscle strength, healthy pregnancy, brain function, and eye health.

At only 70 calories per egg, you get 6 grams of high-quality protein; A, B, and D vitamins; choline (important for brain function and fat metabolism); and a host of other minerals and nutrients.  And eggs will keep you feeling full much longer than carb-heavy breakfasts like cereal and toast.

Eggs are a great choice for breakfast, (almost) any way you prepare them — scrambled, poached, fried, or even baked.  Research shows that consuming protein with breakfast is more beneficial than a breakfast devoid of protein.  And eggs aren’t just for breakfast.  Chopped, boiled eggs can be added to salads, and used to make egg salad (which is my lunch of choice on Lenten Fridays).

If you’re a morning workout person and want to get  some high-quality protein in your post-workout breakfast, you can’t do much better than eggs.

Get STRONGER, Get FASTER!
