Full of protein and essential vitamins, eggs are the perfect low cost, high quality meal. With so many varieties of eggs, from white to brown, cage free to organic, and free range to omega-3, there are options for everyone.
According to a recent article on www.lifehack.org, there are at least seven good reasons to eat eggs in the morning.
1. They keep you full.
The protein in eggs helps keep you satisfied longer by sustaining your energy levels.
2. They’re inexpensive.
Most large Grade A eggs cost around $2 per dozen.
3. They contribute to brain development and memory.
Eggs contain the nutrient choline, which stimulates brain development and function, and has been linked to increasing memory retention.
4. They won’t make your cholesterol worse.
Even though eggs contain a significant amount of cholesterol, it has been disproven that they’ll cause an increase in yours.
5. They’re a good source of protein.
Whole eggs are a good source of complete protein – meaning they contain all of the essential amino acids that we need in our diets.
6. They help with weight loss.
Two keys to losing weight are eating more protein and eating less food. Because of the protein level in eggs and the fact that they keep you satisfied longer, you’re more likely to stay on track if you’re trying to lose weight.
7. They protect your eyesight.
Eggs contain two antioxidants (leutin and zeaxanthin) that have been linked to protecting eyes from damage related to UV exposure. They have also been associated with reducing the likelihood of developing cataracts.
