Eggs are an extremely nutrient-rich food that isn’t meant just for breakfast. Eggs are a great source of protein, to help you last from one meal to the next, and also contain cholesterol, which is actually good for you in limited amounts.
Eggs contain the highest biological value for protein, along with milk – which means it’s the best makeup of protein. Eggs also contain iron, vitamins & carotenoids. Research has also found eggs to have disease-fighting properties and to be essential for eye and brain health. Don’t forget about them – an egg sandwich for a quick breakfast, quiche or egg salad for lunch, even a hard-boiled egg for a great protein packed snack! Remember to store your eggs in the refrigerator and cook them fully for safety.
