Eat Up Your Eggs

Eggs have been part of one’s morning breakfast routine and have been around for ages.

They are not only easy to prepare but also convenient.

You can cook up eggs in a whole lot of ways. From veggie omelet muffins to scrambled eggs with fried rice and even plain ol’ boiling.

Eggs are a nutritious food that provides protein, fat, vitamins, and minerals.

Eggs are a good source of high-quality protein, which can help with muscle growth, weight loss, and satiety.

They also contain choline, a nutrient that is important for brain and liver health.

Eggs are rich in vitamin A, which supports eye health and immune function.

They also provide vitamin D, which helps with calcium absorption and bone health.

However, eggs are also high in cholesterol, which may raise the risk of heart disease in some people.

Therefore, it is advisable to limit the intake of eggs to no more than one per day and to choose low-fat cooking methods such as boiling or poaching.
