Eggs Are Amazing!!!!!!!!

 

 

DID YOU KNOW???

 

 

 

 

Eggs keep you full longer than a whole grain breakfast such as cereal or toast?

  • The protein & fat in eggs helps sustain your energy levels

Eggs assist in weight loss

  • A recent study shows that eating eggs for breakfast can help overweight dieters lose more weight, lower their body mass index and shrink their waist more than people who eat a bagel breakfast of equal calories. People who ate the eggs for breakfast felt more satisfied and ate fewer calories at the following meal

Eggs are a great source of protein

  • Whole eggs are one of the most complete source of protein, they contain all the essential amino acids that we need to encourage muscle tissue repair and growth

Eggs aren’t going to make your cholesterol worse

  • While its true that eggs contain cholesterol, the old formula of the cholesterol you eat impacting on your blood cholesterol levels, has been disproven. So there’s no need to worry about eating eggs increasing your risk for heart disease.

Eggs help brain development and memory

  • Choline, an essential nutrient found in eggs, stimulates brain development and function. It has also been linked with increasing memory retention and recall as well as improving alertness.

Eggs protect your eyesight

  • Two antioxidants, lutein and zeaxanthin, are present in eggs and have been linked to protecting eyes from damage related to UV exposure. They have also been associated with reducing the likelihood of developing cataracts in old age.

YOLK is GOOD

  • Don’t skip the yolk! One egg provides six grams of all-natural, high quality protein. While many think that the egg white has all of the protein, the yolk actually provides nearly half of that.
