When you think about a good balanced diet, people often overlook one common food – eggs. Whether you fry, poach, boil, or scramble them, they can take center stage as a tasty—not to mention, satisfying—meal, snack or brunch.
For years, people have feared eggs due to their saturated fat and cholesterol content, giving rise to its bad-for-your-heart reputation. But nothing could be further from the truth.
Eggs are actually super nutritious. They pack choline, lutein, and zeaxanthin as well as protein, essential amino acids, heart-healthy fats, vitamin D (which is difficult to find through food), B vitamins, vitamin A, potassium, and carotenoids (a type of pigment that acts as an antioxidant).
The protein that eggs offer make them a filling food. Not to mention that nutrients in the yolk—like omega-3 fatty acids, vitamins, and minerals—support the muscle-building process.
So go ahead and enjoy eggs when you get the chance! If you’re in need of some inspiration, check out these recipes from Martino.
