Eggs: Not Your Ordinary Breakfast Food
If there is one specific food that you could think of eating every day, what would it be? I’d say it’s egg. Well actually it dominates the menus of all sorts of breakfast spots (to think that not only in breakfasts, but also in any time of the day). We have eaten eggs for years. There are many types of egg, but the most common choice is that of the chicken. Honestly in my opinion, eggs are one of the few foods that should be classified as “Superfoods”. Because they are loaded with nutrients and more!
Did You Know?
- A study published in Paediatrics magazine has suggested that giving young children just one egg a day for six months, alongside a diet with reduced sugar-sweetened foods, may help them achieve a healthy height and prevent stunting.
- An egg yolk is actually one single cell. It’s true! Every time you eat an egg yolk, you’re munching on one big cell.
Minerals like iron, zinc, and phosphorus are existing in eggs in great amounts and are essential for your healthy body. Zinc maintains your immune system and turns food into energy. Also, the vitamin A, vitamin B-12, and selenium in eggs are key to keeping the immune system healthy.
Eggs are a great source of protein, and protein is what helps the body create all kinds of tissues and maintain strength. It’s also a key part of building muscle mass and maintaining bone health. Eating enough protein can help with weight loss, increase muscle mass, lower blood pressure and optimize bone health, to name a few
If you’ve ever eaten an egg, you know that they’re very filling, and you don’t have to eat a lot of them to feel satisfied. A big thanks to their filling nature – eating an egg means you’ll feel full with less food, and won’t have to fill up with empty calories to feel satisfied.
