Eat Eggs!

Eggs are among the most nutritious foods.

They are cheap, easy to prepare and great for breakfast.

Both the white and yolk of an egg are rich in nutrients - proteins, vitamins and minerals with the yolk also containing cholesterol, fat-soluble vitamins and essential fatty acids.

It’s true that eggs are high in cholesterol, but eating eggs does not have adverse effects on cholesterol in the blood for the majority of people.

Eating eggs leads to elevated levels of HDL (the “good”) cholesterol, which is linked to a reduced risk of many diseases.

Eggs are also high in good quality protein with all the essential amino acids in the right ratios, so great for building muscle and repairing tissues damaged during exercise.

Eggs are also highly satiating, which means they fill you up, so you overall eat fewer calories.

Sounds pretty good to me!
