Of course, we all know that eating breakfast is important but there are so many options to choose from. My personal favorite is to have eggs made in a variety of ways.
My favorite type of breakfast to eat is eggs and spinach. The reason I love eggs so much is they can be prepared in so many different ways. Eggs can also be specially made to tailor your health restrictions and dietary preference’s as well.
Eggs are especially great for the eyes. The latest studies have shown that an egg a day stops Muscular Degeneration which is the leading cause of blindness. Eggs can prevent this disease because of the carotenoid content in eggs. Carotenoid is most notably found in carrots.
More research found that people who consume eggs every day lower their risk of cataracts. A cataract is when the lens inside the eye gets clouded. This could lead to blindness and other eye problems.
Eggs are a great source of protein and all nine essential amino acids. They are a good source of choline as well. One large egg has about 30 percent of your recommended daily amount. Choline is an essential nutrient that helps regulate the brain, nervous system, and cardiovascular system. Choline is found mostly in the yolk, so feel free to skip out on the egg-white omelets now and again. Eggs also contain the right kind of fat. One awesome thing about eggs is one egg has only 5 grams of fat and only one.5 grams of saturated fat.
All eggs contain the same basic healthy nutrients. Large eggs have 72 calories in them and if you eat them without the yolk that number reduces greatly. Eggs are also one of the only foods that contain naturally occurring vitamin D. Eggs are also a great source of sulfur and B12 which promote healthy hair growth.
There are many things to look for when buying eggs to ensure that the eggs you’re buying are fresh and uncontaminated. If the label on the carton says “Organic eggs” it means that these were laid by chickens that aren’t fed nasty slaughterhouse byproducts, antibiotics, or other additives.
When you go egg shopping you should look for the word pasteurized, This means the eggs were placed in warm water to kill the bacteria. This label is a great label to look for. Another label that is great to look for is that there is “Omega-3” in the eggs.
If you’re not a fish eater, look for this label. These heart-healthy fatty acids are essential in every diet.
Many active people eat eggs as part of their nutritional and healthy lifestyle.
