AN EGG-CELLENT ADV E N T U R E
and soft, fluffy buns – they’re all held together by eggs!
In terms of nutrients, the egg is no less lacking. They’re frequently lauded as one of the most nutritious foods in the world: they are laden with vitamins B12, B2, B5, vitamin A, selenium, calcium, and potassium among others. They’re fairly low-calorie, and yet provide plenty of quality protein. And while older research cautions against eating too many eggs for fear of cholesterol, fresh perspectives in our modern age have shown eggs to improve one’s cholesterol profile! Studies have shown that eggs raise the levels of “good” cholesterol HDL while also increasing the particle size of “bad” cholesterol LDL. This translates to a lower risk of heart disease.
What’s even better is that eggs have been shown to help with weight lost! Because eggs contain plenty of protein and fat, they contribute to the feeling of satiation much better, leading to higher meal satisfaction and a lower chance of snacking on other unhealthy options. Eating eggs for breakfast will give you that much-needed boost for the day; studies have shown that those who eat eggs for breakfast went on to consume far less calories throughout the day.
The verdict? Egg-ceptional.
