Understanding The Health Implications Of Eggs
Two decades ago, the health world was in a frenzy. Studies seemed to indicate that eggs—the very food on which so many Americans rely for a protein-filled, filling start to their day—were responsible for clogging arteries with cholesterol. As a result, many people began to steer clear of this protein source.
Fortunately, more studies have been conducted and actually reveal that eggs are a great source of protein, are low in fat, and ultimately do not significantly affect one’s likelihood of contracting heart disease. Just two eggs (for a low total of about 150 calories) will give you one of the three servings of protein you are recommended to eat each day.
One large egg will account for just 4 percent of the average daily intake of calories advised for adults, but will offer 10 percent of your recommended protein in addition to iron, B vitamins, and minerals. Eggs even contain folate, which pregnant women are advised to work into their diets.
Celebrate this great news by eating—not just dyeing—your Easter eggs. You will find a tasty snack that is high in protein and low in fat when you do. Banish the myth that eggs are bad for you and add this healthy food into your diet this spring season and beyond! Whether you prefer your eggs hard boiled, poached, or sunny side up, they offer a great option for easily increasing your protein intake.
