I am a HUGE fan of eggs. In fact, my favortie breakfast involves just eggs. Hard boiled eggs, scrambled eggs, omelet, or fried.
I would like to share some facts with you on the egg.
A whole egg is a high-fat, high-cholesterol, high-quality protein food packaged in a high-calcium shell that can be grounded and added to any recipe. The proteins in eggs, with sufficient amounts of all the essential amino acids, are 99 percent digestible, the standard by which all other proteins are judged.
The egg white is a high-protein, low-fat food with virtually no cholesterol. Its only important vitamin is riboflavin (vitamin B2), a visible vitamin that gives egg white a slightly greenish cast. Raw egg whites contain avidin, an antinutrient that binds biotin a B complex vitamin formerly known as vitamin H, into an insoluble compound. Cooking the egg inactivates avidin.
An egg yolk is a high-fat, high-cholesterol, high-protein food, a good source of vitamin A derived from carotenes eaten by the laying hen, plus vitamin D, B vitamins, and heme iron, the form of iron most easily absorbed by your body.
Eggs can be apart of a healthy diet every single day and I try to get my family to have eggs whenever possible. Most people just think about eggs for breakfast and for baking. You can use eggs for so much more!
