Never Neglect an Egg!


Eggs !! I love eggs,  Eggs Are Incredibly Nutritious

Eggs are among the most nutritious ,inexpensive,versatile, foods ,on the planet.

A whole egg contains all the nutrients required to turn a single cell into a baby chicken.

One of the major nutritional advantages of eggs is their protein content. Each large whole egg contains 6.3 grams of protein -- 3.6 grams from the white and 2.7 grams from the yolk. Like other animal products, eggs contain complete protein, which means that egg protein provides all the amino acids you need to survive. Your body uses these amino acids to maintain your tissues and support brain function. Each whole egg provides 20 percent of the recommended daily protein intake for women and 17 percent for men.

A single large boiled egg contains 

Vitamin A: 6% of the RDA.
Folate: 5% of the RDA.
Vitamin B5: 7% of the RDA.
Vitamin B12: 9% of the RDA.
Vitamin B2: 15% of the RDA.
Phosphorus: 9% of the RDA.
Selenium: 22% of the RDA.

Eggs also contains reasonable amounts of Vitamin D, Vitamin E, Vitamin K, Vitamin B6, Calcium and Zinc.


Cholesterol

Despite their nutritional profile, eggs do not represent a healthy diet option for everyone. Eggs contain a lot of cholesterol -- 185 milligrams for each large egg, or 62 percent of your maximum daily cholesterol intake, according to Colorado State University. Although not everyone responds poorly to dietary cholesterol, some people notice an increase in blood cholesterol levels when they eat foods that contain cholesterol. Since high blood cholesterol puts you at risk of heart disease, cholesterol "responders" should avoid eggs. However, because all of the cholesterol in an egg is found in the yolk, eating the egg white only allows you to enjoy eggs without eating cholesterol.

Prepare Eggs in a Healthy Way.

Practice healthy cooking methods when preparing your eggs. Ensure your eggs are cooked thoroughly, since raw or undercooked eggs can provide a breeding ground for harmful bacteria and foodborne illness. Limit your use of oil when cooking eggs, and pair eggs with healthy flavorings, like chopped red peppers, galic and other veggies. Limit your cholesterol by cooking egg whites. Alternatively, get the best of both worlds by using a mixture of whole eggs and egg whites to get the flavor of egg yolk while still limiting your cholesterol intake. If you have a history of high cholesterol, talk to your doctor about including eggs in your diet
