Eat Up. No More Eggscuses.

  1. New Dietary GuidelinesThe 2015 Dietary Guidelines for Americans remove the daily limit on dietary cholesterol and include eggs in all three recommended healthy eating patterns. Crack open an egg! It can help you build a healthful diet. 2. ProteinDid you know eggs have 6 grams of high quality protein? They do. Every single one of them, and kicking off the morning with protein helps sustain mental and physical energy throughout the day. So if  you’re the kind of person who wants to have productive days, just remember, eat more protein (like eggs), get more done. 3. What is Choline?Just because you may not have heard of Choline doesn’t make it any less important. Eggs are rich in the stuff, which promotes normal cell activity, liver function and the transportation of nutrients throughout the body. Think of it as a commuter train for vitamins and minerals. 4. No Carbs. No Sugar. Whoa, Amino Acids.Eggs contain zero carbs and no sugar. That means you can eat a well-rounded breakfast during the week. Plus, they’ve got all nine essential amino acids. No big deal. 5. Deep It Simple, SillyUnlike most cereals and yogurt, eggs don’t come with a complicated ingredient list because they don’t have one. They’re just “eggs.” And at 20 cents a serving, eggs are one of the least expensive sources of high quality protein there is. 6. Good. Clean. Yum.Let’s not forget that on top of tasting good, eggs are free from chemicals and preservatives with no added hormones. Not only that, they are fresh as most eggs leave the farm within 24-36 hours of being laid.
