Or, are you one of the ones that feel like eggs are your guilty pleasure, due to all the bad press they seem to get?
Well feel guilty no more. I was doing some research and I found out that eggs are actually considered a superfood! Whaaaaaat?!!!! I know, that’s exactly what I said.
So, of course I had to do more research and I ended up coming across an article that talked about a women name Emma Morano, who credited her 115 years to raw eggs and staying single (We’ll just concentrate on the eggs part for now, lol.)
She said she’s been slurping down three eggs a day since she was a teenager, and was told by a doctor it was a great way to ward off anemia. She said after many years of consuming raw eggs, she’s still upbeat and living in a two-room apartment in Verbania, Italy.
In an article written by Kris Gunnars, she listed the many nutrients found in a single large boiled egg; Vitamin A, Folate, Vitamin B5, Vitamin B12, Vitamin B2, Phosphorus, and Selenium. They also contain adequate amounts of Vitamin D, Vitamin E, Vitamin K, Vitamin B6, Calcium, and Zinc.
Still not convinced? Well, lets delve a little deeper…
Here are some additional benefits:
Eggs Energizes You
Eggs have a high Satiety index. This is where the digestive system communicates with the brain letting it know you’re either hungry or full. in other words, it keeps you fuller longer. Because eggs lack Vitamin C, adding some juice along with a piece of whole wheat bread makes this the perfect combo for a power packed punch performance in a hectic environment.
Many people with moderate iron deficiency, may tend to feel tired, and experience headaches and irritability. The yolk in an egg carries iron in the form of heme iron, which is the most absorbable and usable form of iron and more absorbable than the form of iron found in most supplements.
Due to the 210mg per egg yolk, eggs have been publicly ridiculed as being bad for our cholesterol. Several studies have shown that there is no correlation between egg intake and coronary heart disease.
Protein is one of the most vital components of our diet. Our systems use protein to build new and repair old tissue. Egg protein is of the greatest quality with a rating of 100 in comparison to milk, rated at 93, fish and beef rated at 75. Eggs is an excellent source of protein and one of the least expensive.Eggs also promote healthy hair and nails, tightens skin, removes whiteheads, protects bones, protects eyesight, promotes weight loss, and also promotes brain health.
