Eggs
Eggs

Did you agree with me about the best component in breakfast meal ?

See results
  • The answer is an egg. One large egg affords about 6 grams of protein.
  • Eggs also comprise two important amino acids – the tyrosine and the tryptophan - that have high antioxidant characteristics, according to University of Alberta researches.
  • Eggs are also filled with an incredible group of healthy minerals and nutrients, to name a few, vitamin D, choline, and carotenoids (more antioxidants!).
  • Egg yolk contains a large amount of cholesterol; about 186 milligrams per yolk, so eating up to 4-5 yolks per week may increase heart disease risks, according to some research labs.
  • So if you are on a cholesterol diet, you have to eat egg whites (which are cholesterol-free) more than egg yolks.
