Updated on July 4, 2011

What uses does an egg have?

Eggs are wonderful natural products. Females of various species, including chicken, duck, roe, caviar and quail lay eggs. However the most common type for human consumption would be a chicken's egg.

These types of egg contain large amounts of protein and choline. This makes them a popular choice for recipes as they provide good nutrients for a balanced diet; also they can be implemented into countless meals and tend to make you feel quite full.

Eggs - as a diet

Eggs are an excellent choice when eaten regularly in a diet. The nutrients they contain help to protect against diseases like strokes, heart attacks, and more. They have also been proven to reduce cholesterol significantly. Perfect for anyone who is looking for a satisfying ingredient to add to their meals that will keep health risks at bay.

So in what ways can eggs be eaten? Well the list is countless! They can be eaten along with meats, carbohydrate based foods, cakes or even on their own. The following are just a few ways in which eggs have been consistently used on a regular basis.

  • Poached egg
  • Fried egg
  • Omelette
  • Scrambled egg
  • Eggy bread
  • Pancakes
  • Scones
  • Many types of cakes
  • Muffins
  • Creamed eggs
  • Hard boiled eggs
  • Eggs Benedict
  • Quiche

These are just a few and there are thousands of ways in which eggs can be introduced into a diet. Salads are perfect for slices of cold hard-boiled eggs. Many sweet recipes will include eggs in them and savoury dishes will usually be able to be accompanied by eggs. So do not be afraid to welcome eggs into your diet.

Other uses for eggs

Egg mask

Eggs do not have to just be consumed to feel their magic powers. There are many ways that eggs can be beneficial towards the condition of your skin and well-being. Using eggs as a facemask is perfect for removing wrinkles from around the eyes and making your skin smooth, soft and tight.

To make it, simply break an egg and separate the white from the yolk. Put the white in a little basin and beat it stiffly, as you would for a meringue, adding half a teaspoon of lemon juice or five drops of eau-de-Cologne as you beat.

Sponge the skin with hot water and dry by dabbing with a soft towel. Now, with the tip of your finger, smear the egg mixture over the lines, allowing it to dry on. Leave this on for the night and wash off the next morning with soft lukewarm water. You will wake in the morning with beautiful, rejuvenated skin by using a natural remedy.

The white of an egg should be lightly spread over 'crows feet' and lines around the eyes. This will result in them fading for a few hours and is perfect or special occasions. However, the effect is not permanent. But it sure beats paying pounds for chemical peels and unsafe botox procedures!

This is just one example of many facemasks that can be used for different reasons on the skin. Eggs have proteins, minerals and vitamins, which nourish the skin amazingly. Using the yolk of an egg and spreading on the face also can tighten pores. Experiment with your eggs and look ten years younger!

Get luscious locks

Egg shampoo

If you have hair colour that is fading, looking dull or turning prematurely grey, then your miracle might just have arrived. An egg shampoo is very beneficial for the hair that has these problems. The sulphur in the egg yolk helps to arrest the greyness and brings out the brighter tints in reddish-brown hair.

To make the shampoo, beat up one or more eggs, (as required for your hair length) with one tablespoonful for each egg off lukewarm water and a teaspoonful of fine shredded soap. Beat to a foamy mass, adding, while beating, a tablespoon of bay rum.

Wet the scalp and hair with lukewarm water, and shampoo the egg mixture well into the roots and through the hair. Rinse off in three separate waters adding to the last of the rinsing water a tablespoonful of white wine vinegar. You will be left with silky smooth hair that has vibrancy and a sharp sheen to it.

These tips can help you to dazzle when used regularly and are sure to make you a lover of eggs if you are not already. Be healthy, beautiful and happy. This ingredient has powers that can save you money and give better results than most high priced products would. It is certainly worth giving it a try!

      I remember a few years back when they said that eggs were so bad for you. I am so glad they changed their minds. Eggs are delicious and so good for you! Greta hub - now having egg on your face has taken on a whole new meaning!
