A Half-Dozen Reasons Why You Can’t Beat Eggs
Did you know the incredible edible egg has a nutrient content that most cereals and yogurts don’t? Of course you did, right? Well here’s more information you may not know about eggs that I think is pretty groovy. (I love that word).
- Zero Carbs and No Sugar
That’s right! Eggs contain zero carbs and no sugar. That means you can eat a well-rounded breakfast during the week without feeling round yourself.
- Amino Acids
Eggs have all 9 essential amino acids. Seems like a lot but remember – they ARE essential. (Leucine, Lysine, Methionine, Tryptophan, Phenylalanine, Histidine, Valine, Threonine and Isoleucine)
- No Gluten, No Problem
Let’s not forget that eggs are gluten-free. I like anything that’s free! Always have been, always will be. And that’s awesome because there isn’t exactly a glut of gluten-free breakfast options.
- More Food for Thought
Unlike most cereals and yogurt, eggs don’t come with a complicated, jam-packed ingredient list because they only contain one ingredient. It’s called “eggs.” And at 15cents a serving, eggs are the least expensive source of high-protein. That’s right, 15 cents.
- Got Choline?
Eggs are rich in choline, which is a weird word but it’s a “good weird” because choline promotes normal cell activity, liver function and the transportation of nutrients through-out the body. Think of it as a commuter train for vitamins and minerals.
If you start your weekday with cereal or toast instead of eggs, here’s a wake-up call: Did you know eggs have 6 grams of high-quality protein? And did you know a protein-packed breakfast helps sustain mental and physical energy throughout the day? That’s good news, especially if you’re a body-building chess champion.
So next time someone asks how you like your eggs, say you like ‘em a whole heck of a lot. Wake up to eggs!
