7 Reasons Eggs Are Golden

Eggs were getting a bad rap when it was believed that they contained too much cholesterol and were unhealthy. To the contrary, eggs are extremely nutritious and are really good for you. Here are seven reasons to include eggs in your diet.
1) Boost Metabolism:  Eggs are one of the best sources of choline. Choline facilitates the digestion of fat which is also important for memory and learning. Eating a high-protein diet has been shown to boost metabolism by up to 80 – 100 calories a day.
2) Easy to Prepare: Eggs are widely available and can be easily prepared within minutes.
3)  Nutritious:  Eggs contain about 7 grams of high-quality protein and are a great source of carotenoids, iron, minerals and vitamins.
4)  Low in Calories:  That’s right, it is true! A hard-boiled egg is about 78 calories.
5) Muscle Mass:  According to Applied, Physiology, Nutrition and Metabolism, diets in high-protein preserve muscle mass.
6)  Weight Loss:  The high-protein in eggs supports weight loss. Similar to other high protein diets, it moves slowly through the digestive tract, making you feel full longer and eating less.
7)  Versatile:  Eggs are delicious and so very versatile…you can have them for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Eggs are also very inexpensive and are easily accessible.  
There is no difference in nutrition, quality or value between a brown egg vs. a white egg. The Harvard School of Public Health reports that healthy individuals may eat one whole egg daily without worrying about increasing their risk of heart disease. Like everything else in life…do everything in moderation. Also, consult with your physician before changing your diet.
