The six grams of high-quality protein in eggs is hard to beat. It helps keep you fuller longer, so the person you’re sitting next to isn’t hearing your stomach growling an hour or two after breakfast.
And what’s better than cutting into a delicious poached or fried egg to see a creamy golden yolk? So tasty! Did you know yolks are also a nutrient goldmine? The yolk is the source for 100 percent of the Iron, Choline (an essential nutrient for brain development), Vitamin D, Vitamin A, Vitamin B6, Vitamin E, Vitamin B12, and Zinc found in the egg. Other incredible nutrients in the yolk are folate, selenium, and phosphorus. Did we mention eggs contain no carbs or sugar unlike yogurt or cereal?
