Superfood #4: Eggs
Eggs have long been associated with high cholesterol and fats. But top functional medical practitioners disagree and point to the fact that eggs are one of the most healthy food on the planet. Eating just two eggs per day can have a massive positive effect on your body.
Eggs are highly recommended if you’re trying to lose weight. Rich in protein (roughly 78 calories), eggs are great to start off your day! They’re easy to prepare and keep you full until lunchtime. Eggs are also a good source of vitamins such as vitamin B (which is good for your hair, skin, and nails) and vitamin D (which is essential for calcium absorption and keeping your bones strong).
If you’ve got a weak immune system, then eggs are your friends! They contain a good amount of selenium, vitamin A, and iron which are extremely useful to fight diseases and colds. Consuming eggs on a daily basis will also help if you’re looking to build your muscles as they’re a good alternative to red meats.
Last but not least, eggs help to improve your memory. They contain choline which aids in fat metabolism as well as brain function. So next time you’re looking for something to have for breakfast, go for eggs! They can be fried, poached, baked, scrambled, and more.
