      Avoiding eggs? Here’s why you should not

      Eggs have had bad press for many years and this had dropped them down the list of healthy foods. However, latest research debunks these old theories and elevates the status of eggs to that of a superfood.

      The cheapest protein source

      Every egg contains six grams of high quality protein and it costs 20 cents for conventional ones and 30 to 40 cents for organic ones. Most of the protein is in the yolk and the taste is satisfying too.

      Stop mid-morning cravings

      If you eat eggs, you stay fuller longer compared to eating grain breakfasts such as pancakes and bagels. Studies have shown that those who had eggs at breakfast had lesser number of hunger hormones and ate less during lunch.

      Eggs are no more villains!

      For decades, eggs were taken off the plates by many due to fears of raising Cholesterol and increasing the risk for Heart Disease. However, latest research has taken it off the danger list. The Dietary Guidelines for Americans have currently specified that dietary cholesterol should be restricted to 300mg a day.

      Eggs protect your eyes

      Today, most of us use smartphones, laptops and tablets quite a lot. The blue light emitted from these is quite bad for health and eggs provide protection. Eggs are rich in lutein which is a yellow pigment found concentrated in the eye’s retina. Lutein keeps the eyes from macular degeneration which is the top cause of vision loss.

      Eggs keep you from losing muscle mass

      Once you touch the 30 mark, your muscle mass starts declining, in fact, it may be as much as 5% a decade. Losing muscle mass can be quite detrimental to your overall well-being as this can make you feel weak and lacking in terms of stamina. Exercise will help you retain some of the muscle and eggs are rich in high quality protein that helps to rebuild them.
