Eggs contain a plethora of other important nutrients including a number of minerals, vitamins, carotenoids and choline. The majority of these are found in the yolk, with the exception of vitamin B2 (riboflavin) and B3 (niacin). They contain heart- and brain-healthy fats, support muscle growth, and fat loss. What’s not to like?
The next time you’re looking for a truly tasty treat that is nutritionally dense (the average egg clocks in at about 80 calories) and metabolically friendly (a glycemic index rating of low) revisit the humble, but still incredible egg. And don’t leave with egg on your face, eat the whole thing, yolk and all.
