Incredible Edible Egg

Tuesday, August 17, 2010

Thought this was interesting and informative and wanted to share! Found it on the incredible edible egg website.

Protein/Weight Management
One egg provides 6 grams of protein, or 12% of the Recommended Daily Value. eggs provide the highest quality protein found in any food because they provide all of the essential amino acids our bodies need in a near-perfect pattern. While many people think the egg white has all the protein, the yolk actually provides nearly half of it.

The high-quality protein in eggs helps you to feel full longer and stay energized, which contributes to maintaining a healthy weight. In fact, research* shows that eggs eaten at the start of the day can reduce daily calorie intake, prevent snacking between meals and keep you satisfied on those busy days when mealtime is delayed.

Muscle Strength, Repair & Preservation
Research indicates that high-quality protein may help active adults build muscle strength and middle-aged and aging adults prevent muscle loss. Consuming eggs following exercise is a great way to get the most benefits from exercise by encouraging muscle tissue repair and growth.

Now go into Sparkrecipes and find some yummy egg recipes....what about deviled eggs! yummy.

    I believe the information you found on eggs. I pretty much gave them up because of cholesterol issues. Now there seems to be some dispute about whether or not eating eggs raises serum cholesterol. I hope "they" decide soon, because I'd love to go back to eating eggs.
