One week, researchers say eggs are a healthy food, and not healthy the next. So, should we be serving eggs to our family? Are they good for us or not?
The simple answer is yes. Eggs are packed with a variety of nutrients that are good for your brain, eyes, hair and skin. They are a rich source of choline, a nutrient important to brain health. Eggs also contain lutein and zeaxanthin, which are important antioxidants. These antioxidants work to keep your eyes in good shape. But don't just opt for egg whites; choline, lutein and zeaxanthin are housed in the yolk!
The egg's biggest claim to fame is protein. It's considered a high-quality protein because it contains all the building blocks for body and muscle growth. That's good news for your muscles, skin and hair.
Eggs in moderation fit into any balanced diet. Start Monday morning off with eggs for breakfast, Tuesday top a lunch salad with chopped eggs. For dinner Wednesday get creative and serve up quiche! The options are endless. You are sure to find something that will be egg-ceptional and appeal to the entire family.
