Eggs are considered one of nature's most complete foods. They are filled with protein and contain neither carbohydrates nor sugar. Egg yolk once had a bad reputation as a cholesterol hellraiser, but recent research has shown that choline (the egg yolk nutrient) is a belly fat fighter that promotes cell activity, liver function, and nutrient transport throughout the body. In more than 40 years of research, we have found that cholesterol levels in eggs are lower than previously thought. When it comes to whipping up egg recipes, some people worry about the calories that come from the yolk and only use the protein. However, we recommend sticking to the whole egg to get the full nutritional benefit!

If you want to eat a healthy diet, eggs are perfect for breakfast, lunch, dinner or just as a snack. The key is to use the eggs in different ways, by adding spices or spices and combining them with many healthy vegetables and grains. Try these healthy egg recipes to make the average breakfast not so simple egg dishes that you can enjoy at any time of the day. And for more lean-slimming proteins, look at these best weight-loss proteins.
