Today is all about the humble Egg 🍳
Eggs are a nutrient powerhouse as if you think about it, one egg has to contain enough nutrients to grow a baby chicken from conception to birth 🥚
Egg whites contain mostly protein in the form of albumen whereas the yolk is made up of healthy fats which enables fat soluble vitamins (A, D, E, K) to be absorbed! I often here people say don't eat too many eggs because of the high cholesterol content, but to be honest, eggs will not be contributing to 'bad' cholesterol problems as this form is used as an essential part of the cell membrane surrounding every cell in the body!
Another unique compound called Choline can be found in eggs which enables the formation of a neurotransmitter molecule acetylcholine involved in all nerve impulse transmission and muscle contraction! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I have eggs almost everyday with my breakfast especially after exercising to replenish energy with healthy fats and for protein to assist with muscle repair. When buying eggs, always buy free range or organic pasture raised that are from your local area. This way you know the eggs are fresh and the hens are free to roam, living a healthy life and therefore results in better quality eggs. 🐔
