Eggs are nutritional powerhouses packed with heaps of good things: protein, vitamin B12, monounsaturated fat, phosphorous, selenium, iodine, folate and vitamin A.
All up, there are 11 different vitamins and minerals naturally found in eggs. They’re also low in salt and sugar, and – because they are high in protein – they help to keep us feeling fuller for longer. They’re a great option for those looking to manage their weight.
As for their moderate cholesterol content, the National Heart Foundation recommends that everyone who follows a healthy, balanced diet (one low in saturated fat) can eat up to six eggs per week without having a pronounced impact on blood cholesterol levels. This includes people with diabetes or heart disease. That is reason enough to get egg-static.
Team up your next serve of eggs with some heart-healthy avocado, smoked salmon and a generous serve of veggies for a delicious meal the whole family will enjoy.
