9 Health Benefits of Eating Eggs for Breakfast

 

 

What came first the chicken or the egg? We may never know, but we do know there are many reasons to make eggs an essential part of your diet.

Eggs have been a dietary staple since time immemorial and there’s good reason for their continued presence in our menus and meals. Not only do they offer culinary variety — hard-boiled eggs, omelets, deviled eggs and then some — they are also a source of protein, calcium and several vitamins and nutrients. Here are some of the benefits of incorporating eggs into your diet.

1. It’s a nutritious treat.

Though relatively small in size, eggs pack a lot of nutrition and can be an important staple in a well-balanced diet.

One large boiled egg has about 77 calories and contains:

  • Vitamins A, B5, B12, D, E, K, B6
  • Folate
  • Phosphorus
  • Selenium
  • Calcium
  • Zinc
  • Six grams of protein
  • Five grams of healthy fats

“Eggs are a good source of protein (both whites/yolk). They also contain heart-healthy unsaturated fats and are a great source of important nutrients, such as vitamin B6, B12 and vitamin D,” says Kurt Hong, MD
