Eggs are a great source of protein and nutrients!
For many, eggs form an interesting and convenient compromise between being a vegetarian and a non-vegetarian. For those concerned about getting the right amount of protein, but without converting into full-fledged non-vegetarians, opting for eggs as a source has become more popular now. But that’s not all that an egg contributes to your well-being. Stacked with a host of nutrients, minerals and vitamins, many doctors and nutritionists advise people to have at least on-to-two eggs a day.
“Easily available and easy to cook, eggs are rich in protein and have all the essential amino acids. As advised by medical studies, we should eat only two eggs in a day and six-to-eight eggs a week, which helps to balance out your body metabolism and also maintains your balance diet,” says Dr Taranjeet Kaur, metabolic balance coach and senior nutritionist, AktivOrtho, New Delhi.
She further adds, “When eating eggs, make sure you do not leave out the yolk as it contains a lot of good nutrients and has a good absorption level of your vitamins.” Nevertheless, for those with already high cholesterol levels, opting for just egg whites are also a good idea. This oval food has other uses too. “Applying an egg on your hair and skin is one such good practice because it conditions and strengthens your hair and an egg white promotes wrinkle free skin,” says Dr Kaur.
