A Good Egg
At the top on my list of perfect foods, eggs come loaded with an array of key nutrients. In a mere 70 calories per large egg, you get 6 grams of one of the best proteins available, heart-healthy monounsaturated fats, a host of vitamins and minerals (over 30 percent of your vitamin K needs — crucial in bone health), and specialty nutrients, including brain-boosting choline and eye-saving leutin. And don’t even think about not eating the yolk as 40 percent of the protein along with most of the vitamins and good-for-you nutrients are in this golden globe.
As for cholesterol, sure, eggs are loaded, but don’t worry. While each egg contains about two-thirds of the recommended cholesterol budget for your day, studies show that eating eggs daily won’t kick up circulating levels of cholesterol. As scientists dissect the origins of heart disease, they now know it’s the amount of saturated and trans fats in your diet that impacts your risk, rather than how much cholesterol you get from food. You can also boost heart health by using omega-3 enhanced eggs, especially if you rarely eat fish as a source of these essential fats.
But do watch out for who your eggs keep company with on your breakfast plate! Opt for fresh fruit rather than bacon or sausage. You can also use eggs whisked into soups, or scrambled and wrapped into a burrito. Or try hard boiled eggs mixed with diced celery and fresh herbs for a nutritious sandwich spread.
