Our generation has grown up listening to this slogan – ‘Sunday Ho Ya Monday Roz Khaao Ande’ (whether it is Sunday or Monday, eat eggs every day). And why not! Eggs are not only delicious but are also extremely healthy for us. Here 3 main health benefits of the superfood.
Everyday Dose Of Protein
To all the ‘eggetarians’, here is an amazing news for you. Consuming at least an egg a day will fulfil your daily dose of protein. A single large egg contains nearly 6 gm protein. Of course, this does not apply for all those who have heavy workout sessions everyday; they need a lot more of protein intake than that. No matter how less time you have for breakfast, a boiled egg and a glass of milk will be enough to keep you going throughout the morning.
Lowers Risks of Heart Problems
Many believe in a myth that one who is suffering from heart problems and/or obesity should not consume foods such as eggs much. This is so wrong! Though cholesterol is one of the major causes of the two health issues, many fail to notice the difference between good cholesterol and bad cholesterol. Eggs contain the good cholesterol and does not increase risks of heart problems at all. To keep it simple and healthy, have boiled eggs instead of fried or scrambled ones.
