These are the best eggs to eat on Easter
Spoiler alert: we aren’t referring to the chocolate kind!
You know how athletes are obsessed with eating eggs? They may be onto something! Eggs are loaded in protein, vitamins and minerals, making them great for both our health and skin. Below you’ll find three reasons why you should be incorporating this superfood into your meals not only on Easter, but on a regular basis.
Eggs help build muscle
Eggs are one of the most nutritious foods around. They’re very high in protein – 2 eggs contain about the same amount of protein as 100g of meat or fish. They’re also a great source of energy and they help build up muscle, which makes eggs the perfect post-workout snack for men who are trying to bulk up!
Eggs improve your skin’s appearance
Eggs contain the perfect cocktail of vitamins and minerals for strong, healthy skin: amino acids which help with cell renewal and turnover, Vitamin A which helps with tissue regeneration, and Vitamin D which helps new skin cells grow. They’re also a great source of selenium and zinc which helps prevent premature wrinkles. However, don’t forget that it’s still important to apply a daily face cream like Biotherm’s Age Fitness Advanced Day to protect your skin against external aggressions like pollution and smoke.
Eggs help you stay in shape
While eggs are often criticized for being high in cholesterol, they’re still a good food to make an essential part of your diet. If you’re trying to control your calorie-intake, 100g of eggs is less than 150 calories, but because they’re a protein-rich food, they will help you feel full for longer. If you’re ever tired of eating them scrambled or hard-boiled, make pancakes with them! All you need is one egg, flour, milk, a little bit of sugar and whatever toppings you like!
While regular eggs are definitely the best eggs to eat on E aster, a little chocolate never hurt anyone so don’t feel guilty if you end up eating a few chocolate ones as well!
