Eggs are among the most nutritious things you can eat. Eggs are full of vitamins, minerals, high quality proteins, good fats and various other nutrients. A large egg contains about 77 calories, 6 grams of quality protein, 5 grams of fat and only a trace amount of carbohydrates. For anyone embarking on a low carb diet, eggs are a great solution for breakfast menus or snacks. I keep boiled eggs in the fridge for a filling, quick snack on busy days or simply to knock out a craving.
The only problem with eggs is eggs can be boring. Frying an egg in a half teaspoon of coconut oil or scrambling eggs with a spot of butter can get old fast. The good news is eggs are far from boring if you use a little imagination and throw in some other nutritious foods.
