Diet: 3 Reasons to Eat Eggs

By Daphene Baines

Diet, in this article, is a reference to what you eat and drink. Christian health is important and can be improved, by eating eggs. As a personal trainer I am frequently asked is eating eggs bad for you. Check out my earlier article on “Five foods that make you feel full.”This article featured information on how we should include eggs in our eating routine.

The article goes on to say that eggs are full of protein. This is important, because protein keeps you satisfied longer. Eggs are affordable and easy to cook. Eggs can be eaten at breakfast, lunch, dinner, or snacks. Egg whites may be something you want to consider also.

The intent of this article is to share three benefits of eggs based on the article “7 Reasons You Should Eat Eggs for Breakfast” by Jules Clancy (www.lifehack.org). I will also share an egg recipe.

1. Eggs are filling. Satiety or the absence of hunger is provided by eating eggs. Eggs contain protein. One large egg has 6 grams of protein. Protein is great for providing and sustaining energy. Jules Clancy writes that “whole eggs are one of the most complete sources of protein, meaning eggs contain all the essential amino acids, which we must get from our diets. So try some eggs today.”

2. Eggs don’t cost a lot of money. If you are concerned with your Christian health, eating a food product that is healthy and affordable should be important to you. One of the most expensive food items on our shopping list is usually meat. Eggs are cheaper than chicken, fish, turkey and red meat.

3. Eggs are not as bad for your health as people say. Yes, eggs are high in cholesterol but eating them alone does not cause elevation in cholesterol levels. It is what you eat with eggs that may cause the elevation. So watch the greasy meats, high sugar breads, and other items that are high in fat.

Below is an easy recipe for eggs that is good for your Christian health. It is not just a breakfast recipe but also a quick, low-fat, and low-calorie meal.
