According to WebMD, "Eggs contain the highest biological value (or gold standard) for protein. One egg has only 75 calories but 7 grams of high-quality protein, 5 grams of fat, and 1.6 grams of saturated fat, along with iron, vitamins, minerals, and carotenoids."
Eggs also have a highly satisfying source of protein that leave you feeling full and content. Not only are they easy to eat, eggs are adaptable to any meal and inexpensive. Additionally, manufacturers and chicken farmers are now taking steps to enhance eggs' nutritional properties, increasing an entire industry devoted to improving the dietary quality of the egg.
Whether you prefer designer (free-range) or generic eggs, they are vastly versatile. Used for thousands of recipes, eggs just simply can't be beat (no pun intended).
In honor of Easter, we celebrate the value and nutrition of eggs. Read more for some of our fave recipes!
