You Can’t Beat Eggs For Breakfast

Eggs are packed full of goodness providing high quality natural protein and over 11 vitamins and minerals. You can eat up to six eggs a week as part of a healthy, balanced diet – they are an “egg-ceptional” go-to breakfast favourite. Here are six more reasons why “you can’t beat eggs”!

PROTEIN

Did you know eggs have 6 grams of high-quality protein? And did you know a protein-packed breakfast helps sustain mental and physical energy throughout the day? That’s good news, especially if you’re a body-building chess champion.

ZERO CARBS NO SUGAR

Eggs contain zero carbs and no sugar. That means you can eat a well-rounded breakfast during the week without feeling round yourself.

VITAMINS AND MINERALS

Eggs are packed with over 11 different essential vitamins and minerals .Seems like a lot but remember – they ARE essential.

ANTIOXIDANTS

Eggs contain both lutein and zeaxanthin, the weirdly named antioxidants which help maintain healthy eyesight

NO GLUTEN? NO PROBLEM

Let’s not forget that eggs are naturally gluten-free. Always have been, always will be. And that’s awesome because there isn’t exactly a glut of gluten-free breakfast options.

FOOD FOR THOUGHT

Eggs don’t come with a complicated, jam-packed ingredient list because they only contain one ingredient. It’s called “eggs.” And eggs are the least expensive source of high-quality protein.
