We recently had a very blustery, cold, snowy day, so we came up with a fun lunch (or dinner) idea that our kids loved, we loved…. it was an all around winner. It was a build your own salad buffet that included lots of yummy foods like tomatoes, avocados, shredded cheese, grilled chicken, bacon (yes, bacon), eggs, and more.
For a while now, we’ve enjoyed 2 eggs, 7 grain toast, and milk for breakfast most mornings. I’ve noticed that I feel fuller for much longer when I have this for breakfast. I’ve often wondered, though, if it’s the healthiest option. After doing a little research, I found the following.
Interesting Facts about Eggs
– For instance, did you know that the protein in eggs not only helps build muscle but it also helps you feel fuller longer? Eating the yolk, in addition to the white, can help with muscle building.
– And did you know that eggs are really not bad for your cholesterol levels when cooked the right way? Instead of cooking our eggs in butter, we’re going to try olive oil.
– There are so many benefits to the addition of eggs to your diet. Eggs contain necessary vitamins.
