Eggs are a valuable part of a healthy and balanced diet because they provide high quality protein and a whole range of vitamins (A, E, D and K, vitamins B) and minerals (especially phosphorus, iron, zinc and sulfur). Egg consumption is beneficial in weight control, brain health, eye function, and optimal health condition during pregnancy. Studies have shown that egg consumption for breakfast increases the feeling of satiety, what results in lower calorie intake per day. It is a relatively inexpensive and nutritionally valuable meal that is also beneficial for the muscle growth and better skin condition.
