MAKE EGGS PART OF YOUR DIET
More than 40 years of research has demonstrated that healthy adults can enjoy eggs without significantly impacting their risk for heart disease. One large egg is: *a source of 6 grams of high quality protein *only 70 calories * nutrient dense containing 13 essential vitamins and minerals *contains choline which is good for memory function and muscle control.
Whole eggs are best nutritionally. Egg whites have been a favorite for athletes and fitness professionals for their high- quality protein, 1 egg white has 3.6 grams of protein and only 17 calories but the overwhelming majority of essential vitamins and nutrients are in the yolk. In studies, whole eggs resulted in significantly greater protein synthesis versus egg whites.
Eggs are a quick source of protein and can be prepared many ways. Mixing them with other food sources optimizes nutrient absorption. In a Purdue study, adding eggs to a leafy vegetable salad improved Vitamin E absorption significantly.
Protein is an important way to start your day to control appetite for weight management and weight loss. Here is an easy recipe to prepare ahead when time is short:
Mini Egg Casseroles
3-4 pieces wholegrain or bread, torn
½ cup chopped onion
½ cup chopped green or red sweet pepper
½ cup chopped mushrooms
1 cup skim milk
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
2 tsp dry mustard
Salt and pepper, to taste
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Grease or spray with non- stick spray 12 muffin tins. Sautee vegetable until soft in non- stick pan. Drop bread pieces in each tin about 2/3 of the way up. Sprinkle with vegetables, then follow with cheese. Whisk together rest of ingredients. Pour egg mixture evenly in each muffin tin. Do not over fill. Bake 15-18 minutes, or until golden brown on top. May be eaten immediately or freeze in single layer in freezer bag or container. Seal well. To prepare frozen: Wrap a muffin in a moist towel and microwave
