There are so many reasons why eggs are one of my favourite protein sources. They’re easy to cook with, super versatile, delicious, affordable, AND packed with nutrition benefits.
A standard serving of 2 large eggs provides 13 grams of complete protein, which provides essential amino acids to build and repair our muscles, organs, and body tissues.
Protein also helps to slow digestion, meaning you’ll feel fuller for longer when including a quality source of protein in your meals and snacks. This is what makes these recipes so satisfying!
In addition to protein, eggs are rich in other essential micronutrients like:
- vitamin A
- vitamin D
- vitamin E
- vitamin B12
Did you know that eggs are even a source of antioxidants, like lutein and zeaxanthin?
What’s more – the fat content of eggs can help your body absorb any fat-soluble nutrients found in the rest of the meal (like in vegetables, for instance)!
The recipes below share easy, delicious ways to reap the health benefits of eggs. Some of my favourites are this easy stovetop shakshuka, this brussels sprout sheet pan hash, and this pesto potato skillet!
