Put an Egg on It
In 2015, the USDA revised the Dietary Guidelines and eliminated the cholesterol limit. Substantial research demonstrates that dietary cholesterol does not negatively impact cholesterol or increase the risk of heart disease. With that controversy settled, we can enjoy the whole egg, and all the nutritional benefits it offers.
Egg yolks are the most concentrated food source of choline, a nutrient essential for brain health at every stage of life, including fetal brain development, as well as cognitive performance, lifelong learning ability, and memory into adulthood.
Eggs are one of the only natural food-based sources of Vitamin D (other foods are often fortified with the vitamin), which promotes the absorption of calcium for strong and healthy bones.

Yolks also contain antioxidants found to reduce the risk of cataracts and may delay the progression of age-related vision decline.
Stay Full Longer:
One egg packs in 6 grams of high-quality protein, plus 5 grams of healthy mono and polyunsaturated fat—the secret weapon for curbing appetite and sustainable energy from one meal to the next. Studies showed that when children and adults ate eggs for breakfast they felt fuller and ate 70-135 fewer calories at lunch, compared to when they ate a low-protein breakfast.
