What’s low carb, portable, easy & something that I can eat all the time?

I’m going to give you my most convenient, low carb, high protein and convenient snack around. I eat this food all the time, usually as a snack, and sometimes as a complete meal. It’s quick to cook and can be used in many ways and forms. You may be wondering what it is…

It’s the humble egg.

Eggs are the perfect source of protein, providing brain nutrients, easily digested amino acids and many other vitamins that are vital for our bodies. The problem is that eggs are often dismissed with high caution. I want to go through some positive benefits of eggs, and why we should stop dismissing them as a caution food and begin to appreciate the many wonderful characteristics it has, especially on how much it can change our body composition and overall health.

4 key points that make eggs a powerhouse nutritional food.

  1. Eggs are rich in nutrients that are great for brain health.
    The main nutrient is called choline, which is found in the egg yolk, and our bodies use this to make neurotransmitters called acetylcholine, that improves cognition. This helps improve your focus and concentration.
  2. It helps you create a leaner, muscular body.
    Eggs contain amino acids that aid in development of strength and muscle. It’s also great for repairing muscle tissue. Eat eggs after your training session to speed up the rate of recovery and increase your muscle mass.
  3. They are cheap, portable and easy to put in many foods.
    Boil, poach, scramble, fry or even put in other foods, such as oats, healthy cookies, breads, and even pancakes! Healthy eating doesn’t have to be boring. Eggs provide an endless option, that will combat food boredom. When I get sick of boiling mine, I may make scrambled eggs, adding vegetables or sweet potato. You are only limited by your imagination.
  4. Eggs are quite delicious and are great strategy for those trying to lose body fat – as eggs are satiating and reduce hunger.
    Eggs are such a superior protein, and they increase fullness and decrease subsequent food intake after meals. You also have the bonus effect of regulating your insulin levels and aiding you in losing body fat.

You are probably thinking, well, what about the dangers? Yes, there are many speculations regarding eggs. But I would highly suggest you do not plan your life around so-called studies, as there are many variables to consider, and it’s not always completely accurate. Unless you have a genetic issue, or have been warned by your doctor otherwise, eggs are a wonderful component when part of a balanced diet. Your body usually balances out cholesterol, and there are again, many factors involving elevated levels of cholesterol. From my own blood results, I would say that increases in cholesterol are mostly due to an over consumption of high fat animal protein, such as bacon, steak, lamb and eating the skin and fat off these sources. When I cut all of the meat eating out of my diet, and chose only seafood, I experienced a huge reduction in cholesterol.

Hopefully this has helped you decide to add in the humble and gracious egg into your diet. It’s been my staple food source, and I eat as many as I can per week, with no negative effects.
