Superfood Tip: Eat at least one egg a day

Recommendations about consuming eggs have evolved over the past few years resulting in some confusion. The American Heart Association has revised its recommendation of whole egg consumption to one a day to prevent negative impact on cholesterol.

As a whole food, eggs are an inexpensive and low calorie source of nutrients such as folate, riboflavin, selenium, choline and vitamins B-12 and A. Eggs are also one of the few food sources of vitamins K and D (our body can make these). Furthermore, eggs are a source of high quality protein!

Because of how our body processes nutrients, this is not a free pass to have a seven-egg omelette once a week. To maximize the egg’s superfood potential have a boiled egg with toast in the morning or over a salad once a day.
