Why Eat Egg In Winters? | Health Benefits Of Egg In Winters
With exceptional protein content and a range of essential nutrients, there's no doubt why egg is one of the most nutritious foods on the planet. Vitamin A, B2, B6, D, E and Calcium are abundantly found in eggs. Further, eggs are said to keep us full for longer and thus, aid weight loss too. According to the book 'Healing Foods' by DK Publishing, eggs help in boosting the metabolic activity of the body. Macrobiotic Nutritionist and Health Practitioner Shilpa Arora notes, "With their high quality proteins and fat soluble vitamins, eggs are the perfect delicious treats for anyone looking to lose weight." Eggs also come with healthy fats such as Omega 3, which keep the body healthy and warm in the chilly winters.
