Best Egg Recipes- The much-loved comfort food and hugely versatile egg is back in vogue. A recent study showed that people who ate high-protein breakfasts were able to control mid-meal hunger pangs and consumed fewer calories during lunch. The amount of protein consumed also plays an important role in maintaining and satisfying your appetite.
According to Tapasya Mundhra, Nutritionist and Health Counsellor, "Eggs are a great source of first class protein. The yolks can be avoided as we anyways tend to consume a lot of fat throughout the day. Since summers are here, I suggest you eat eggs for breakfast or dinner, when the temperatures are a bit cool."
Cooking an egg is always an adventure since it involves technique and precision. Kick off your mornings on a nutritious note with our twists to the traditional recipes. Never will you opt for a simple omelette now!
"Since the human body requires a certain gram of protein everyday it's good to consume eggs. Eggetarians can consume an egg everyday, while non-vegetarians should do so about four times a week", recommends Tapasya.
