13. Egg Whites
We know, eggs are full of protein, right? Yes. But if we make our morning omelette or scrambled eggs on toast using just the whites of the eggs, we’re missing out on a whole host of beneficial vitamins, minerals, healthy fats and protein.
Eggs have been through a pretty bad rap over the years after they were linked with a rise in cholesterol levels after consuming them. However, later studies found that eating eggs, including both the white and the yolk, does not increase our risk of developing heart disease or any of its associated health problems.
It’s therefore healthier and better for sustaining us and keeping our hunger pangs at bay, if we eat the whole egg. Be that poached, scrambled, boiled or in a tasty omelette (just avoid fried eggs as much as possible due to the fat content of the oil). Pair your eggs with wholemeal toast and a side of blanched spinach for a balanced breakfast that will keep you going until lunchtime.
