When it comes to nutritional value, eating eggs can pack a powerful punch that’s hard to top. “Along with milk, eggs contain the highest biological value (or gold standard) for protein,” Kathleen M. Zelman, registered dietitian and director of nutrition for WebMD, wrote on the corporation’s site. “One egg has only 75 calories but 7 grams of high-quality protein, 5 grams of fat, and 1.6 grams of saturated fat, along with iron, vitamins, minerals, and carotenoids.” Not only that, but eggs are, according to the expert, “easy to eat, well-tolerated by young and old, adaptable to any meal, and inexpensive.” Eggs are indeed a superfood, but can there be too much of a good, er, super thing?
