Since eggs contain all the essential amino acids, it is considered as a complete protein.    One medium hard boiled egg provides not only 6 gms of protein, but it is packed with riboflavin, folate, vitamin B6, vitamin B12, D & E, iron, and zinc.    The perfect combination of essential fats and protein make eggs very satisfying thus reducing hunger pangs. Including 1-2 eggs in breakfast helps you lose weight as it boosts and stabilises your metabolism right early in the morning.    In nutshell we can say it will be wise to turn atleast ovo-vegetarian to avail various health benefits of an egg.            1 comments:       BLOG_CMT_createIframe(\'\', \'16591745223468531617\');     Home Older Post   Subscribe to: Post Comments (Atom) window.___gcfg = {\'lang\': \'en_GB\'};     Pages Home     . .     Popular Posts Top Ten Iron Rich Foods   Let\'s Detox!!   Super Sexy & Glowing Skin You Always Wanted   Five Healthy Office Snack Ideas   Is Sugar Craving killing your Perfect Diet Plan?
