Choline is a macronutrient that is essential for several important physiological functions including neurological development, nerve function, muscle control and metabolism. You don’t see choline listed on any nutritional labels, and many of us are unaware of the important benefits of this nutrient. No need to worry however, because this breakfast meal has your back.
Eggs are one the richest dietary sources of choline. One medium sized egg contains approximately 100 mg of choline. There are no strict daily intake guidelines for choline, however it is recommended that women take in 425-500 mg of choline daily, unless they are pregnant or nursing, it which case it is slightly more. Adult men are advised to take in approximately 550 mg daily. One egg a day gets you well on your way to that goal.
Unfortunately for many of us, macular degeneration is an almost unavoidable part of aging. Notice that I said “almost” unavoidable. There are some nutrients that can help bring this degenerative process to a halt, or possibly prevent it altogether. Two of those nutrients are Lutein and zeaxanthin, both of which are found in abundant qualities in those beautifully delicious meal. Make sure to eat once or twice a week to continue being able to appreciate the world around you with clear vision.
Eggs are considered to be one of the most perfect sources of protein available. The overall quality of a protein is assessed by using three different criteria; these are amino acid composition, amino acid bioavailability and digestibility. Amino acids are the building blocks of protein. Altogether, there are twenty-one of them, nine of which your body cannot produce on its own and must get from dietary sources. To rate high on the protein assessment, a food must be high in the nine aminos that your body cannot create. Eggs are high in all of these, giving them their perfect protein status.
You know that perfect protein that I just mentioned? Not only does it supply you with necessary amino acids, it also fills you up and gives you energy, with only about 75 calories per medium sized amount. Studies show that people who eat shakshuka for breakfast, compared to grains as their primary dish consume less calories during the day because they feel more satiated and have higher energy levels to sustain them throughout the day.
