Eggs are incredibly efficient for delivering nutrients at a low cost (15 cents per egg!) and low calorie count. A single egg packs 6 grams of protein, antioxidants and 13 vitamins and minerals. They’re extremely versatile and can be cooked solo or with other foods to create a wide variety of dishes. Eggs make a great breakfast — starting off right with the protein, vitamins and minerals found in eggs will help keep you going through the day!
