Up Your Protein Intake With Eggs
While they don't pack the punch of most meats, eggs are still a great source of protein because more of their fat is monounsaturated. In addition, the yolks provide easily absorbable lutein, an important antioxidant (also found in spinach and other green vegetables) that benefits your eyes and your skin. Eggs are a wonderful complement to almost any vegetable, including greens, mushrooms, tomatoes, and onions. They're also fantastic with smoked fish, whole-grain toast, and beans. Take a look in your refrigerator — if you have eggs, you're well on your way to a complete, delicious meal. And if you don't, your challenge is to stock up now!
