Most healthy people can eat up to seven high quality eggs a week without affecting their heart health.

Boiled eggs are an excellent breakfast option because they’re easy to prepare, very filling, and contain lots of protein and other nutrients that will keep you energized until lunchtime rolls around. This makes boiled eggs a great option for breakfast for many who may not have access to a kitchen or much time to spare in the morning. 

Whether you’re planning on hard boiling the eggs yourself or buying them already cooked, here’s why this protein-packed breakfast food should be part of your daily routine.

Easy to make

Preparing boiled eggs is easy and premium eggs are super tasty too. Everyone likes their boiled egg in a different way – whether you like a hard-boiled egg or soft boiled egg let’s have a look at the best way to boil an egg  so that it peels perfectly

1. Place eggs in a saucepan or pot and cover with cold water.

The reason for putting eggs first in a saucepan is that if you put the eggs after water – they might crack by falling to the bottom of the pan. 

2. Put the pan over high heat and bring water to a rolling boil. Remove pan from heat and cover.

The question here is how long should you boil the egg? That depends on how you like your egg. Also it’s not advisable to boil eggs for too long as that might make the yolks turn green. Even for hard boiled eggs, you do not need to boil them for too long. 10 minutes maximum. Keeping the eggs covered in hot water for a few minutes will cook them more. 

3. Drain eggs and put them in a bowl filled with icy cold water.

Icy cold water cools the eggs down and prevents yolks from hardening further and stops the chemical reaction that turns the yolks greenish. Some people say that it also makes the peeling process easy.

Now let’s have a look at the health benefits of having fresh eggs for breakfast

1. Eggs keep you feeling full much longer 

The protein and healthy fat content of eggs, helps sustain your energy levels, keeping you satiated for longer and reducing the urge for a mid-morning snack.

2. Eggs aid in weight loss.

3. Eggs have high-quality protein.

Whole eggs are an excellent source of protein, with all the essential amino acids, which we need to get from our diet, in the right ratio eggs are also known to contain the highest biological value (or gold standard) for protein.

4. Eggs tend to be relatively inexpensive.

Compared to other high protein foods such as meat, Ise Japanese eggs are quite budget-friendly. This makes eating eggs easier on a daily basis.

5. Eggs aren’t going to make your cholesterol worse.

While it’s true that eggs do contain a significant amount of cholesterol, the old formula of the cholesterol you eat impacting your blood cholesterol levels has been disproven. So there’s no need to worry about eating eggs increasing your risk for heart disease.

7. Eggs protect your eyesight.

A source of protein

Start your day with a boiled egg as part of a healthy breakfast, and you’ll also be consuming some protein. Protein provides energy, builds muscles and bones, and helps your body function nicely. It can even help you manage your weight! If you’re looking to start or maintain a healthy diet that includes eating less meat, eggs are an excellent source of protein. Choose organic eggs when possible; conventionally raised eggs contain higher cholesterol and fat levels than those grown organically.
