Food Fact: Eggs

Because eggs are an excellent source of protein, they help you feel fuller longer, give sustained energy, and may also help build and preserve muscle strength.

Although the egg whites contain the majority of the protein, the yolks are actually the most nutrient-dense part of the egg. Besides protein, the yolks contain lutein, which is especially important for eye health, choline, essential for brain function, and folate, vital to cell production.
