This breakfast was very satisfying and kept me full for a large chunk of the morning! And that is saying a lot because I am ALWAYS hungry.
Nothing is worse than a breakfast that does not fill you up! Or when you just skip breakfast all together.
I love having avocado in the AM especially with eggs and it is fun to enjoy your eggs a different way like scooped into an avocado halve!
Let’s talk EGG NUTRITION + FACTS
[Tweet “Did you know eating eggs has been associated with improved cognitive performance in adults? #EggEnthusiast #PutAnEggOnIt #KrollsKorner”]
One large egg is 70 calories.
One large egg has varying amounts of 13 essential vitamins and minerals, including choline plus the antioxidants lutein and zeaxanthin.
Speaking of lutein and zeaxanthin, these nutrients are very important for brain health and cognition. One egg has 252 mg lutein and zeaxanthin.
Lutein and zeaxanthin can also help protect eyes from blue light. (Hellooooo Iphone at night scrolling through the gram!!)

Every one is still worried about cholesterol in eggs.
Cholesterol is no longer a nutrient of concern!
Government and other public health organizations have removed dietary cholesterol limits including eggs in recommended healthy eating patterns. #EATTHEYOLK
One large egg has 6 grams of high-quality protein (12% of the recommended Daily Value (DV) and all 9 essential amino acids. Nearly half of the egg’s protein is in the yolk, so eat the whole egg for all of the protein.
Fitness tips: Eating high-quality protein, like eggs, with carbs post-workout can help build muscle and optimize recovery.
