Eggs-ellent Facts
A popular misconception about eggs is that they are high in cholesterol. The truth is eggs are inexpensive, contain the highest-quality protein on the planet and are loaded with small amounts of a variety of vital nutrients, including folate, riboflavin, selenium, B12 and choline. After all, the egg is life renewing itself. And, with just about 75 calories a piece, eggs are a nutrient-dense food and a low-calorie addition to any menu.

Fiber-licious Facts
Fiber is probably best known for its ability to prevent or relieve constipation.
Fiber can provide other health benefits as well, such as lowering your risk of diabetes and heart disease. Fiber lowers blood cholesterol levels and slows the absorption of sugar.

Eating a high-fiber diet may also help with weight loss, because high fiber foods require more chewing time, which gives the body time to register when you are full, so you’re less likely to overeat.
