Healthy eating & protein
Healthy protein comes egg shaped
At Birds Bros, protein comes in one shape but in many different sizes and varieties.
Whether you’re vegetarian, have a beef about climate change, or are simply looking to swap carbohydrates for healthy protein as part of a diet, our eggs shape up perfectly.
Eggs are a great source of efficient, high quality protein; a large egg contains approximately 7.5g of this important micronutrient.
What’s more, eating eggs before or after exercise won’t just top up your energy level: as part of a balanced diet they can actually help your muscles develop and recover better.
Both the white and yolk of an egg are rich in nutrients – proteins, vitamins and minerals – whilst the yolk also contains cholesterol, fat soluble vitamins and essential fatty acids.
No wonder they find flavour with just everyone.
Eat to your heart’s delight
The answer to the question ‘are eggs good for you’ is a resounding yes! Better still, recent advice from the Food Standards Agency has confirmed that British Lion Eggs are now safe to be eaten runny or even raw by everyone, including pregnant women, babies and vulnerable groups such as the elderly, particularly since they’re no longer linked with an increase in cholesterol.
Fresh eggs are one of nature’s most nutrient-dense foods, and fit easily into many diets – vegetarian too, as a protein substitute – and lifestyles. Their nutrients are particularly important for many people – and several of them are not found in many other foods.
Best of all, there’s no limit on how many you can eat each week. So crack on, and enjoy!
