An egg a day keeps doctor away - maybe yes.
Until about 2 decades ago, eggs were notorious for making levels of cholesterol high, leading to heart attacks, plaque formation in blood vessels, atherosclerosis, and blockages within arteries.
This myth has been busted now.
Eggs are a rich, simple and digestible source of proteins & vitamins. If combined with carbohydrates like some boiled potatoes/slice of bread/chapati- it becomes a healthy breakfast that will keep a person full for at least 4 hours, minus hunger pangs or desire to munch a snack full of bad fats. Please do not combine eggs with bacon/sausage or other rich foods having animal fats.
