As my mother is known to say, eggs are a great start to the "perfect breakfast." Eggs have had a confusing reputation, though, and were even found on the bad list in the not too distant past. They had all sorts of negative effects - high cholesterol and heart disease to name a few. Luckily, new research has shown eggs are, in fact, a healthy and desirable addition to polite society. The cholesterol found in eggs is now agreed to be the "good" cholesterol, and, large amounts of protein and essential nutrients combined with only about 70 calories per egg, have succeeded in repairing the egg's tarnished reputation.
