Eggs are practically synonymous with Easter—but these versatile, protein-packed staples cook up into a perfect meal any time of year.
Eating eggs might give your meal more staying power too. A recent study found that when people ate a scrambled-egg-and-toast breakfast, they felt more satisfied—and ate less at lunch—than when they ate a bagel (that supplied the same number of calories) another day. The combination of high protein and moderate fat in eggs might make them especially filling, say experts. Even if you’re watching your cholesterol, a daily egg can likely fit into your eating plans.
