Here's an exciting occasion for the egg lovers! On October 8th, people across the globe world celebrate World Egg Day. The day is celebrated to promote awareness about the benefits of eggs and their contributions to human nutrition.

History of World Egg Day

The day was established during the 1996 IEC Vienna conference. On this day, it was agreed that World Egg Day would be commemorated every year on the second Friday in October. Eggs are a high-protein meal. They are also high in choline, a vitamin that aids memory and brain development.

Reasons why you should eat eggs every day:

Apart from protein, eggs are high in vitamin A, vitamin B5, vitamin B12, phosphorus, and selenium. Eggs are also one of the few foods that include Vitamins D, E, and K.

Egg yolks include healthy fats that help improve brain function and aid in the absorption of fat-soluble vitamins such as vitamin A, D, E, and K.

World Egg Day serves as a timely reminder to include nutritionally dense, protein-packed eggs in our diets on a daily basis. Eggs are a complete protein source, providing all nine essential amino acids necessary for the body.

Protein is an essential ingredient for dieters. The majority of the protein in eggs is found in the egg whites. Eating egg whites can be highly useful if you want to reduce weight or develop muscle.

Eggs have the largest quantity of an essential vitamin called choline, which helps to remove bad cholesterol from the body and regulates the functioning of a neurotransmitter linked with memory and heart management.

Lutein and zeaxanthin are two antioxidants found in eggs that assist to improve eye health and support eyesight.

Eggs include vitamin D, which can help preserve bone health, enhance immunity, and even prevent depression. The wonderful thing about eggs is their natural versatility. Eggs can be eaten in a variety of ways, including omelettes, sandwiches, boiled, scrambled, half-fried, poached, crumbled, and much more. This meal item is quick and simple to prepare, as well as extremely tasty.

You can eat three eggs every day without affecting your weight or cholesterol levels. Consult a health professional to determine how many eggs you can eat in a day.

Happy World Egg Day, everyone!
