Discover why eggs pack a nutritional punch, then get cracking with some of our favourite recipe ideas
Scrambling, poaching and boiling are the healthiest way to eat eggs. Frying is the least healthy option, but if you just can't resist, try to use the minimal amount of oil or a non-stick frying pan.
You can also make it much easier for your body to absorb the heme iron in eggs by eating foods rich in vitamin C at the same time. "You could have tomatoes with your scrambled egg or sip on orange juice," advises Dr Reid.

Since I started having 2 eggs as part of my breakfast, I have managed to drop below the 10% fat percentage. I eat eggs 6x a week. It is a tasty way to start the day, provides you with a healthy protein boost, and keeps you full throughout the morning. And indeed, all the research I have seen shows that eggs are not effecting cholesterol levels - if part of a healthy diet!
When you are always on the go, and cannot prepare food that contain similar nutrients needs, egg is an alternative source.
