Eggs have gotten a bad wrap over the years, mainly due to their cholesterol content. Now, however, it is understood that it is the saturated fat in our diet that is more of the culprit in raising cholesterol levels than the cholesterol in the foods we eat. Eggs are a potent source of several essential vitamins and minerals as well as protein and essential fatty acids; and, at only 80 cals per egg, they have a high nutrient density.
