Eggs could be the ultimate breakfast bite. With 6 grams of protein per large egg, they make getting your a.m. protein fix a cinch. Because their protein comes naturally packaged with a small amount of satiating fat, they also keep you away from the office vending machine. Concerned about cholesterol? Relax. Eggs have 14% less cholesterol than they did a decade ago, with about 185 milligrams per large egg. That’s slightly more than half the amount most healthy people can eat in a day. Like peanut butter, it may not always be worth your while to fork over extra dollars for omega-3 enhanced eggs. Many of these are pumped up with plant omega-3s instead of the long chain omega-3s EPA and DHA recommended for heart health, so reading the fine print on the label is a must.
