7 Easy Egg Recipes for Delicious, Protein-Rich Meals

Eggs really are all they’re cracked up to be (cholesterol and all)—and these easy egg recipes are all you need to reap their benefits.

First, they’re an excellent source of protein for both meat eaters and vegetarians. (Don’t worry vegans: See here, instead.) Eggs also contain important nutrients that can be difficult to include in your diet.

Choline, for example, is a cousin to the B vitamins and is needed to make a neurotransmitter that’s key to learning and memory. Studies also show it can help protect against cognitive decline and dementia and that people who eat more have lower anxiety levels. The bad news: the vast majority of Americans don’t get enough in their diet. The eggcellent news: Egg yolks are the most concentrated source you can find.

Eggs are also rich in B12, a nutrient that is important for immunity and energy. A deficiency can lead to feeling tired and weak 24-7 (and you definitely don’t have time for that).

Ready to scramble, poach, and hard boil your way to better health? Start by incorporating these seven easy egg recipes into your routine for any meal throughout the day.
