Studies have gone back and forth about the health benefits of eggs, but I can honestly tell you my own study of eating two eggs a day both now and throughout my nearly 200-pound weight loss proved to be effective. Eggs are good for you--each one has 6 grams of protein and they are loaded with amino acids. They also contain mostly good fats with only 1.5 grams of saturated fats. Eggs are loaded with vitamin D which is so important. Below are some of my favorite recipes from my Fitness Answer Meal Plan.

2 Whole Eggs
2 Cups of Fresh Spinach
½ Cup Salsa
¼ Teaspoon of Garlic
1/8 Teaspoon of Dried Oregano
1/8 Teaspoon of Dill
1/8 Teaspoon of Cilantro

In a nonstick frying pan sauté fresh spinach in olive oil and garlic. Add in salsa, oregano, cilantro and dill. Beat eggs in separate bowl and pour into pan. Stir evenly around vegetables, and flip. Cook both sides until golden brown.

¼ Cup of Cottage Cheese
2 Eggs
1 oz Shredded Cheddar Cheese
1 Cup of Sliced Mushrooms
1 Cup of Diced Green Peppers

In a nonstick skillet sauté mushrooms and peppers in olive oil. Beat eggs with milk in small bowl. Add eggs into skillet, distributing vegetables evenly. Sprinkle with cheese and cover until egg is cooked through. Remove from heat and place cottage cheese on ½ of omelet. Flip other side over on top of cheese.
