Eggs add a boost of flavour and nutrition to any meal. A serving of just two large eggs provides 13 grams of protein, plus vitamin A, D, E folate, iron, zinc and choline. What's even better is that they can be eaten at any time of the day: before work as breakfast, during your lunch break or while you wind down in the evening.
