This versatile food staple is one you can’t leave out of your diet—especially the yolks. Most of the 13 different vitamins and half of the protein in an egg are found in the yolk, so don’t go overboard with the egg white craze. Amino acids found in eggs also are converted into muscle, skin, collagen, and other body tissue more efficiently than the proteins from any other food you eat. Studies show that people who eat eggs in the morning have an easier time avoiding excessive caloric intake during the day. If that’s not enough to convince you, two eggs provide nearly half your daily quota for choline, which basically helps you to remember things—like your anniversary, bro.
