Egg Facts
1. Having eggs for breakfast can help you stay full longer and eat fewer calories at lunch.

2. Eggs are rich in lutein, an antioxidant that protects against macular degeneration, which can lead to blindness.

3. Tired of salmon? Eggs have equal amounts of omega-3-fatty acids in them as 3 ounces of salmon.

4. Eggs are a brain booster. They have the most concentrated source of a B vitamin that's important for brain and nervous cell functioning.

Knowing all these facts, I'd say try these diabetic egg recipes!
