There have been various articles in recent weeks claiming ‘eating just 3 eggs a week increases your risk of dying young, study shows’ which is patently ridiculous (Unless they were eating a Cadbury’s cream egg everyday that is!)

Scrambled? Poached? Hard-boiled? However you like your eggs, try to eat plenty of these versatile wonders each week and take advantage of their protein, healthy fat and the absence of carbohydrate that they contain.

Adding bread and ketchup into the mix will make render your healthy meal unhealthy, but a four-egg omelette with spinach is but one example of a perfect breakfast, high in micronutrients and low in calories.
