You Can Now Have 2 Eggs for Breakfast

What is the first thing that comes to your mind once you hear the word “breakfast”? For me, what comes to mind is a plate full of toast, bacon, and scrambled eggs. Eggs have always been a staple to every breakfast meal because they are packed with nutrients and proteins that will help keep your energy levels up during the day.

However, most people I know tend to shy away from making eggs a part of their daily habit. Blame the news, studies, and findings stating how eggs are full of cholesterol and that people should not always have them for their meal since it will have negative effects to the body. I used to believe that notion too, until a recent British study opposed the entire negative claims about eggs and health.
