7. Eggs

We can all agree that an egg is probably the most humble kitchen staple, however, its benefits are far from being so. As a matter of fact, egg consumption seems to change the pattern of LDL particles from small, dense LDL (bad) to large LDL, which is actually linked to a reduced heart disease risk.

“Eggs, the whole egg, with the yolk, are my top pick for foods that give you energy. Starting your day with eggs, or choosing a hard-boiled egg as a snack are two easy ways to get lasting energy. The protein and healthy fats in the whole egg help to keep blood sugar levels stable. This is absolutely key to preventing afternoon slumps and sugar cravings which tend to come after carbohydrate dense foods are eaten. Eggs are so versatile and can truly be eaten any time of the day. People shouldn’t miss out on this nutritional powerhouse or the energy benefits they can get,” says Courtney Ferreira, MS, RD, LDN.
