5 Reasons Eggs Should Be on The Menu for Runners

The white and yellow parts of the egg work together to bring you all the vitamins, healthy fats, trace minerals and other nutrients your body needs, especially when exercising.

So why should you be eating more of them?

  • Mood Boost
  • Eggs contain omega-3 fatty acids, zinc, B vitamins, and iodine – nutrients that work to battle fatigue and reverse bad moods.

  • Reduce the risk of cancer
  • Eggs contain high levels of choline. According to recent studies, women who eat higher levels of choline are 24% less likely to develop breast cancer. Choline is concentrated in the yolk of an egg and constitutes around 30% of your Recommended Dietary Allowance (RDA).

  • Feed Your Brain
  • Choline is also effective at increasing the release of acetylcholine – a neurotransmitter that helps your brain store and recall information better. Omega-3 fatty acids also help power the brain. Some scientists believe the vitamins in eggs produced from grass fed hens go a long way to helping people avoid Alzheimer’s disease.

  • Sight
  • Eggs are rich in lutein and zeaxanthin which help stave off macular degeneration and cataracts. The same antioxidants can be found in kale and spinach – perfect additions to your omelette.

  • Slimming
  • Including eggs in your diet can actually help you lose weight when compared against a diet containing more bread products. Eating eggs in the morning leads to fewer calories being eaten throughout the day for most people.

    Try including egg dishes into your regime, especially if you’re training for upcoming running events, and see if they can help you increase your times, as well as your overall heal
