15 Ways to Eat Eggs for Dinner

Eggs are a good source of vitamins and nutrients; the majority of which are found in the egg white. You can cook them in a variety of different ways – poached, scrambled, and fried, to name a few.

They “definitely grew in popularity [in 2016], when the 2015-2010 Dietary Guidelines for Americans lifted the decades-old dietary cholesterol restriction of 300 milligrams daily,” says Amy Gorin, MS, RDN, owner of Amy Gorin Nutrition in Jersey City, New Jersey.

“A large egg provides 6 grams of protein, which is 12 percent of the daily value — the protein in eggs is one of the easiest types for your body to absorb,” Gorin says. “Eggs are full of nutrients, including eye-helping lutein and zeaxanthin and vitamin D, which is helpful for bones.”
