There are so many ways to enjoy eggs: scrambled, fried, hard-boiled, poached. According to Onallo Akpa, an average Nigerian consumes 70 pieces of eggs annually. Egg consumption is on the rise, partly because of eggs’ versatility and partly because of their many health benefits. Today, people see eggs as a sort of superfood, low in calories, high in nutrients but that wasn’t always the case. For many years, eggs (or, at least, egg yolks) got a bad rap because of their high cholesterol levels. Eating eggs every day can have a lot of positive benefits for your health. Below are 7 things that happen to your body when you eat eggs every day.
