MCD breakkie

A healthy and satisfying breakfast plus awesome chat session with the awesome chatting partner equals to ♥. Haha. Went and have breakfast at MCD with Lienn. Had a long chat session about almost every single thing on earth starting from bubble milk teas to future life plans.

Super oily but nice Hashbrowns. Our all-time favourite.

Sausage McMuffin with egg.

Talking about a healthy breakfast, I would like to share an email that I received a few days ago regarding the benefits of eggs. To those who love eggs, eg: Lienn, Joanne and every other people on earth and to those who hate eggs, eg: the one and only Jessica Lee Yue Lin.

I dont know whether the source is reliable or not but it's good to know anyway.

10 Health Benefits of Eggs :

1. Eggs are great for the eyes. According to one study, an egg a day may prevent muscular degeneration due to the carotenoid content, specifically lutein and zeaxanthin. Both nutrients are more readily available to our bodies from eggs than from other sources. 

2. In another study, researchers found that people who eat eggs everyday lower their risk of developing cataracts, also because of the lutein and zeaxanthin in eggs.

3. One egg contains 6grams of high-quality protein and all 9 essential amino acids.

4. According to a study by the Harvard School of Public Health, there is no significant link between egg consumption and heart disease. In fact, according to one study, regular consumption of eggs may help prevent blood clots, stroke, and heart attacks.
5. They are a good source of choline. One egg yolk has about 300micrograms of choline. Choline is an important nutrient that help regulate the brain, nervous system, and cardiovascular system.

6. They contain the right kind of fat. One egg contains just 5 grams of fat and only 1.5 grams of that is saturated fat.
7. New research shows that, contrary to previous belief, moderate consumption of eggs does not have a negative impact on cholesterol. In fact, recent studies have shown that regular consumption of two eggs
per day does not affect a person's lipid profile
and may, in fact, improve it.Research suggests that it is saturated fat that raises cholesterol rather than dietary cholesterol.

8. Eggs are one of the only food that contain naturally occurring vitamin D.

9. Eggs may prevent breast cancer. In one study, women who consumed at least 6 eggs per week lowered their risk of breast cancer by 44%.

10. Eggs promote healthy hair and nails because of their high sulphur content and wide array of vitamins and minerals. Many people find their hair growing faster after adding eggs to their diet, especially if they were previously deficient in foods containing sulphur or B12.
