Nutritionists recommend that we should make eggs a part of our regular diet. But that does not mean you can prepare them the way you like and expect it to provide you with wholesome nutrition. The way you prepare eggs matter a lot, in terms of how and how much protein it offers.

Recently, nutritionist Nmami Agarwal took to social media to share the ideal way to prepare eggs. She says “sunny side up” is the healthiest.

In her post, she said, “Fun fact: Most nutrients in an egg are present in the yolk. Eating the egg white and yolk together in a whole egg provides the right balance of protein, fat, and calories.”

She added that the combination (egg white + yolk) allows most people to feel fuller and satisfied after eating eggs.

One egg contain:
– Vitamin A – 6 per cent

– Vitamin B5 – 7 per cent

– Vitamin B12 – 9 per cent

– Phosphorus – 9 per cent

– Vitamin B2 – 15 per cent

– Selenium – 22 per cent
