PHIL Image 14400

ID#:14400
Description:Depicted in this photograph is a green ceramic bowl that had been filled with fresh store-bought, uncooked chicken eggs. The yellow carton from which these eggs were taken can be seen in the background.

Eggs are a good source of protein. Proteins are part of every cell, tissue, and organ in our bodies. These body proteins are constantly being broken down and replaced. The protein in the foods we eat is digested into amino acids that are later used to replace these proteins in our bodies.

Eggs also contain cholesterol, so when you follow the tips to reduce your saturated fat intake, in most cases, you will be reducing your dietary cholesterol intake at the same time. For example, if you switch to low-fat and fat-free dairy products, you will reduce your intake of both saturated fat and cholesterol.
