The benefits of egg-white vs whole egg
Eggs, in all their formats, whether just the whites or the whole egg, are nutritional powerhouses. They are easy to find, cook and carry being a perfect snack packed with protein and nutrients. Eggs and egg whites are easily digested and absorbed by the body which makes them ideal nutrition packed foods for both children and adults with a variety of health goals. Whilst egg whites are a fantastic source of lean protein, whole eggs are also a great source of heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids and other nutrients.
Pre and post workout nutrition
Our bodies require fuel to maintain our bodies and day to day actions but also for any exercise that you might do. Pre workout nutrition is mainly based around providing enough energy for our muscles to work efficiently. Post workout nutrition is based around repairing our muscles and restocking our muscle fuel supply.
What is protein and why do we need this for health and well-being?
With the modern world and a range of convenience foods, it’s become difficult to know what is a healthy diet and we often rely on pre-packaged convenience foods, supplements and processed items or to go the other way and cut out valuable food groups such as carbohydrates, fats and rely on eating ‘superfoods’.
In this guide, we will share what a normal healthy diet is and what your body requires to be healthy. We are all unique individuals whose bodies will respond to different things but the main groups of foods are universal.
What micronutrients do eggs contain and what do these do?
Our body requires us to eat not just for fuel but also for growth, development and materials for our bodily functions. Macronutrients provide our body with energy whilst micronutrients do not provide the body directly with any energy but are essential for the proper functioning of the body.
There are two types of micronutrient: vitamins and minerals. They are essential for all metabolic processes (all the reactions that keep you alive!) and many others such as production of hormones and strengthening teeth and bones, so it is very important to consume enough of them!
