For non-vegetarians, eggs and meat act as a boon. No other food can provide you with the amount of nutrition and proteins that they can. Initially, they were demonized for being high in cholesterol, but new studies show that they’re perfectly safe and healthy.
They are widely available and relatively inexpensive. Their rich quantity of protein, vitamin, and mineral content associated with low-fat content is very helpful in maintaining a protein-rich diet.
Eggs: A large egg is said to contain about 6 grams of protein. They are also a good source of vitamin D which strengthens bone health as well as the immune system. Their role in increasing metabolism, liver functions, and brain development also make them good food sources. About three whole eggs are perfectly safe to eat every day.
Chicken Breasts: Good news for chicken lovers – It is an excellent source of vitamin B, vitamin D, calcium, iron, zinc, and trace amounts of vitamin A and vitamin C. Chicken breasts build and maintain mass muscle, strengthen bones, and reduces appetite. According to a study, consumption of about 400-500 grams of chicken a day is beneficial for the body.
Lamb: 100 grams of cooked lamb contains about 25 grams of protein plus good quantities of potassium and vitamin B-12. It is also said to be a rich source of iron, magnesium, selenium, and omega-3 fatty acids. They are beneficial in strengthening and growing bones, reducing tiredness and fatigue, and building up one’s immunity system. Although eating lamb every day is not recommended, you can have 100-200 grams of it, two times a week.
