#1. The egg whites are high in protein, the building blocks of muscle. Excellent if you're doing lots of weight lifting and cardio too.
#2. The egg yolks are high in Omega-3 fatty acids, which are one of the good fats that your body needs in order to give you lots of energy, boost brain power, etc. They make you both smarter and faster.
And the best way to eat eggs isn't cooked or fried or poached... its raw. And therefore you need a way to eat raw eggs.
You could simply crack 3 eggs in a glass and drink it down, Rocky Balboa style, but most of don't really like that idea. Squeamish taste buds.
So the next best solution is to make a raw egg protein shake.
- 1 or 2 Eggs
- 500 mL of Milk or Soy Milk
- 1 cup of Berries, or 1 tbsp of Chocolate Syrup, or 1/2 of cup of Ice Cream or Yogurt (preferably Low Fat)
- A bowl or really big cup. I find a large martini shaker works well.
- A hand blender.
Blend the eggs and milk first, then add your choice of flavouring. Berries works best, but if you don't have that available use chocolate syrup or ice cream/yogurt. Blend until there is no chunks.
Pour into a tall glass, drink and enjoy.
Done this way you will barely notice the taste of raw eggs and it is a very satisfying drink.
Makes a good breakfast after jogging but also good for an after workout snack.
