As the holidays come (this previous halloween included), people often joke about November being the first month that begins that downhill of your fit health, because of so many holidays jam packed into just a few months.
Imagine the next long weekends in the Philippines with vacation-filled holidays (ASEAN Week + extra school off, or TV + food binge nights). It’s hard to stay on track with eating clean when there are chichiryas to be had.
While we wholeheartedly believe that you should be enjoying yourself (that memories are always better cherished than macros), know that it’s still smart to practice at least some level of healthfulness during these months.
So, for the month of November, we’re giving you this very simple healthy eating challenge to you: eat a piece of egg a day! Maning-mani.
It’s hard to stay on track with eating clean when there are bibingka, puto-bungbong, and other festive foods right in front of your eyes. So here’s one that’ll sure make you feel good!
Seems easy enough as I’ve said, right? Yet when things get busy and parties are thrown, sometimes consuming your recommended daily amount of nutrients doesn’t even happen.
Starting tomorrow, we’re making sure you get all of those lovely nutrients and filling up on good, healthy eggs. That’s your healthy eating challenge! Eat a least a single piece of EGG, however you want it: sunny-side up, boiled, deviled, scrambled, as long as it’s an EGG, per day. And if you end up eating more – even better!
THE RECOMMENDED DAILY AMOUNT OF EGG IS:
With 6.29 grams of protein and just 78 calories, a simple hard-boiled egg is a food that can refuel your body and help control hunger. Eat a boiled egg for a snack or as part of a nutritious breakfast to take advantage of the nutrients it offers.
As for the egg yolks, four per week should be enough because they are high in dietary cholesterol, which increases blood cholesterol levels.
And as for me dose, I normally take more than 6 egg whites thru Pasteurized Liquid Egg Whites: easier to take with my protein drink without the munching!
To load those plates with eggs, because not only are you giving your body nutrients, you’re also crowding out the other bad foods that are trying to make it onto your plate because of feeling full. It’s a win-win! Let’s do this![bctt tweet=”I’M IN! Join me in the November #RelatableFitness Challenge to eat ONE EGG every day!”]
