A hardboiled egg is a perfect part of a healthy diet. It's also an ideal alternative to a portion of meat or fish.
Eggs offer an interesting combination of essential nutrients:
- for only 90 kcal, a hardboiled egg offers no fewer than 9 essential nutrients: proteins, iron, zinc, selenium, phosphorus and vitamins A, D, B2 and B12;
- eggs are also rich in proteins which are crucial for the body;
- yet another advantage of eggs is that they are one of the few foods rich in vitamin D, a nutrient lacking from the diets of many in Western countries.
