One large egg also contains only 72 calories, providing a lot of nutrition in a small caloric package. Eggs are also rich in nutrients including biotin (which helps you convert food into usable energy), choline (an essential micronutrient involved in metabolism, among other functions), vitamin A (important for the immune system) and lutein and zeaxanthin (antioxidants that help protect your body from free radicals), says registered dietitian Ryan Maciel. “Eggs are also one of the only food...
