When you’re on a low carb diet or working with our weight loss management program, one of the best ways to stay healthy is to incorporate lots of lean protein into your diet. An easy way to do this is to eat lots of eggs! They are considered a superfood and nutritional powerhouse by many—and for good reason. Eggs are a complete protein, which means they contain all nine of the essential amino acids that our bodies need to function properly. They are also excellent sources of iron, copper, selenium and zinc, as well as vitamins B2, B6, B12 and D.
Since breakfast is the most important meal of the day, it’s important to eat something healthy—and eggs are the perfect choice. Here are three ways to incorporate eggs into your morning that are fast, easy and convenient.

1. Hard-boiled. Couple a hard-boiled egg or two with a whole wheat or multigrain flatbread. Spread a light amount of cream cheese on the flatbread and top with some berries for an antioxidant and protein packed breakfast.
2. Scrambled. This classic take on eggs is fast and easy but can be very delicious when done right. Mix in your favorite veggies or top with salsa, Sriracha or your favorite hot sauce for a spicy boost to your metabolism. Pair with a half a grapefruit, apple, banana or slice of low-carb toast such as Ezekiel’s sprouted grain bread.
3. Omelet. If you pack an omelet with some antioxidant- and fiber-rich veggies, you are destined to stay full for hours and will reap an array of healthy benefits. Add in everything from tomatoes, onions and spinach to mushrooms, bell peppers, scallions and avocado. Have a piece of fruit as your side and you’ve got a well-balanced breakfast to enjoy.
Have a cup of green or white tea with your entrée to up the antioxidant ante even more.
