Free-range eggs contain up to a third less cholesterol than conventional supermarket eggs. A standard egg contains an average of 423 milligrams of cholesterol, while free-range eggs contain an average of 277 milligrams. If cholesterol is a concern for you, free-range eggs are a smart choice.
With only 72 calories in a single free-range egg, you can fill up with a hearty, healthy scramble at breakfast without wrecking your MyFitnessPal numbers before you leave for work.
And you’ll stay full until lunch, thanks to the one-two punch of protein and healthy fats that eggs offer.
