Furthermore, the egg group ate fewer calories at lunch, suggesting that this dish may support weight management (3Trusted Source).

That said, try to limit your intake of highly processed breakfast items that are commonly paired with eggs, such as breakfast sausages and bacon. Instead, eat your eggs with other nutritious foods, such as whole grain toast, whole fruit, or sautéed vegetables.
