I like boiled eggs but my husband doesn’t. Well, he doesn’t know what he’s missing. Egg is full of nutrients and proteins which are good for body building. Eggs are naturally rich in vitamin B12, vitamin B2 (riboflavin) and vitamin D. They also contain vitamin A and a number of other B vitamins including folate, pantothenic acid, biotin and choline. Eggs also contain essential minerals and trace elements, including phosphorus, iodine and selenium.

Below are the nutritional value of one egg.
