For the first six months of your life you survived solely on your mothers breast milk. The breast milk contained enough protein to meet your growing needs.
According to an article on runners world magazine, an Egg is as good as breast milk.
“Egg protein is the most complete food protein short of human breast milk, which means the protein in eggs contains all the crucial amino acids your hard-working muscles need to promote recovery.”
An egg will give you;
- Vitamin K – Vital for healthy bones
- Choline – brain nutrient that aids memory (You will never forget your route)
- Leutin – A pigment needed for healthy eyes (For those who love running at night)
