What came first the chicken or the egg? We may never know, but we do know there are many reasons to make eggs an essential part of your diet.

Both the white and yolk of an egg are rich in nutrients, including proteins, vitamins and minerals.
The yolk also contains cholesterol, fat-soluble vitamins (such as vitamins D and E) and essential fatty acids.
Eggs are also an important and versatile ingredient for cooking, as their particular chemical make-up is literally the glue of many important baking reactions.
Nutritional highlights

Eggs are a very good source of inexpensive, high-quality protein. More than half the protein of an egg is found in the egg white, which also includes vitamin B2 and lower amounts of fat than the yolk.

I was sipping pomegranate wine (Organic; Sulfur-Free) From pomegranates growing right there!!! Not too sweet; with a tang. Yummmmm
As a chef and a big time #foodie: #Turkey is a paradise for #foodies- The variety, diversity, freshness (From agriculture to seafood) ... Unmatched. And I have traveled through 36 countries.
