Scrambled eggs are a nutritious choice, offering high-quality protein, essential amino acids, and various vitamins and minerals, including vitamin B12, choline, and selenium. They support muscle function, brain health, and immune function. Eggs are also rich in antioxidants like lutein and zeaxanthin, which promote eye health. However, their nutritional profile can be affected by cooking methods, so using minimal added fats and reducing excessive salt can enhance their health benefits. Consumed in moderation, scrambled eggs are a versatile and satisfying addition to a balanced diet, providing essential nutrients and energy.
