Eggs make a great pre and post exercise meal. Each egg contains about 7 grams of complete and readily absorbable protein, perfect for aerobic metabolism and assisting in speedy recoveries. Eggs also have a high amount of easily absorbed iron which helps prevent iron deficiency anemia and oxygenate the muscles during workouts. Eggs also pack a potent anti-oxidant mix including selenium, vitamin A, lutein and zeaxanthin, that aid in muscle recovery. Additionally, eggs contain vitamin D which promotes bone health as well as vitamin B-12 which assists iron in maintaining blood cell health.
