R.I.B Kitchen : Japanese style Hot Spring Eggs

For people who always consider on loosing weight like me, eating more eggs is a fantastic way to health boost.

4 Reasons to eat eggs

  • Get your vitamins : Vitamin B2, Vitamin B12, Vitamin A, and Vitamin E.

  • Boost your weight loss

For those who think of eggs as "fattening" or "unhealthy" - a study carried out by the Rochester Center for Obesity Research found that eating eggs for breakfast helps limit the calories intake by more than 400 calories a day. That means you could lose 1kg or more per month. Although eggs contain choleterol, they are "dietary cholesterol", different from the "blood cholesterol". Despite the health recommendations of the past, there's no evidence that eating eggs will increase your blood cholesterol level.
  • Take in essential minerals : Iron (Important for women), Zinc and Phosphorus.
  • Prevent breast cancer
(From Google)
Research by Harvard University in 2003 found that eating eggs as an adolescent could help prevent breast cancer as an adult. In 2005, another study showed that women eating at least six eggs per week had a 44 percent lower risk of developing breast cancer than women who ate two or fewer eggs each week.

In April 2008, researchers from the University of North Carolina found that choline (present in egg yolks) can reduce the risk of breast cancer by 24 percent. An egg yolk contains 125.5 milligrams of choline, about a quarter of the recommended daily intake, so just two poached eggs for breakfast provides half your choline for the day.

Today, I am going to show you how to cook Hot Spring Eggs!
