How much Protein is in an Egg?

Why do we need Protein?
Protein is a chain of organic compounds called amino acids. Muscles, tissue, bone, skin and blood are all made of protein, so when your body needs to repair or build new cells, it relies on protein to get the job done.
Do I need Extra Protein?
Eating a Protein rich diet can help you lose weight as it makes you feel full with less food and therefore you will not overeat.
Protein is also the building block of your muscles, therefore eating adequate amounts of protein helps you maintain your muscle mass and promotes muscle growth when you do strength training.
Eating more protein can boost your metabolism. High protein intake has been shown to significantly increase the number of calories you burn. This can amount to 80-100 more calories burned each day.
So the answer is yes you should try to incorporate more protein into your diet.

A frittata is an open faced Italian omelet that features a mix of dairy and eggs with a variety of other ingredients like meat, cheese and veggies. Think of frittata as a crustless, low-carb quiche.
A frittata is good for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Frittata, which translates to “fried” in Italian, is most popular as an egg-based classic brunch dish. While it is very similar to an omelet, crustless quiche, and Spanish tortilla, the way a frittata is cooked is what sets it apart.
A frittata can be served hot or preferably room temperature. Once cooled to room temperature, it can stand for up to an hour. A cooled frittata can be refrigerated up to 1 day. Serve cold, bring to room temperature, or reheat before serving
When properly stored, frittatas can last 3-4 days refrigerated. Frittatas make great leftovers all week long for breakfast, lunch, dinner or snacks! Slice up the frittata then transfer it in a single layer to an airtight container or stack the slices with parchment paper in between.
