Chicken egg tapping or chocolate egg hunting? 10 reasons to eat more eggs for your health

Eggs - a pure vitamin and mineral bomb that should not be missed not just at Easter, but also at the daily breakfast table. Eggs are real powerhouses with many valuable nutrients. They are rich in vitamins A, B2, B12, D and folic acid, as well as phosphorus, selenium, iron, zinc and choline. Almost all the proteins and amino acids contained in eggs can be converted and absorbed. And now comes the surprise: egg yolk contains more proteins than the protein itself! Yup, egg yolk consists of about 50% water, 32% fat and 15% proteins. Liquid egg white, on the other hand, is about 90% water and only 10% protein. #sorrynotsorry but so much for the trends of eating only egg white omelette with leeks and spinach on the weekend. Oh yeah, and one thing right up front: the information in this blog post refers exclusively to the chicken eggs and NOT the chocolate eggs.

Post pandemic fitness routine: How the 6 Minute Workout buys you time

The pandemic has shown us that health and social relationships matter most. And the lockdown has changed the way we live (at least for a while) and the way we perceive time. When gyms closed and fitness classes were canceled, we had to figure out how to exercise at home. Turns out, 3-4 hours of sweat sessions every week shaking that bootie are not just unnecessary but have also been robbing our time. So did the daily commute. We learned that the popular workout routines varying from yoga, pilates, spinning, body pump, to body boost can be done from home. Alone these apps can get you the needed amount of physical and mental fitness. Except for the 6 Minute high intensity workout performed on our “time machine”. Time, because it literally buys you time and improves your quality of life.

Protein shakes for muscle growth: hype or hack?

I must confess: the creamy shake that tastes like roasted pistachio, salty caramel, or Swiss chocolate is also my favorite post-workout snack. Whether it's a healthy choice is another question.
