Boiled egg - the option you need to try and why

We've talked in a previous blog about the data that sometimes passes by lust and taste, and focuses on figures. We take them into account when it comes to desserts, but sometimes even when choosing the ingredients for salads, we create at Salad Box.


Because eggs sometimes have a negative reputation when it comes to diet, let us first answer the questions for those worried about this.

Yolk - provides 155 calories per gram, derived from 12.6 g protein and 10.6 g of fat. And it is rich in vitamin B12 and Selenium.
