Brown bread, considered more nutritious than white bread, contains a lot of vitamins and minerals which are important for healthy management of your weight.
When you purchase brown bread make sure you are picking the one that is labelled whole grain. It’s part of a balanced diet: rich in vitamins B, E and K and fibre as well as proteins, carbohydrate and fat.
Fibre in whole grain brown bread helps bowel movement and keeps the blood sugar level steady. One slice of brown bread contains 15 to 20g of carbohydrate.
Egg is a super food. Both the yolk and the white are rich in vitamins, minerals, essential fatty acids and amino acids.

Egg is an essential food during pregnancy as it provides a good quantity of choline. It is good for weight management as it helps you feel full for a long period of time due to the high protein content.

Duck eggs are larger than chicken eggs and have more protein. But duck eggs are richer with high fat content and high cholesterol.
