The British Red Lion focus on protein for British Egg Week 2019.

Eggs are an excellent source of natural protein and are also relatively cheap when compared to other high-protein foods, like meat and protein bars.

A medium-size egg contains around 6.4 grams of protein which makes up around 13% of the egg.

Whilst protein can be found in both the egg white and the yolk, the yolk actually has a higher concentration of protein than the white – but as there is more white in the egg, this means the white provides more protein overall.

So we’ve got two hero recipes for you to try;

1. Egg White Smoothie
