Milk eggs are a light and tasty dessert. Can they be integrated into a diet? Yes, provided you prepare your own milk egg to control the recipe.
The traditional milk egg is rather light
Milk eggs are compatible with most diets. They also exist in Dukan recipes or weight watchers. Only diets such as a low carb diet will tend to avoid it because milk causes an increase in blood glucose, despite its nutritional value.
1 serving of egg-milk provides on average 150 kcal, including 6 grams of protein, 18 grams of carbohydrates and 6 of fat (depending on the type of milk chosen, this proportion evolves).
By limiting the use of sugar and choosing a 0% milk, it can be an excellent light dessert in a diet. It permanently cuts hunger, satisfies the taste buds and provides ideal proteins for a balanced dietary intake.
Attention to derivatives and more caloric additions
The egg au lait is sometimes prepared as a custard to which we will add chocolate or caramel, coconut milk or soy vegan version, banana or almond and vanilla toppings. As long as it is accompanied by fresh fruits, like apples, everything remains relatively good for the line and compatible with a diet.
But in other cases, you can quickly fall back on a dessert very rich in calories, sugars and saturated fats.
In case of pregnancy and breastfeeding, it is always better to talk to your doctor about the best food alternatives.
