We would like to make a bold statement and say that ‘an egg is the best survival food.
Here’s why we say so:
An egg is a highly nutritious foodstuff. It is loaded with most of the important nutrients that your body needs to survive. These nutrients include complete, and high quality proteins that are easily absorbed by your body.
The white of an egg contains over 40 different kinds of proteins and while the yolk contains proteins as well, it ALSO contains the necessary omega-3 fats, vitamins A, D and E.
To put this in a nutshell, or should we say “an EGG shell” ... the egg is right up there with the best, if not THE best survival food when it comes to essential food sustenance.

In addition to being extremely nutritious, eggs purportedly have more than 100 uses. We tend to think that’s a lowball estimate.
