Some more on EGGS !


Did you know 
EGGS are incredibly rich in vitamins. A single egg contains every vitamin except vitamin C, though these nutrients are distributed differently between the yolk and the white.

EGGS also contain high amounts of phosphorus, calcium, and potassium and carry all of the essential trace elements, including copper, iron, magnesium, manganese, selenium, and zinc. 

EGGS, after breast milk, are the best source of high-quality protein for humans.

Four Practical Tips
1. Make eggs part of a healthy breakfast.
Eating a breakfast of eggs, pancakes, syrup, juice, and sausage will have a much different nutritional profile than, say, a hard-boiled egg on top of a green salad with fresh smoked salmon. Your best bet is to keep eggs as part of a low glycemic meal, without refined carbohydrates and sugars that will likely raise glucose and insulin.

2. Choose your cooking method wisely.
Frying an egg in oil affects the health of that meal. Avoid processed seed oils like canola or safflower oils, which have damaging linoleic acids, and favour minimally processed oils like olive oil, coconut oil, or avocado oil. If you use animal fats like butter or lard, try to use products from grass-fed butter and pasture-raised animals.

3. Go for poached or soft boiled.
Some research suggests that cooking the egg whites while leaving the yolk essentially raw preserves the most nutritional value while still allowing the cooking process to increase the bioavailability of its proteins and kill any pathogenic bacteria.

4. Buy quality.
Pasture-raised hens produce higher-quality, more nutritious eggs and support more sustainable farming and environmental practices.

I LOVE eggs...but the yolks hate my stomach. I often have just egg whites and I usually scramble them and add them to Mexican dinners!

Practical Parsimony said...

For one of my breakfasts I have two or three scrambled eggs (depending on their size), scrambled in butter and a glass of 2% milk. This has kept me full for about 4 or 5 hours. And, my blood sugar is stable. I also love boiled eggs, alone, not with other food. They are best warm and with pea-sized bit of butter, no salt. I took them as part of my lunch when I was in elementary school. My mother fed us well.
