Poor old misunderstood eggs are in again! You can eat them and not be worried about your natural health being compromised. If you eat eggs sensibly (and I hope you’ll eat everything sensibly and in moderation, they won’t raise your cholesterol. Now don’t get me wrong, eggs are high in cholesterol. The average egg contains 212 milligrams, however only a tiny amount of that cholesterol from the egg actually passes into the blood.
If you’re looking to be healthy, and of course I know you are, what you need to watch out for are saturated and trans fats in your diet, as they are so much more unhealthy and really do adversely increase the amount of cholesterol in your blood – boo!
Eggs, on the other hand, are a great source of protein, with about 5.5 grams of it per little egg. Eggs also have selenium, Vitamin D, and Vitamin B12, as well as choline, which is very important for gene regulation, brain function, and heart health. Eggs contain those super phytochemicals such as lutein and zeaxanthin, which are carotenoids that help to reduce the risk of age-related eye diseases like cataracts and macular degeneration.
Eating breakfast is one of the most important ways not only to keep up your natural health, but also to help you lose weight. So why not get up in the morning and eat a healthy egg!
