To egg or NOT to egg is a question that I am often asked by clients! The first thing I want to say is that each individual is different, and that decision is between you and your doctor if you are leaving out any food specifically from the diet. EGGS are easy to prep, are proven to boost brain nutrients, and are rich in antioxidants and minerals. They also increase satiety when dieting.
Here are (some) HARD facts:
WHOLE EGGS include:
10% protein, 3.6 g fat, 47% cholesterol, 4% iron and 3% zinc
EGG WHITES include:
7% protein, zero fat, zero cholesterol, zero iron, and zero zinc
There is much more to know about EGGS! Choose pasture raised eggs, speak with your physician on how many yolks a week YOU would benefit or not benefit from, and get crackin!!!
