As a strict vegetarian and wannabe vegan, I don’t normally consume a lot of eggs. Likewise, in a perfect vegan world, I would not opt for a portion of healthy fish, as I now do, for the excellent protein and other nutritional benefits.
But as with adding fish as a source of good protein, while continually trying to reduce my carbohydrates, I have also started to add a few eggs to my diet.
Eggs, you say?
But aren’t eggs unhealthy for you? Loaded with fats and cholesterol? One of the worst things one can ingest?
Ummm, actually, think again.
Eggs for years have been getting a bad rap. They are not only an excellent source of healthy proteins and fats, but even the amounts of bad cholesterol are grossly over exaggerated.
If loving eggs is wrong, then I don’t wanna be right…
Besides tasting awesome, as the above video can attest, eggs also have these healthy benefits:
- High in choline, an anti-inflammatory, thathelps reduce risks for heart disease, osteoporosis, diabetes, and Alzheimer’s
- Help promote weight loss
- May actually improve your cholesterol profile
- Reduce the risk of blood clots
- Protect against cataracts
- Are loaded with vitamins, protein, selenium andiodine
- While low in calories
Besides enjoying fried in a sandwich, eggs can be eaten in myriad ways: omelets, scrambled, boiled and poached. Eggs also enhance many types of baked goods and a variety of meals.
For years eggs have been getting bad press due to their high fat and cholesterol content. But as more research and results have been revealed, eggs just may be healthier than you ever imagined.
And they make one heck of a fried egg sandwich.
Think about it.
Until next time…
