Egg Yolks are good

Wednesday, October 02, 2013

emoticon Egg yolks are good! emoticon

Nutrients in a yolk: Egg yolks are jam packed with fat soluble nutrients these include: Vitamins A, D, E, K and carotenoids. These help you boost your immune system, keep your bones, teeth, and skin healthy, reduce the effects of diabetes, and help you reduce the risk of cancer.

Also: Yolks have loads of Zinc, Calcium, Folate and vitamin B12. All of which are super important for you.

But, but, but may say......" eggs are full of cholesterol!"
Cholesterol is needed in the body as it is the building block of hormones, also cholesterol helps repair damaged cells in the body. Cholesterol that comes from processed, super fatty food is bad for you, so donít go out and eat tons of fried food. When it comes from this incredible egg it is not!

Additionally: Eating only egg whites can cause a biotin deficiency, biotin is the vitamin that gives us strong nails and beautiful hair!

In conclusion: EAT THE WHOLE EGG. It is only 70 calories for one XL egg. It is amazing for you. Tastes great. Now I am not saying go make yourself 20 eggs to make up for your lack of yolky days, but do not be afraid to incorporate into your diet.

    Hmmmm. That was good to know. I usually add a whole egg and an extra egg white to up the protein without upping the fat, but I may have to rethink this again.

but there are a lot of people that don't realize they have egg sensitivity and eating them gives them gastric issues. They think the gass and bloating is whateveer and often it is eggs.

    Thanks for the suggestion! Hard boiled eggs would be a great lunch or snack. I will cook some up this weekend.
