Sounds good. Gotta go! Boy, aren't we busy people. Let's make sure to (try) to get some quiet, restful, peaceful time to ourselves...whatever that is!

Hospitals are terrific for traumatic care; for acute care. They do a really, really good job in saving lives when it’s a sudden bleeding emergency. But in terms of chronic care, they’re terrible; (that is) in terms of the illnesses that most people have, endure, that cost the most money, that last the longest and ultimately die from. -Dr. Andrew Saul

I didn't have time to read this post when you first put it up, Ani - and I'm sure glad I saved it! Y'all crack me up! (No pun intended... it did start as a post on eggs, right?)

I don't know that I have anything wise to offer, but I am really thankful for everyone's participation on these boards. And now I want to have eggs and whole wheat toast for lunch!

I'm just saying... Kelley

Really Laura, I'm with Blackandi there. One of my big cheat foods (and I don't feel guilty about it...not much...urp!) is crusty French or Italian or my own home made artisan-style bread made with...squint your eyes...frown your mouth...white flour. Unbleached, organic only because it's a bit less in the toxic chemical department and it also has a warmer, clearer flavor.
Pththththpppppththth!!! and so there!

Want the recipe?

Wait...I bet Laura was talking about that soft, plasticky stuff that comes in plastic wrappers in the supermarket sometimes labeled "Wonder". You press it between your fingers and it's thinner than paper. I wouldn't feed it to my dog; no way! Is that what you were talking about Laura? The jelly just soaks through. I remember seeing other kids at school with sandwiches that had purple sides. Remember that?!

Well, BLACKANDI, not all you said is true. Yes, lumping potatoes with white flour is silly. Potatoes, even though they are up there in the glycemic division 'cuz of all that starch, are still, real, whole food and have nutritional value when gently prepared (not at high heat!). White flour and white rice are NOT whole foods. They've been cut up pretty badly and heated and had chemicals applied to them; YUCK! No Good! Whole grain pastas are available as are whole grain breads; those are the ones to stick to.

And, even eating too much whole grains can cause a craving for them that could be unhealthy. Remember, "moderation" means nothing when you are considering eating a "little" junky foods once in a while. "Moderation" means not being out of balance with even healthy foods. I could live on organic whole wheat bread and organic, natural peanut butter (with peaches on the side!). If I did that I wouldn't be balanced; I wouldn't be eating in moderation even though what I was eating was very good for me. We all need to eat smaller amounts of a lot of different foods. I need to do the same!!! Lord knows my weaknesses!

I hope I'm making sense. Just want all you Sparkers to know about the REAL food we were meant to eat. Most of the diseases we see today are NOT caused by eating fat or eggs or whole dairy products. These diseases are caused by eating manufactured, refined, messed up food stuffs. Some young people and kids really think that "pasteurized" means that the cow lived out in the pasture!! LOL!!

Yep, just like the reputation of white rice, white bread, pasta made out of white flour and white potatoes all have a bad rep and still. The problem with the white stuff is that some of us tend to want to over eat it (cravings much?) and that's when it gets bad. I just got back into white potatoes.

I always "fry" my eggs in water. It's really poaching them but I do it in the pan; sometimes surrounded by some greens and/or other veggies.

I think you are right BLACKANDI, many people use a lot of BAD oils when cooking eggs--when cooking anything! It's just not necessary. And a little butter does not hurt anyone. That was a scare from many years ago mostly thrown out to us by the makers of shortening and margarine which ARE tremendously BAD for us.

Right here on SparkPeople I read an article about saturated fats where butter, palm oil, and coconut oil were all lumped together with margarine and shortening in a category called "bad fats". This is old, antiquated bad information. This is the kind of bad information that has hurt the reputations of a lot of good, healthy foods--getting lumped together with highly processed wrecked foods that are hurting our health.

You are absolutely right about wanting to avoid cooking anything in common, supermarket oils. I could write a bunch about how they are wrecking our health...later, another blog!!

The whole egg just doesn't taste good to me anymore. That's why I only eat egg whites. I haven't had a yolk in a long time so I grew out of it. *shrugs*

The yolk isn't bad, it's the grease, oils, butter they scramble or fry it in that is bad. And I doubt most people only eat one egg a day, it's more like three so that's where the high cholesterol problem comes into play.

That's what I think. The end. :p

I posted on another cholesterol thread, I can't remember if it was on this team. But anyways, my husband is having issues with cholesterol. His HDL was low and his LDL was slightly high. He had been eating eggs almost daily and was not exercising. His doctor prescribed daily exercise, but did not say anything about diet. My husband is very thin so does not need to lose weight.

Unfortunately he works very long hours and the consistent exercise is not happening. He has cut out eggs so it will be interesting to see how his blood work comes out next time. Supposedly some people are sensitive to dietary cholesterol so maybe his will change.

I'll try to remember to keep you updated.

Sparkeyes is right about beneficial nutrients being in the yolk. I might risk saying "very important nutrients" For me the jury is still out as to whether or not we should separate the yolk from the white as a frequent part of our diet. My question lies in wanting to know if natures balance (the amount of egg white that naturally goes with its paired yolk within the whole egg) has something for us that no amount of separation can make up for. Maybe having 3 egg whites to every yolk is an imbalance that needs to be looked at. I'm looking at it. I will continue to study this issue...when I get another moment of time...puff puff!

If you haven't read my blog on eggs I wish you would. Thanks

I don't eat eggs every day, maybe 3 times a week. When I do have them I mix 1 whole egg with 1 or 2 whites depending on how hungry I am and what else I'm having. I just think they taste better with at least one yolk. There are also beneficial nutrients in the yolk.

I think the main reason I also mix my whole egg with egg whites is the same as Didi's reason. More bang for your buck with the whites. Although, I am in no way opposed to whole eggs.
When trying to shed a few pounds, an 80 calorie egg versus a 20 calorie egg white, even if you times the egg white times four, you still get about the same calories as a whole egg, but look at all that wonderful protein!

Thanks for everyone's responses. I hope more will respond. AQUAFIT, you and Laura do the same thing by mixing in one whole egg with a couple egg whites. That's probably a lot better than going with only the whites, but I still wonder.

I'm tempted to do that too 'cuz I sure would feel more full that way...I'm still shy about it though, at least as a regular habit for my egg consumption - once in a while maybe...more study & I'll see what I do with this.

When I eat eggs I usually eat 2 egg whites and one whole egg in my scrambled or omlettes.

My problem is not with the nutrition but in feeling full. One whole egg just doesn't do it for me and three eggs does. So in an effort to have the best of both and still watch my calorie range I do both.

I have posted one small article on my Sparkpage about eggs. I plan on posting more. I finally let the egg white thing get to me to where I'm doing something about it...like studying.

Have a look at my blogs and let me hear from you. What do you think? Let's look at the information we have and where we've heard or read it.
