Love that term "dippy". It really fits. I would rather have the white of an egg slightly under done than take a chance on taking any "dippy-ness" out of the yolk!

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 love eggs! Especially over easy. I have eggs in a basket almost every morning, nice and dippy in the middle. Yum!

I have to go on a low iodine diet next week for a medical test. It does not allow eggs, or a whole lot of other things...boo hoo! The good news is it has a list of vegetables that are allowed, and they have to be fresh! :) All fresh friut is allowed also, so I will be going vegan for two weeks. Vegan and bland.

Gently poached is the second healthiest way that I know to have an egg and my fav. Raw is best for sure. The only way I can eat one is in an eggnog and that's very yummy

Nature said it first and now scientific research has caught up with the truth that the yolk is important for our health. Commercially packaged egg whites are just another profit-making scheme by food manufacturers.

Eat whole foods; nature knows best!

My dietician says eggs are good to eat, (including the yolk) and I trust her. The trick is making them tasty without adding a bunch of fat :) I like them hard boiled best.

That article is just too funny. Love to watch the govt try to cover up after all their lies.

...and frequently blue and many shades of brown and tan. At least my neighbor's chicken eggs (that I buy from her) are multi-colored and you are right about all different sizes. I always weigh mine before using them in a recipe where the amount of egg is important. 2 oz is a "Large". And I reach for the biggest ones for poaching for myself for breakfast.

I will only eat eggs from my neighbor's chickens, and I eat LOTS of 'em. I cannot eat the uniformly sized white ones from the grocery store anymore, having discovered the super-fresh brown ones - gimme the ones form the chickens down the road, whose names are familiar and whose diet I know, and I am real happy eating eggs! And the eggs are NOT all the same size. Adn they are a beautiful brown. The End.

I love farm fresh eggs (we have our own chickens) and am not afraid to eat the yolk, either! I consider it an excellent source of protein.

Seize the day :o)

Here's an article from Jenny Thompson of the Health Sciences Institute about eggs:

emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
USDA officials are either delusional or they're liars. In either case, they've got a whopper they're trying to sell us: Eggs have suddenly become nutritious.

According to the USDA, changes in chicken feed account for a boost in the vitamin D content of eggs.

Riiiight. For eons, the egg wasn't nutritionally sound. It took the genius of 21st century factory farmers to perfect the imperfect egg. So basically, USDA officials seem to think they know more about balance and nutrition than God.

That sounds a lot like what you find on the floor of the chicken coop.

The USDA also claims that eggs are safer to eat now because they contain less cholesterol. This is wonderful news in the Cholesterol Pretend World where I guess someone still believes the fantasy that dietary cholesterol is some kind of poison.

----------------------------------------
-------------------
Outside the cocoon
----------------------------------------
-------------------

This sudden USDA egg enlightenment comes four full years after the British Heart Foundation (BHF) acknowledged new evidence about dietary cholesterol in eggs. Previously, the BHF had advised against eating more than three eggs per week.

Victoria Taylor--a BHF dietician--told the BBC: "There is cholesterol present in eggs but this does not usually make a great contribution to your level of blood cholesterol."

Did you get that, USDA? This is an important message from the world outside your fantasy cocoon: That alleged drop in egg cholesterol doesn't even matter!

More recently, University of Surrey researchers evaluated a variety of egg nutrition studies and found that the misconception that eggs raise cholesterol levels is based on outdated evidence.

Professor Bruce Griffin of the Surrey team told the BBC that the idea that egg intake is linked to high cholesterol and heart disease "must be corrected."

So how in the world did eggs get such a bad rap in the first place?

Dr. Spreen explains: "The studies on cholesterol/eggs and heart disease were done using POWDERED eggs! Primarily the problem has always been OXIDIZED cholesterol--cholesterol heated and exposed to air for an extended period...not an issue in a real egg, where the yolk sac insulates the cholesterol from oxidation."

The Surrey researchers and Dr. Spreen are also in complete agreement about the egg's effect on cholesterol levels. He notes that a very small percentage of the population has familial hypercholesterolemia (an inherited disorder of high LDL cholesterol), and those patients need to curb dietary cholesterol intake.

Otherwise, Dr. Spreen argues: "There is no correlation between oral intake of cholesterol and serum levels (I also firmly believe there's no connection between serum levels and heart disease, but that's an argument for another time)."

And here's the real kicker: "If you never eat cholesterol your body will manufacture it (or you die), and the 'manufactured' variety is more readily deposited in vessel walls.

"Eggs are wonderful food, always have been, and that includes the yolk (rare good source of sulfur)."

In addition to sulfur, eggs provide plenty of protein, essential amino acids, vitamins B, D, A, and riboflavin, and minerals, including calcium, potassium, and iron.

Put that on your breakfast plate and eat it!
