My Egg Obsession

Scrambled, poached, over easy, hard boiled, tossed into salads, floating in ramen… eggs can be added to any meal!

The myth that eggs cause high cholesterol has been debunked (your body makes more cholesterol from saturated fats, but the 200mg cholesterol in an egg won’t cause a corresponding spike in blood lipids), and the benefits of eggs are clear:

  • Protein! Eggs are one of the few non-meat items that provide all of the amino acids you need in your diet, and though the egg whites are known for this protein-punch, egg yolks also provide the nutrient.
  • Choline- this important nutrient is needed for brain health and neural development.
  • Lutein- a type of carotenoid that protects eye health
