Eat Your Eggs

Whole eggs, including yellow (not only egg whites)

Most people know that eggs are one of the highest quality protein sources. However, most of them do not know that egg yolks are the healthiest part of the egg … that’s where almost all vitamins, minerals and antioxidants (such as lutein) are.

In fact, egg yolks contain more than 90% calcium, iron, phosphorus, zinc, thiamine, folic acid, vitamin B6 and B12, calciumfrom the egg. In addition, yolks contain ALL fat-soluble vitamins A, D, E and K, as well as all essential fatty acids. In addition, whole egg protein is more bio-available than egg whites alone because of a more balanced amino acid profile than yellows help to build.

Just be sure to choose organic farm eggs instead of normal supermarket eggs. Similar to organic beef, the nutrient content of eggs and the balance between omega-3 fatty acids and inflammatory omega-6 fatty acids (in excess) are controlled by hen diets.

Chickens that are allowed to wander freely with a more natural diet will give you healthier and nutrient-rich eggs, with a healthier fat balance compared to another type of supermarket egg (which comes from fed hens) only soy and corn and parked in “egg factories” all day).
