Eggs: Eat the yolk too!

Here’s what I get from eating my eggs scrambled – yolks and all – Omega-3 fatty acids, essential amino acids, vitamins D and E, and a host of B vitamins, and the minerals calcium, potassium, and iron.

Eating egg yolks doesn’t bother me and I believe the yolk is good for your health.  Cholesterol intake from egg yolk does no harm! Over half of all heart attacks occur in people with normal cholesterol levels. And about half of all heart disease patients have normal LDL levels. A high cholesterol meal increases oxidative stress. Your vey own digestive enzymes convert egg proteins into peptides. And those peptides have a powerful antioxidant activity.
Go enjoy!
