Did you know that eggs are GOOD for you? For so many years eggs got a bad wrap because we assumed that eating eggs would increase the cholesterol in your body. It is simply not true. Egg whites actually have an enzyme called lysozyme. It serves as an antimicrobial agent in foods. Which means it breaks down and destroys bacteria. Isn't that AMAZING! Not only are the egg whites good for you but egg yolks are rich in folate and vitamin B12. Egg yolks contain the antioxidants lutein and zeaxanthine, which help protect the eyes from age-related macular degeneration. The yolk is also high in tryptophan and tyrosine, and amino acids that help prevent heart disease. Soooo feel free to eat eggs. They are an excellent source of protein and many other nutrients.
How do you like your eggs done?
