They’ve been the subject of a lot of scrutiny and debate for the last decade or so. Are they good for us or not? Do the health benefits outweigh the concerns?
Let’s take a moment to break this down.
The primary focus of folks’ dietary concern over eggs is the amount of cholesterol they contain. And make no mistake, that’s a reasonable concern if your doctor has alerted you to pre-existing high cholesterol levels.
However, a 2013 study published in BMJ concluded that eating an egg a day did not increase the risk of heart attack or stroke in healthy people.
Additionally, eggs have long been revered for being rich in protein, Vitamin B, Iodine, and generally more vitamins and minerals than your average Centrum Silver tablet.
With that in mind, let’s have a look at some delicious egg recipes designed to kick start a healthy day of eating.
