Easy Egg Recipe, with how to video…
The Egg-ceptional Super Food
Did you know that an egg contains every single nutrient (most in micro amounts) that the human body needs to function? Of course when fertilized it does produce life, a chicken life, so you have to imagine that it is full of life giving nutrients. An egg is loaded with B12, B2, Vitamin A, B5, Omega 3 fatty acids and Selenium. You get about 6 grams of protein, 5 grams of fat and 212 mg of cholesterol in an egg. Whoa…you might be thinking, 212 mg of cholesterol, isn’t that a lot? Yep, that’s right. Did you know that every cell in your body has cholesterol in it? In fact your liver produces it every single day if you are not getting enough in your diet. So you need cholesterol to survive. Getting it from food sources, the way the body likes, prevents it from getting out of balance and therefore having “high” or out of balance cholesterol. Now that is a very laymens way of explaining it, but it is essentially what happens. So the egg is a great way to get cholesterol naturally along with other essential nutrients. There are many studies by big name sources that state there is no correlation between eating eggs and heart disease. So eat your eggs, they really are the perfect food!
