Eggs 101

Don’t let anyone dissuade you from eating eggs. Glorious, large amounts, piles, loads of eggs (I love eggs as you might guess). They are one of the most nutritional foods on the planet and please – no egg-white omelettes! Taking out the yolk is sacrilege! You’re then interfering with a whole food. Eat those scrummy yolks! Here are some of the reasons you won’t want to discard those golden yolks.

  • HALF of all the protein in an egg (70g) is in the yolk
  • The yolk carries almost all the vitamins and minerals (in fact they have EVERY vitamin and mineral other than vitamin C)
  • It’s a very powerful source of lutein, which keeps both your eyes and heart in good health – yes your HEART – don’t listen to those who say eggs adversely affect the heart – it’s all porkies! They are heart-healthy so eat lots of them.
  • Eggs are one of the very few foods containing vitamin D3, something almost everyone is short of today.

Eggs, butter, bacon and collagen coffee …. imagine a world without them? No, I can’t… I just can’t!

Ok, I’m off to make myself a big bowl of scrambled eggs, WITH the yolks and a cuppa organic espresso with 2 giant heaped tablespoons of collagen (which you can get from my online store here).
