How Healthy is an Egg?
Are eggs healthy for you?
This question has been around for centuries, and it seems to me, the answer changes almost every year!
So what is the right answer?
YES, EGGS ARE IN FACT GOOD FOR YOU!
1 large egg has only 70 calories, 6 grams of protein, 14 essential nutrients and naturally contains Vitamin D! The cholesterol in an egg is in fact 18% lower than originally thought.
Which is better, brown eggs or white eggs?
The shell color of an egg has no effect on the taste, it has to do with the hen who laid it! The color of the yolk has to do with what type of feed was fed to the hen and what breed of hen it is. In real life, different breeds of hens, have yolks varying in color.
Are the yolks healthy?
Yes, eating one or two whole eggs a day will not make your cholesterol sky rocket. 43% of an eggs protein is found in the yolk! Yolks are chalked full of vitamins, minerals, protein and fat. All of which should be made part of a healthy diet.
So get crackin' and eat an egg today!
