Eggs – Better than their rep

 

I am thrilled to finally see an article on the positive benefits of eggs. They have gotten a bad rap lately, for years now. This puzzled me, as I thought they were an excellent source of protein that was whole and still in its natural state. In other words, no processing. How could that be bad? In the Chatelaine blog it states they do have cholesterol but it is in fact some of the other bad things we eat that cause our cholesterol levels to rise. And they may actually benefit those with high cholesterol due to omega fats, protein and antioxidants. Eggs are low in fat, less than 1 gram and they have only 70 calories each. They also have vitamin D, keep your appetite in check and reduce inflammation, according the Chatelaine.  All good.
