This myth comes from the belief that eating eggs will raise our cholesterol level and we’re told cholesterol is bad for our heart.
In fact, we need cholesterol in our diet and eggs can give it to us. Organic eggs from pasture raised chickens are one of the most nutritious foods around, full of protein, vitamins, minerals and the healthy kind of fat.
Study after study has recently shown that eating cholesterol rich organic eggs has no effect on heart disease risk and in fact is heart healthy. The main concern with heart disease risk is unhealthy fat, such transfat – which you won’t find in eggs.
The key is to eat organic eggs from pasture raised chickens and the best way to serve them is soft boiled, soft poached or over easy.
Remember that eggs can be a major source of food sensitivity or allergy and it is important to know how eggs affect you.
Bottom Line: Eggs are an extremely healthy food – enjoy them!
