New Guidelines Have Eggs Back on Your Menu!

The yolks on you…

All of the fat-soluble vitamins (A, D, E, and K) are found in the egg yolk. Egg yolk is one of the few foods naturally containing vitamin D, so if you don’t want to spend any time in the sun, eat eggs to increase your D levels. Including eggs in your food plan is better than taking a good multi-vitamin due to the high nutrient level. The long-chain essential fatty acids (EFA) found in eggs are key. Eggs contain omega-3 fatty acid DHAfor the brain and retinal function, but in addition, eggs have arachidonic acid (omega-6) , which is required for healthy skin, hair, libido, reproduction, growth and response to injury. (Fish and cod liver oils do not contain arachidonic acid, though they are higher in DHA.) Pastured eggs, from chickens free to forage for grass and insects, contain up to 20 times more healthy omega-3 fatty acids than factory hens.

So make egg salad or deviled eggs for Easter and enjoy!
