Happy Easter – EGGS

People have eaten eggs for thousands of years.

𝐄𝐠𝐠 𝐧𝐮𝐭𝐫𝐢𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧:

There is egg white, or albumen, which is consisted of water and pure protein. Proteins consist of amino acids which are the building blocks of life. The proteins of the human body are made of different combinations of 20 amino acids.Eggs have 18 of these amino acids, among which are all 9 essential amino acids. The egg is, therefore, number 1 when it comes to protein value. Actually, eggs are such good sources of protein that all other sources are compared to eggs.

Many recent studies have shown that blaming eggs for high blood cholesterol was incorrect. According to www.medicalnewstoday.com, there are many other factors that affect cholesterol levels, while egg yolk actually has a greater contribution to health. Aside from the proteins, the yolk is a source of vitamins, minerals and lipids. The mineral profile of the yolk looks like this – iron, phosphorous, calcium, thiamine, zinc, B6, B12, folate, and pantothenic acid. Regarding vitamins, there are A, D, E, and K.

Ondrej’s TIP:
HOW TO COOK EGGS FOR MAXIMUM NUTRITION:

1. SOFT BOILED

2. POACHED

3. SUNNY SIDE UP

Well, good question. Best option is soft boiled, hard-boiled eggs are hard to digest. Frying and mixing proteins and fats cause oxidation/inflammatory .

approx. just 8% choline loss from hard boiled to fresh. The explanation for the fried having more choline is due to water loss, thus a slight concentration of egg product.

content per 100g of product :

raw egg yolk as 680mg
egg, whole, cooked, fried as 270mg
egg, whole, cooked, hard boiled 250mg
egg, whole, fresh 250mg

Note: don’t eat raw eggs, carton egg whites are ok.

VEGAN OPTION:
Plant-Bases egg replacement

( the neat egg) chia seed and garbanzo beans)
