Eggs..in or out?

by

As chickens themselves phase in and out of fashion, so does the egg. Many hold on to the notion of eggs as unhealthy. We just checked the Harvard School of Public Health Nutrition Source to see what they had to say about eggs. “A solid body of research shows that for most people, cholesterol in food has a much smaller effect on blood levels of total cholesterol and harmful LDL cholesterol than does the mix of fats in the diet. Recent research has shown that moderate egg consumption—up to one a day—does not increase heart disease risk in healthy individuals and can be part of a healthy diet.” Now to find out more about carotenoids, which are undoubtably higher in eggs of chickens eating lots of fruits, vegetables, and grasses, like ours do. Carotenoids can be antioxidants, and we all like the sound of the word ‘anti-oxidant’.
