Do you like eggs? If so, what's the best way to eat them?
I eat eggs in moderation. I like them best deviled. Because, I'm non-religious. No, wait, that's not right... it's because they're DELICIOUS! lol.
I was reading an article about the nutritional value of eggs. There used to be this idea that eggs were bad for you, because they have cholestrol.
And, there is still controversy around how good eggs are for you.
Some researchers say that dietary cholestrol has very little impact on blood cholestrol (less than 10%). But, there are people who react more and have higher spikes in cholestrol than others, so they need to be more diligent.
~Eggs are a good source of several minerals that can be hard to get in other foods, such as iodine and selenium. “Eggs are also one of the few foods that are naturally a good source of vitamin D., which helps build strong bones with the help of calcium,” Kanter said. But, he added, eating only egg whites doesn’t give you all the good stuff. “Nutrients found exclusively in the yolk include choline, vitamin B12, vitamin D and iron among others,” he said. Many nutritionists believe that, for healthy people, eggs’ excellent nutrition profile mitigates its cholesterol content.
For as many nutrients as they have, eggs are a relatively low-calorie food. There are just 71 calories in a large egg. There are no carbohydrates or sugars, and only 5 grams of fat (7 percent of your daily recommended intake). ~
Just for the record, a couple of hundred and some odd million years ago, mammals started out by being able to find and eat dinosaur eggs. And it looks like we're still doing it. Every Saturday morning I have cheesy eggs: something between over easy and cheese omelet.
A two-egg omelette with a slice of american for creaminess and shredded colby-jack would be my all time favorite.
If going the easy route it would be two over easy and I have a weird habit of eating the whites first and then scooping the yolk up and eating it whole.
I love eggs! Yes, high dietary cholesterol, but the verdict is sort of out on the impact of that. Albumin is a complete protein. Eggs are very low cark and can be prepared low fat.
My fave way to eat them: poached, soft, over lightly buttered rye toast.
Quiches, custards, and omlettes are also the bomb!
When I underwent radiation the nutritionist recommended eggs for the protein I couldn't get down.
A hard boiled egg can get past most upset stomachs. (oddly).
And I still love them over easy - and egg salad - and egg drop soup (I was taught to let it poach as whole as possible). Mmn....
When we were kids - and sick - my Mom would make us Eggnog with Milk and raw eggs(in the blender). Also some vanilla extract - sugar and various spices. (Cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, and ginger - any of those). Never got sick from it. Oh and sometimes some vanilla ice cream.
And it goes well with a sore throat.
Also protein. Good stuff for healing.
Scrambled for life! But I dunno, I've eaten eggs in cookie dough for as long as I remember, and aside from crippling depression I'm just great!
But yeah, eggs are very low calorie but I don't really find them that filling by themselves. If you do though, that's great because they're pretty cheap!
I stopped eating eggs for quite a long time (or ate them sparingly) due to their bad press, but started eating them again in earnest after new reports came out. I boil up a half dozen or so and snake on them. I also use cooking spray for over-easy eggs. I eat only eggs from cage free hens, though.
i'd like to get two good laying hens and that'd be all i need.... i had a good chicken a while back that would lay one a day.. i only eat eggs a couple times a week and always had enough to scramble. my dogs killed it dammit!.. so now when i get eggs, i'll just boil like 6-8 at a time and eat those over a couple days. i think what i like best is whipping them up with some heavy cream and cheese and scramble them in bacon grease... maybe make some toast and have an egg sandwich.
