Everyone has heard it. “I’ll take the veggie omelet, with whole grain toast oh and ahh can I just have egg whites in my omelet?!”….Stop right there. For years, people have been avoiding yolks like the plague. But are they as really bad as everyone has hyped them up to be?
Here is the deal…
Egg Whites: less calories, less fat, less cholesterol, BUTTTTTTTTTT there is also LESS nutrients!!!
Egg Yolks: Vitamin A, Vitamin D, B-12, Calcium, Omega-3s (metabolism booster!), and the list goes on!
Did you know 2 eggs = the antioxidant capacity of an apple?? When people say egg yolks are “bad because of high cholesterol and fat content” they are wrong. The fact is eating a little more dietary cholesterol does not increase cholesterol levels AND it is not as important of a risk factor for cardiovascular disease like we use to think.
