An Egg a Day Keeps the Doc Away? Maybe! Learn the Health Benefits of Eggs!

Our beloved eggs! Did you know at one time a chef had 100 pleats in her toque to signify the 100 ways she knew how to prepare eggs? Egg cookery is an important part of our cumulative culinary history – and eggs are so delicious. The health and fitness world has tagged eggs a taboo food for decades, since they are high in cholesterol, but the science now suggests that they might not be as unhealthy as once thought.

Recent egg studies add to the shift in thinking about the health benefits of eggs and of cholesterol and fat in the diet in general. They also have shown that eating foods high in cholesterol does not necessarily lead to unhealthy cholesterol levels that put the heart at risk. And while eggs may be high in total cholesterol, much of that is due to their high HDL, or good cholesterol. HDL can combat the process of atherosclerosis – buildup of fat in blood vessel walls – and therefore lower the risk of heart disease.

So, have your egg – and enjoy them, too! There’s at least 100 ways to love an egg!
