Egg yolks are bad for my cholesterol right? Well no, you’re very much mistaken! It is in fact the egg yolks themselves which actually contain all the healthy, fatty acids within the egg. It is a source of nutritional goodness, NOT the cholesterol filled beast, which media have claimed it to be.
Yes your right! When compared to other foods, egg yolks may have higher levels of cholesterol, but the real problem is with saturated fats and trans fats. Like many of us, when you throw away the egg yolk and eat only the white, you’re completely missing out on the awesome benefits of healthy fatty acids, such as the Omega-3. Whole eggs also contain many B vitamins and nutrients — B6, B12, folate, plus many more, all backed up with studies, to help prevent heart disease.
Chris’s top tips: * Instead of cooking your eggs in chemical riddled sprays, try heating up a bit of coconut oil in a hot frying pan when scrambling or making an omelette/fried egg. * In a hurry? Coat a mug with coconut oil break the eggs and whisk. Place the mug in the microwave for a few minutes (check to make sure the eggs are cooked through) and hey ho you have a quick and easy breakfast when you’re on the go. BOOM!!
