Poor eggs, they get a pretty bad wrap in some circles. Barring food allergies or intolerance, organic, free-range eggs are actually an excellent source of nutrition.

Some highlights of the almighty egg:                   Egg_colours

  • Excellent source of protein, helping stabilize blood sugar and keep you feeling fuller, longer.
  • Great source of heart healthy omega 3 fatty acids, helping reduce your risk for heart disease.
  • Egg yolks are one of the richest dietary sources of the B-complex vitamin, which directly affects neurological (brain) function.
  • Eggs are high in sulfur, which is essential for collagen and keratin production, leading to strong nails and hair as well as youthful, glowing skin. Sulfur also supports vitamin B absorption and healthy liver function.

Here’s one of our favorite egg recipes over at Eat Clean Health:

Herb and Avocado Omelet

1 egg, 2 egg whites

½ tablespoon EVOO (extra virgin olive oil)

½ teaspoon fresh/dried thyme_MG_0044

½ tablespoon fresh/dried basil

½ tablespoon fresh/dried parsley

Dash of turmeric

½ ripe avocado

Black pepper (optional)

  1. Crack the eggs into a bowl, add herbs, and whisk together.
  2. Heat a small saute or omelet pan over medium heat, then add the oil to the pan. Once the oil is hot (be careful not to allow it to smoke), pour in the eggs.

When the eggs are firm, flip over. Add sliced avocado on one half of the omelet. Turn off heat and fold the egg over to serve. Top with black pepper to taste.

Eat Up and Enjoy!
