You won’t like this article if you don’t eat eggs, but if you do, eggs are a great food to keep on hand. Especially during times, like now, when food is flying off the grocery shelves.
I am a lucky one to have free-range chickens, ducks, and a goose on my wildlife preserve. I collect at least 6 omega-3-enriched eggs every day from my little feathered friends.
Going to the grocery store is challenging these days as we do what we can to avoid viruses. So, having access to fresh eggs is a gift.
Keep plenty of eggs around, and enjoy a very good source of inexpensive, high-quality protein. Especially during food shortages.
Eggs are among the most nutritious foods on the planet. Think about this:
In the wild, a predator can survive foraging for eggs. A wild animal can live for a week eating merely one or two eggs.
An egg forms into a chicken – a living thing. One egg is packed with ALL of the nutrients needed to create life.
An egg is a power pack of life-sustaining nutrients.
You can boil em’, fry em’, scramble em’, and use them in soups and salads.
Eggs are rich in selenium, vitamin D, B6, B12, and in minerals like zinc, iron and copper.
More than half the protein of an egg is found in the egg white, which also has vitamin B2 and lower amounts of fat than the yolk.
Eggs are high in lutein and zeaxanthin, powerful antioxidants that protect your eyes. Eggs are also very high in protein and choline.
Eggs And Cholesterol
Eggs have gotten a bad rap because the yolk IS high in cholesterol. I’m not sure if we have really figured out the cholesterol-thing – cholesterol isn’t that simple, and it’s not a one-size fits all issue.
As with most everything, you are an individual, and your cholesterol levels might be different from your neighbor’s.
The more cholesterol that you eat, the less your body produces it. For this reason, eating a few eggs shouldn’t cause a high rise in your cholesterol levels – your liver simply won’t produce more. If you don’t consume enough cholesterol, your liver will produce it.
But remember that this is an individual thing.
How Many Are Too Many?
No studies have been done for people eating more than 3 eggs a day.
People in other countries eat up to a dozen eggs daily with no reports of heart disease or high cholesterol. So, no one can really say for sure.
Again, this is an individual thing, but at times like now when people are raiding the grocery shelves due to quarantines, panic and fear, having extra eggs around can secure that you and your loved ones have plenty of protein to last at least a week.
