Eggs are a near perfect food. They are a complete nutritional powerhouse.
But without the yolk an egg is not half perfect, its almost useless.
Here’s why: The fats in the egg yolk aid in the digestion of the proteins in the whites as well as aiding in the metabolism of its cholesterol.
This makes egg white omelets a crummy food choice. Sorry Seth!
We really must stop worrying about fat and the cholesterol in real foods. Do you really think the ingredients in real foods could possibly be bad for us? Does it make any sense at all that natural food sources are the cause of our health problems hence our early demise?
"Don’t eat eggs – eat Egg Beaters! No cholesterol! No fat!"
Yeah. That sounds better. That sounds right.
How many of us have bought this concept hook, line and sinker?
There is also substantial evidence that too little fat especially saturated fat and cholesterol in the diet causes many deficiencies and can lead to anxiety, depression and a host of other symptoms – especially in children.
So put the yellow back in your whites and enjoy!
