Egg Yolk or No Yolk?

To Yolk or Not to Yolk?

healthy egg yolks for your body
Egg yolks are very healthy and good for you

There is a lot of confusion about whether it is healthy to eat whole eggs.  Eggs do contain cholesterol and saturated fat.   New research shows that saturated fat does not increase the risk of heart disease and stroke.  In fact,  if you are only eating the egg whites, you are not getting the full health benefits from the egg!  The yolk is the healthiest part of the egg which contains protein, Vitamins, and Antioxidants.  The yolk contains Vitamin A which is great to keep your skin young looking.  The yolk also contains B Vitamins which provide energy and choline which is great for your brain and muscles The saturated fat in the yolk is also important for hormone production and it helps the body absorb vitamins and minerals.  Another benefit of eating the yolk is that it contains the antioxidant selenium which protects against certain forms of cancer.  Yolks also are great for your eyesight as they have lutein and zeaxanthin.   These antioxidants reduce the risk of macular degeneration.

Whole eggs do contain about 70 calories each.  If you are trying to loose weight,  use one whole egg and 2 egg whites in your omelet to save some calories.  Remember…Don’t throw out the yolk!
