Recently we have been hearing how bad eggs are for us. We have heard it time and time again. These little devils are the worst thing that we can put in your body. I have heard eggs being compared to cigarettes. I laugh at all of this. I really do. I don’t know what to make out of all of it. Since when did eggs start being bad for us? When was the magical day that the human body all of a sudden started to reject these as being bad? Sometimes in life people say and do the craziest things. What is the motive behind people saying eggs were bad in the first place? I don’t know, but I wouldn’t doubt that it had something to do with money.
I don’t know if money was behind all of this. All I can do is speculate. What I do find odd is, how once people started saying this, everyone said this. It was some snowball effect or something. I don’t think that the world has anything against eggs. It is a popularity thing. I mean, when we were in school we did everything that the popular kids did. If the popular people on television say eggs are bad, all the rest have to follow too.
So, what were said about eggs? There were a lot of things that were said. It was said that they are high in fat and cholesterol. Both is not true. They said that we should only eat two to three eggs in a week. I don’t think that is true either. I have to say that this is just my opinion here. Don’t go holding me to the fire thinking that everything that is about to be said is fact. All I am doing is stating my beliefs and experiences.
I have known several people who lived to be in their 80’s and 90’s who ate eggs every day of their lives. I mean they didn’t miss a days worth of eggs. Why didn’t they die the fast death that people claim egg eaters do? Because it is nothing more than a cheap lie.
What do eggs do for us? Well, they do a lot of things. They offer a good source of protein. If you are a body builder, you know how important that is. They give our hair a good shine and it makes our hair easier to manage. They are a good source of vitamins. There is no doubt that eggs in this respect are good for you. Did you know that egg shells also have calcium? Yes, that is what differs them from other eggs, such as turtle eggs. If you have ever touched a turtle egg you know that they are rubbery, like a rubber ball.
Here are some ways that I love to eat eggs. Hard boiled.
I love to hard boil my eggs for breakfast some time. Sprinkle a little salt on them and they are the best damn breakfast food out there.
I love them prepared this way. Throw in some cheese and some veggies. If you want to go the extra mile, throw in some ham too. It is a meal in itself.
How can you go wrong with scrambled eggs?
Sunny side up.
I love them like this too. I love dipping biscuits in the egg yolk. Nothing says breakfast like this.
You should always make sure that your eggs are fully cooked. 1 in 10,000 eggs are infected with a virus. If you cook them all the way done, you will almost eliminate the risk of getting sick. I wouldn’t eat more than two eggs per day if you are on a low fat diet. That sure sounds a lot different than the two eggs per week. You can eat more if you don’t feel that it will bother your diet. Just don’t eat a whole dozen of eggs uncooked. But, I don’t think you are that stupid. You should also never eat raw eggs. Don’t gulp an egg down and think that you are being manly because of it. You are doing nothing more than acting stupid. You really could get sick.
You should also be careful with egg nog. That is uncooked eggs. You should buy the kind in the store that is pasteurized. Also, if you are eating something like mayo or a salad that has mayo in it, always make sure that you keep it cold. If you allow it to get warm, you are risking getting sick. If you have a picnic, make sure that you eat the mayo containing food right away. Also, keep it out of the sun.
