You know the saying, "the incredible, edible egg".

I'm not a big fan of the flavor of egg yolks, so I usually make mine scrambled.

Great post!

I love fried eggs with the yoke runny so I can use my toast to soak it up! Yummy! I also like to mix my fried eggs, sunny side up-in my grits. I know it sound gross but it is soooo good.

We buy our farm fresh eggs from this all natural bakery just around the corner from where we live. It's a little embarrassing because we buy 2 dozen a week and it's just my husband and I. Great post Ruth. I love the part about what we find in egg substitute. Why do we have to add all that crap in when the egg was created perfect to start with!!!

My husband did a quick video about additives in food on our site if you feel like checking it out.

We eat a lot of eggs at our house too and we don't shy away from the yolk.

I love eggs. I don't pay much attention to research about them (except when it relates to food safety) because my grandparents ate eggs for breakfast every single morning from the time they could afford to until they died (about 40 years) yet never had any heart trouble and both lived to be nearly 80; whatever the health effects of eggs on people in general, they clearly aren't a problem in my family.

What bugs me most, though, about the idea of eating only egg whites is, do people just throw away the yolks??? I hate throwing away food, and it seems like a sin especially with egg yolks, which are so nutritious!

Hi! Newly following from "What's Cooking Wednesday".

We've never jumped on those "fiendish food" bandwagons and have never altered our use of whole eggs. Or butter. Or coffee, etc., etc. What nature creates has always proven to be more nutritous and usually more delicious than anything that man can conjur up in a lab.

Medical professionals just a few decades ago advised that almost all foods are just fine, "in moderation." I can't imagine they'd say the same about all of the chemicals used in today's so-called "healthy" foods.

Great post!

Cranberry Morning said...

Good post! For lunch, I had two eggs, scrambled with a bit of turkey, onion, and basmati rice, then a sprinkling of cayenne. So good, and I need those omega 3s!!

I've read that eggs are one of the most nutritious sources of protein, and it's such a shame that they've been tampered with - like so many other whole foods. During the summer I buy free-range eggs at the farmers' market and try to buy something similar at the grocery store.

In the past I've tried Eggbeaters 'n' such - I thought they were so easy and nutritious! Won't be doing that again. We have pancakes most mornings with the kiddos - eggs, whole wheat flour, buttermilk - but sometimes we have scrambled eggs (with chopped spinach and cheese).

I love my farm fresh eggs & eat 2 at a time. 2 pancakes or 1 waffle & 2 fried eggs with syrup... yum yum. My last Dr. visit they told me I was in perfect health & to keep doin whatever I was doin, lol. Barnyard chores & eatin alot of food from my own yard.

We love eggs!! As we are a grain-free family, we eat them every single day! My favorite is scrambled eggs in coconut oil topped with avocado and lacto-fermented salsa.

Mmmm. Eggs. I love 'em! I'll never eat an egg white omelet again because they are disgusting. Really. The best foods taste GOOD!

I love eggs; the yolks are the yummiest part! Thanks for sharing with the Hearth and Soul blog hop!

Ingrid@morestylethancash said...

I love eggs so much that my husband is convinced that in my last life I must have either been an egg farmer or a fox!

I never did understand why eggs started getting such bad press, mostly based on bad research and sloppy news reporting.

I've never had cholesterol problems and I eat a minimum of 2 eggs every day.

I love eggs. I'm getting an egg tattoo on my left arm. check out name tattoo ideas I will have a pic posted there with my new egg tattoo.

I'm sooooooo glad I found this blog!! I eat at least 3 hard boiled eggs a day. I've made MANY dietary changes, especially in the last 4 months, and I'm having trouble figuring out what to eat. Common "grab and go" lunch: 3 HB eggs, 1 (brown) rice cake, raw green beans, snow peas, or snap peas.

SO need to be part of a community that eats healthier - need the support to ease the frustration of doing so much cooking (which I really hate.... I always LOVED to bake. I was able to transition to gluten-free baking, but gluten AND sugar free baking is just too hard....)

Sue,

Have you checked to see if there is a local chapter of Weston Price Association in your area? They aren't gluten free, but they may be a great source of support.

There are other options then the whole egg or just egg whites...2-3 egg whites and 1 whole egg gives an omelet a nice balance if you eat eggs a lot. No shame in that.

But why would you want to throw out two perfectly good egg yolks?

Britany Holmes said...

I’ve recently read some articles about eggs. After reading those articles about the benefit’s of egg in our body. I realized the importance of eggs that it contains a lot of vitamins as what have we read in this article eggs are very nutritious and good for our health. Fresh eggs are sensitive you need to know how to pack it carefully.
