That’s enough! Eggs healthy vs unhealthy?
Here’s my problem: One day I read an article that eggs are good. Another day I read an article that eggs are bad. All that mixed information confuses me — a LOT.
Bottom line? I don’t care. Above all I EAT eggs in moderation since I feel it works for my body. However, quality matters.
My food intolerance test showed that I shouldn’t eat too many eggs. Therefore, that explains quite a lot why I felt sick when one week I ate eggs each
Expensive eggs?! I’m fancy?
I don’t want to be fancy here and have that mentality that I only buy the most expensive eggs from the store. I don’t. Free-range eggs here are two to three times more expensive than usual eggs. I’m lucky that we have our chickens in the country house. Still, when I eat some usual eggs, then I might not feel good afterward. I’m quite sure it’s not a placebo effect.
Eggs vs flax eggs
Still, when I have to buy some eggs, then I go to the farmer’s market or I don’t eat any eggs. I can always replace the eggs with “flax egg” (flaxseed meal + water) or chia seeds. Therefore, these two ingredients are perfect replacements in most cases.
Huge difference! Color!
However, over the years I have noticed the difference between eggs. I can even see it by looking at the color of egg yolk. Above all free-range eggs or eggs straight from my country house are just YELLOW. Not to mention that all the baked goods come out better. Most noteworthy, that yellow color on the baked goods looks precisely the way I remember my grandmother used to bake. As a result, it makes me more than happy to see that.
Iron overload? Keto Avocado Egg Salad
Recently I got a blood test to check my vitamin levels. Everything was good. However, for my surprise, I had a little bit of iron overload. Therefore, I did some research and I found that eggs are good for iron overload. Looks like a reason to eat eggs with this keto avocado egg salad.
