The egg is a food that in my opinion is the king of meals, because it is very practical to prepare, cheap, and highly nutritious that should be part of our regular diet.
Composition: the shell, depending on the species, will be of different colors, which has nothing to do with its quality.
The yolk is the yellow portion. It consists mainly of Omega 3 mono and polyunsaturated fats that are very healthy for the body.
protein (contains essential amino acids for the body, which is why eggs are considered a protein of high biological value) in 100gr the protein intake is 12 to 14 grams.
And finally the white, which is made up of 90% water, the rest is made up of proteins (ovalbumin) minerals such as iron, phosphorus, potassium and magnesium.
And vitamins like niacin, cobalamin, riboflavin, vitamin A, D and E.
The egg also contains convenient choline in the diet.
of pregnant women as it facilitates the proper development of the nervous system.
And finally carotenoids such as lutein that helps prevent eye disorders.
The eggs should preferably be from grazing hens that are free and that their diet is corn.
In the yolk, all the substances that are added to the concentrates, including growth hormone or antibiotics, accumulate. For this reason, when we consume these eggs, they generate inflammation in the cells produced by these accumulated substances in our body, in addition to generating allergies.
Therefore, I recommend that if you buy poultry eggs, you only consume the white.
If they are field chicken eggs or happy chickens you can consume it completely.
It has always been said that the egg is bad because it produces cholesterol.
This is a mistake. Our body needs healthy fats because it is part of the cell membranes, especially our brain.
The brain contains 2% of our body mass, but has up to 25% of total cholesterol, which supports brain function and development, as well as helping neurons connect.
It depends on how it is prepared because it creates problems for our health.
Let’s remember that Trans fats when heated generate substances that damage our cells and lead to metabolic problems, obesity, dyslipidemia and cardiovascular diseases.
If, on the other hand, you use cold-pressed oils rich in monosaturated fats, high in Omega 3, our eggs will be better nutritionally.
You can also cook it in water, consume it with onion, tomato, mushrooms, spinach and an endless number of other recipes.
In children I recommend starting it after one year and preferably starting with the white and that they are free-range chickens.
In adults, consuming 1 or 2 eggs daily would be fine.
A healthy breakfast should always include eggs because of their high protein intake to start our day.
Remember the egg is not bad, it is the way you prepare it and the additions you make to them (sausages, processed sauces with additives or trans fats).
