Live Love Glow has been a little neglected of late, I blame the move!
I thought it would be good to start this week with a question that I asked Heidi a long time ago on twitter. When I put it forward to her again for the blog she was able to give me a response that didn't just comprise of 142 characters:
Clear up a question that's been bugging me, how many serves of eggs are recommended weekly for an adult female?
Dietitians tend to recommend 5-6 eggs per week and I really like to encourage egg consumption in my practice. They’re full of good nutrients – B Vitamins, healthy fats and protein.
While I don’t always eat 5-6 eggs every week, I do think this recommendation is valuable, as it encourages egg consumption. For some time people have been afraid of eggs, fearing them too high in cholesterol. Yes, the yolk is a dietary source of cholesterol but the real contributor to high cholesterol in our diets is all the greasy, fried, fatty and pre-packaged processed foods out there.
Plus, eggs are incredibly satisfying – nothing fills me up quite like two poached eggs on a slice of wholegrain toast. Maybe with a side of spinach and avocado too. Ok, when’s breakfast?
How do you like your eggs?
Do you eat more or less of the weekly recommendation?
