As for their moderate cholesterol content, the National Heart Foundation recommends that everyone, who follows a healthy balanced diet low in saturated fat (the nasty stuff that affects blood cholesterol levels), can eat up to six eggs per week without increasing their risk of heart disease. This includes people with diabetes or heart disease. That is reason enough to get egg-static. Nevertheless, if you’re still concerned about your cholesterol levels, just team up your next serve of eggs with some heart-healthy avocado and smoked salmon. Yum!
Lastly, when it comes to the age-old debate concerning where to store your eggs – pantry or fridge, either option is acceptable. It’s really a matter of personal choice. Debate settled. And, despite any recent controversy, please buy free-range eggs. The hens will thank you.
Eggs deserve their place in households across the country. They’re a rich source of nutrition, and they taste great too. However you like them, be sure to include them in your diet. They are pretty unbeatable.
