Go ahead and eat your omelet.
Healthy adults can enjoy an egg a day without significantly impacting their risk of heart disease. According to the Harvard Medical School, research has shown that most of the cholesterol in our body is made by our liver and doesn’t come from cholesterol we eat. You should still be careful of stuffing your cheeks with eggs if you have a pre-existing medical condition, but otherwise feel free to add that boiled egg right on top of your salad.
Eggs have a heart of gold and do a lot to help your body.
Honestly, we should be ashamed about how we have maligned the egg. Not only do these little powerhouses keep you fuller longer with complete protein (all the amino acids needed to build muscle) they also are packed with vitamins A, D, E, K, and B2. That means they go hard in the paint when it comes time to help out your eyes, nerves, brain, and other body parts. Feel free to get started on your Facebook open apology letter to the egg now. We’ll wait… #eggsareexcellent #nomoreeggshaming
