Eat Yolks to get Yoked

NUTRITION TIP TUESDAY:

EAT THE YOLKS.

The yolk is the part of the egg with all of the nutrition. Please stop following outdated nutrition guidelines that say eating egg yolks will raise your cholesterol and make you die. That just isn't true.

According to Lily Nichols, RD, eggs with the yolks are one of the most important foods for a pregnant woman to consume in order to grow and develop a super healthy baby! Check out her research article here.

Eggs are packed with choline, DHA, B-vitamins, Vitamins A, D, E, & K, protein & healthy fat. "Plus, eggs are a complete protein, providing all essential amino acids in a highly bioavailable form. One way to measure protein quality is by a ranking system called biological value and eggs top the list with a perfect score."

So, if you are looking to be an overall healthier person, buy some eggs - LOOK FOR "PASTURE RAISED" ON THE LABEL!
