Study: The Healthiest Way To Eat Eggs

For those who eat eggs…

While the egg yolk debate (to eat or not to eat) may continue among doctors, nutritionists and others in the health industry, researchers from Purdue University are giving the whole egg the thumbs up.

In fact, they’ve discovered that eggs consumed with raw vegetables can actually increase the nutritional value of the veggies.

This study, which was presented earlier this month at the American Society for Nutrition’s Annual Meeting, consisted of 16 healthy young men who were instructed to eat three different salads — one with no egg, one with one-and-a-half scrambled whole eggs and another with three scrambled whole eggs. “And what we observed was that there was a progressive increase in the absorption of the carotenoids from the vegetables as you had more eggs, which we attribute to the fat component of the yolk,” lead study author Wayne Campbell, Ph.D., a professor of nutrition science at Purdue University, tells Yahoo Health.

They don’t quite know how, just that for a small sample it did.  I have a recipe for scrambled eggs, which reminds me that I haven’t made scrambled egg pita pockets in a while…

Separate Eggs with a Plastic Bottle

I separate an egg by shifting the yolk from one half of the broken shell to the other.  Once in a while, the yolk will break.  And it can take a little bit of time & effort, but can mean one less thing to clean.
