🍳Pasture raised eggs from @coachkbmoves' 🐔🐔🐔 for sale at POINT... and only $5!🍳
We've been accused of posting too many pics of our egg breakfast salads but we can't help ourselves... Eggs are SO. FREAKING. GOOD! And good for you, too! Let's break it down:
We're sure you know that pasture-raised eggs provide a high quality protein, but it doesn't stop there! And srsly ppl, don't skip the yolks. The yolk supplies the egg's fat soluble vitamins A, D, E, and K, lecithin, and the carotenoids lutein and zeaxanthin. They also contain iron, calcium, zinc, vitamin B6, folate, and B12.
You lose a lot of the health benefits here with cooking so we like to leave the yolk as runny as possible* (plus it then serves as salad dressing on the greens). We could go on and on... so we will! Eggs also provide vitamin B2, selenium, copper, betaine, choline, and good fats and cholesterol.
Eggs are awesome because they promote heart health, are used to strengthen the blood and increase energy by enhancing digestive and kidney function, help protect your bones, and they are a great food to have as a filling breakfast, although we think you can eat them at any time of day. 😉
*Thoroughly cooking the yolk kills any bacteria, including salmonella, but it also destroys many of the nutrients. It is estimated that 1 in 20,000 eggs may contain salmonella so read reports from the CDC to inform your decision about how to prepare your eggs. We like them #overeasy, #poached #basted, #sunnysideup, or as a #softboiledegg. I think we can all agree, if you get your #eggs from a #local, #organic, #pastureraised source, there is no wrong way to eat an #egg!
