02 Oct A bit more on the Egg Story…..
The American Heart Association revised their dietary guidelines in 2000 to emphasize an overall dietary pattern for good health. There is no longer a specific recommendation on the number of egg yolks a person may consume per week. However, the recommendation for healthy American adults does limit cholesterol intake to less than 300 mg per day. One large egg=220 mg cholesterol per day. You do the math.
Remember that eggs are one of the most perfect foods found in nature. Not only are their rich in protein, B vitamins, iron and other minerals, they have no carbohydrates, and no trans fats. And, they are inexpensive and are widely available to boot.
The take home message here? It’s not your eggs that are causing your increased cholesterol levels. Take a look at the rest of your diet before you say no to the egg!
Eat Your Eggs!
