Eggs, How Do You Like Yours?
Eggs, How Do You Like Yours?
6th May, 2016

Eggs have been given a bit of a bad rap over the years, mainly because of their high cholesterol content and suspected links to heart disease. This is undeserved: it is now clear that the cholesterol found naturally in eggs makes very little impact on cholesterol levels in the blood and does not contribute to the risk of heart disease, so there is no limit to the number of eggs you can safely have each week.

This is good news for your health because eggs are one of the most nutritious foods you can eat. A great source of protein, they are also rich in vitamins B2 and B12, selenium and iodine, and are one of the few food sources of vitamin D. In addition, eggs are a rich source of the antioxidants lutein and zeaxanthin, which have been linked to a reduced risk of eye diseases.

Wonderfully versatile, eggs are perfect for making quick, satisfying meals, and dishes such as omelettes and frittatas are ideal vehicles for an array of tasty vegetables. Here are a few of our favourites:

Sweetcorn Fritters with Chopped Spinach and Sunflower Seed Salad

Frittata with Mixed Salad

Buckwheat Blueberry Pancakes
