We all know that eggs are symbolic of new life, but beyond that they are very good for us.  I was appreciating their value as we had mega omelets last night made from our own chicken eggs.

 

In a “nutshell” eggs are high in nutrition, containing a wide variety of vitamins, nutrients, and amino acids.  They also contain one of the highest quality proteins, in levels that promote brain development in children, and multiple benefits in adults as well.  An egg is convenient to cook, and low in calories.  Debate over cholesterol levels basically has resolved that either the nutritional trade-off is worth it, or that the enzymes found naturally prevent the levels from building up in the body.  They are also said to be excellent for maintaining blood sugar.  Basically they are an inexpensive, and naturally an almost perfect start to a day.

 

For those who have a sweet tooth like my family, I was surprised to find that you have a 4 to 5 times higher chance of slipping, falling and ending up dead than of eating an egg with Salmonella.  Even then the odds of getting sick are slim, and the odds of dying from Salmonella are even slimmer.  Basically we’ve gone back to eating chocolate chip cookie dough raw!  So much fun.

 

A testament that the best things in life don’t usually include a lot of cash.
