I run weight control programs in a hospital, clinics and a school and never had a problem recommending high quality eggs as nutritional food. Today, it seems that the egg had become a controversial issue, as every thing else that used to be clear. Well, when you have 9 billion people on earth, you’d find at least 1000 nutritionists against the egg! Even air has become controversial. I am here today to straighten out the egg!

The nutritional value and taste of an egg is sensitive to what the chicken eats and how it lives. Saving a dollar on cheap commercially raised eggs may be costly in health later. Your chicken should eat leftover food and yard growing greens and roam around looking for insects and worms. Its cancer fighting Omega 3 will rise, its cancer promoting Omega 6 will fall and its cholesterol will have less LDL  and more HDL. The egg will supply more variety of vitamins than any other single food, and will even lower hunger. Having said all that, knowing the poor nature of humans following instructions, let me suggest that you choose an egg with a high level of Omega 3, well cooked and no more than one a day. I scramble my egg, add 2 table spoons of water, a little salt, and fried in olive oil for 10-15 minutes on very low fire. Delicious.
