Food: The Heart of the Egg

I thought that everyone might want to read this. Being a Wiccan, our saying is that as long as we harm no one we can do whatever we want. Eating healthy is a part of that because eating damaging foods or not eating healthy ones is harming us, thus harming someone. So, here’s something to remember about egg yolks.

As a fitblr I often see people talking about egg whites and how great they are and how bad egg yolks are. NO. It breaks my heart to think of all the nutrients of the egg yolk being discarded into eggy heaven. 

Egg yolks are good! 

Nutrients in a yolk: Egg yolks are jam packed with fat soluble nutrients these include: Vitamins A, D, E, K and carotenoids. These help you boost your immune system, keep your bones, teeth, and skin healthy, reduce the effects of diabetes, and help you reduce the risk of cancer. 

Also: Yolks have loads of Zinc, Calcium, Folate and vitamin B12. All of which are super important for you. 

But, but, but eggs are full of cholesterol! Yes, but you need this cholesterol! Cholesterol is needed in the body as it is the building block of hormones, also cholesterol helps repair damaged cells in the body. Cholesterol that comes from processed, super fatty food is bad for you, so don’t go out and eat tons of fried food. When it comes from this incredible egg it is not! 

Additionally: Eating only egg whites can cause a biotin deficiency, biotin is the vitamin that gives us strong nails and beautiful hair! 

In conclusion: EAT THE WHOLE EGG. It is only 70 calories for one XL egg. It is amazing for you. Tastes great. Now I am not saying go make yourself 20 eggs to make up for your lack of yolky days, but do not be afraid to incorporate into your diet.

    The first and perhaps most obvious cause of this is the nail bed has been damaged from constant use of artificial or acrylic nails. Acrylic nail extensions usually require the nail bed to be buffed and filed down so the nail extension appears as natural as possible. While the resulting extension may be nice to look at, your natural nails are left thin and weak underneath…
