    Default Yolk and You

    s the yolk really bad for you tho?! 🥚 🍳 👇
    Old science feared that the cholesterol in eggs would mess up blood fats and thus increase risk of heart disease, which is why many fitness freaks throw out egg yolks. Science is, however, always being updated and cholesterol is not as dangerous as once feared.

    The body produces 80% of it itself in the liver. Dietary cholesterol is really only a problem if you have familial hypercholesterolemia or if your diet is high in saturated fats from animal sources, in which case your risk of heart disease is increased even more. (4)
    But for most people, after adjusting for dietary factors, a higher consumption of eggs (up to one egg per day) is not associated with increased risk of coronary heart disease or stroke in healthy men and women.

    Whole eggs are full of beneficial vitamins and minerals, and contain almost every essential vitamin and mineral our bodies need to function. It is one of the few natural food sources of vitamin D and contains 7 grams of high-quality protein. Whole eggs are also full of omega-3 fatty acids and deliver many of the B vitamins B6, B12, riboflavin, folate, and choline.
    Focus on replacing saturated fat from animal sources with polyunsaturated fat from plant and marine sources and you can enjoy your eggs!
