Eggs are nature’s perfect food. Everyone loves eggs and you should too… they are so healing and versatile!
If you scroll through Instagram at all, you’ve seen the beauty of eggs from a photogenic perspective. Eggs really are nature’s perfect food in a perfect little package. But, other than their beautiful simplicity, there are deeper reasons why everyone loves eggs and you should too.
I mean, really… the simple egg beat out Kylie Jenner’s Instagram top pic…
I know some of you are of the mindset that if you order the whites only that you are saving calories. The nutrition in that yolk far outweighs the small amount of calories in it! Ugh. This frustrates me because the nutritional makeup of the yolk is so important!
I am a big proponent of eating the whole egg. So many of the nutrients are in the yolk.
And don’t even get me started on taste… so much of the taste is in the yolk…
I’ll never understand separating nature’s perfect food.
Whole eggs help with many types of dryness in the body. If you have a dry cough or a frog-in-your-throat, try eating some eggs. They have also been shown to help women with various conditions during and after pregnancy.

Some people consider eggs to be a superfood. They contain a large amount of vitamins A and B and are a great source of protein.
Eggs sometimes get a bad rap because of cholesterol, but it’s been shown that in 70% of people, eggs do not raise cholesterol, so don’t assume they are bad for you. Buy organic eggs and you are really doing the right thing.
This is my only caveat when it comes to eating eggs: Make sure your eggs are organic and pasture raised. When you eat eggs that are not organic and pasture raised, you run the risk that they contain various viruses, and those viruses then get transferred to your system. Some of these viruses and bacteria can induce or worsen some auto immune diseases.

This Is Why Everyone Loves Eggs And You Should Too
Eggs can be a healthy part of your life — and they should not be confined to your breakfast plate. While I do love these 10 Breakfasts To Boost Your Energy, I also love making pasta sauces, soups, and salads with eggs (see below for some awesome recipes).
1. Eggs lubricate the body.
This is so important. Think about it from a common sense, practical approach. When things dry up, they crack, crumble, and disintegrate. I don’t want that happening inside (or outside) my body! The principles of Chinese medicine teach that eating eggs can stave off dryness in the body. So, if you have a dry cough, dry skin, menopausal dryness, etc, then eggs can help you.
2. Eggs can boost your energy.
When we get older, we experience conditions known as Yin deficiency and blood deficiency. This causes not only dryness in the body, but also weakness. Eggs can help with these deficiencies.
3. Eggs are a good source of protein.
If you’re looking for a good, healthy source of protein, go for an egg. But, make sure it’s the whole egg. While it’s true that the whites do have protein, it’s not readily absorbed by the body without the addition of the egg yolk. Yes, the white actually needs the yolk in order to fully make it’s protein available to you.
If you eat just the white, you will be hungry much sooner than if you eat the whole egg… food for thought.
4. Eggs are actually good for your heart.
Contrary to past beliefs, eggs are actually good for your cardiovascular system. They contain a healthy amount of Omega 3s, which help lower cholesterol and triglycerides. But again, this is one more reason to eat organic, pasture raised eggs — this benefit has not been proven in traditional eggs.
5. Eggs are good for your brain.
Eggs contain choline, which we need for optimum brain health. Our bodies don’t produce enough choline, so we need to get this nutrient from foods; eggs are a great choice when looking for choline.
6. Eggs can help you look youthful
Eggs are good for your skin. They combat dryness and can slow down the aging process of your skin. Recently, there’s even been research suggesting that eggs can help stave off skin cancer.
