Did you know that Eggs provide high quality protein, unsaturated fatty acids, and health-promoting bioactive compounds, and eating up to one egg a day has been deemed to have little effect on cardiovascular health for most individuals. Choose eggs in place of refined carbohydrates like bagels and pancakes, hold the sides of greasy white potatoes and processed meats, and follow these tips for making the best choices for you:
- Go large. Choose eggs marked “Large” if you plan to cook with them because it’s the standard called for in recipes.
- Look at labels. Label language provides information about how the hens live, what they’re fed, and how they’re treated to help you choose what matter most to you.
- Keep eggs refrigerated. This prevents the growth of bacteria.
- Don’t go by shell color. It has no bearing on nutrition.
