Deviled Eggs with smoked paprika

This wonderful food is guaranteed to get your flock flying sunny side up! Free Range eggs are something to crow about. Hens that spend time on the pasture, get exercise, and fresh air produce healthier eggs. This wonderful food is inexpensive and probably nature’s most perfect nourishment. Free range eggs are best. Why? There is more than great flavor in free range eggs.  You will find more vitamins, less cholesterol  and saturated fat. According to Mother Earth News’ research, free range eggs contain less fat and more  nutrients than conventional eggs:

  • 1/3 less cholesterol
  • 1/4 less saturated fat
  • 2/3 more vitamin A
  • Two times more omega-3 fatty acids
  • Three times more vitamin E
  • Seven times more beta carotene

Eggs  are loaded with vitamins and nutrients that help your eyes, brain, and heart because they contain choline, an organic compound that promotes cardiovascular health and brain development.

In addition, eggs provide Vitamin D, an important nutrient that many people, especially those living in the Northeast, do not seem to get enough of  during the winter months. According to Mother Earth News,”The USDA says supermarket eggs contain an average of 34 International Units per 100 grams. Our tests of eggs from four pastured farms in Texas, Kansas, Kentucky and Pennsylvania found that their eggs contained three to six times as much vitamin D as typical supermarket eggs. This means two scrambled eggs from pastured hens may give you 63 to 126 percent of the recommended daily intake of 200 IU of vitamin D.” What excellent news!

If you would like to get the most health benefits from this practically perfect food, please eat the entire egg(excluding the shell of course) as both the egg white and the egg yolk are good for you. And that’s no yolk.

(As an aside, eggshells can be placed in the soil of your garden to grown flowers and vegetable. They enrich the soil with calcium to create beautiful blossoms.)

    I still do not understand why there is still such a backlash against the egg industry. One bad study and noone went back to eating eggs yet everyone goes back to drinking coffee, alcohol and eating sugar no matter how many studies that say they are bad for you. Those three probably contribute more to heart disease more than a poor egg ever thought of doing!

    Peace.it does not mean to be in a place where there is no noise, trouble or hard work. it means to be in the midst of those things and still be calm in your heart.

    What an interesting article. I don’t understand why people don’t eat more eggs – they are not only delicious but also VERY simple to prepare!

    Love the egg article. I insist that my boys have eggs most days for breakfast. It gives them the best protein and energy to get the day started right.
