Free Range Eggs - A Top 10 Superfood

Picture
Fresh Brown Eggs
I have long been a proponent of eggs from pastured hens.

Eggs get a bad rap many times but the truth is they are a great source of:

  • Nine essential amino acids
One of the highest quality proteins you can find. Proteins are nutrients that are essential to the building, maintenance and repair of your body tissues such as your skin, internal organs and muscles. They are also the major components of your immune system and hormones
  • Lutein and zeaxanthin (for your eyes)
  • Choline for your brain, nervous- and cardiovascular systems
  • Naturally occurring B12

I routinely eat my eggs raw but for many that is not something they are ready to do unless they are really a committed health fanatic!

It's very handy though, I can have two or three raw eggs and some fresh vegetable juice for lunch and be back to work in ten minutes.

If I'm in a hurry in the morning I can crack a couple of eggs into a mug and two swallows later my breakfast is over and I'm out the door!

I would not recommend doing this with store bought eggs regardless of pastured, free range or otherwise. The risk of salmonella is very real.

Here's a list of the top 10 super foods for your health. How many are you consuming?
