    Eating eggs reduces risk of type 2 diabetes,

    Post by Eddie on Thu Apr 02 2015, 16:27

    Egg consumption may reduce the risk of type 2 diabetes, according to new research. Type 2 diabetes is becoming increasingly widespread throughout the world. Research has shown that lifestyle habits, such as exercise and nutrition, play a crucial role in the development of the disease. A new study has found that egg consumption was associated with a lower risk of type 2 diabetes as well as with lower blood glucose levels. Men who ate approximately four eggs per week had a 37 per cent lower risk of type 2 diabetes than men who only ate approximately one egg per week. This association persisted even after possible confounding factors such as physical activity, body mass index, smoking and consumption of fruits and vegetables were taken into consideration.

    I wish I had a tenner for very article I have read vilifying the humble egg. I reckon they are the best value wonder food we can eat. As you can see below they are full of the essential nutrients we need to live. I eat between 7 and 10 a week. They have been eaten since the beginning of man I reckon, how they ever got a bad name is way beyond me.

    Chicken eggs are the most commonly eaten eggs. They supply all essential amino acids for humans (a source of 'complete protein'), and provide several vitamins and minerals, including retinol (vitamin A), riboflavin (vitamin B2), folic acid (vitamin B9), vitamin B6, vitamin B12, choline, iron, calcium, phosphorus and potassium.

    The humble egg is such a diverse, underestimated food ! People waste all sorts of money on protein shakes and energy bars when the egg, "a workout in a shell", would be a much better option.
    Some people still pour scorn on them but there will always be someone who will pour scorn on anything. I eat loads of eggs, my favourite is an omelette. Crackin' :-)

    I thought this egg nest recipe was on the Forum but couldn't find it ! So I've given a link to it  Smile

    As you can see it was Eddie loose cannon who originally put it on the low carb blog here:


    http://thelowcarbdiabetic.blogspot.co.uk/2014/07/egg-nests.html


    "It all started with a book. A whimsically illustrated French children’s book about cooking, called La cuisine est un jeu d’enfants, or “Cooking is Child’s Play”. First published in French in 1963, a version that included both the original French and the English translation was published by Random House in 1965. I first stumbled upon this book a few years ago and have been buying up used copies wherever I can find them, as gifts for my young friends who like to cook."

    I never get fed up looking at this fantastic site. So many fantastic recipes and food ideas. BTW, I never get fed up with a low carb lifestyle, how could I, it has put years of active life on me. Eddie"

    Check out this fantastic recipe by Elise and her site here: http://www.simplyrecipes.com/recipes/egg_nests/

    Breakfast today contained eggs, which I think are a great start to the day.  sunny

    So I thought why not show, and give a link, to this article featured on Authority Nutrition site by Kris Gunnars

    " 10 Proven Health Benefits of Eggs (No. 1 is My Favorite)

    Eggs are among the few foods that I would classify as “superfoods.”

    They are loaded with nutrients, some of which are rare in the modern diet.

    Here are 10 health benefits of eggs that have been confirmed in human studies.

    1. Eggs Are Incredibly Nutritious

    Eggs are among the most nutritious foods on the planet.

    A whole egg contains all the nutrients required to turn a single cell into a baby chicken.

    A single large boiled egg contains

    Vitamin A: 6% of the RDA.
    Folate: 5% of the RDA.
    Vitamin B5: 7% of the RDA.
    Vitamin B12: 9% of the RDA.
    Vitamin B2: 15% of the RDA.
    Phosphorus: 9% of the RDA.
    Selenium: 22% of the RDA.
    Eggs also contain decent amounts of Vitamin D, Vitamin E, Vitamin K, Vitamin B6, Calcium and Zinc.

    This is coming with 77 calories, 6 grams of protein and 5 grams of healthy fats.

    Eggs also contain various other trace nutrients that are important for health.

    Really… eggs are pretty much the perfect food, they contain a little bit of almost every nutrient we need.

    If you can get your hands on pastured or Omega-3 enriched eggs, then these are even better. They have more Omega-3s and are much higher in Vitamin A and E .

    Bottom Line: Whole eggs are among the most nutritious foods on the planet, containing a little bit of almost every nutrient we need. Omega-3 enriched and/or pastured eggs are even healthier."
