I had a long trip down to NC yesterday for medical stuff, and overslept so there was no time to make a proper breakfast.
On the run, I broke one of my rules and went through McD's for an Egg McMuffin. The 'special' offer was an "egg white McMuffin" which I declined.
True, the egg whites are high in protein, but the real value in eggs is the yolk. More so if the eggs are from free-range hens. That means truly free range, like from a local farmer who has a dozen or so hens that are outside all day, not the factories that have a small dorr to allow hundreds of hens access to the cement outside. I never buy nutritionally deficient factory eggs anymore... I'd rather do without.
Almost all of the
ever-important nutrients like DHA, folate, choline and the essential vitamins
like A, D, E, K-2, B-6, & B-12 live in the yolk rather than the white.
Makes me wonder why the spiel, and what are they doing with all the yolks?
