Eggs have received some bad press over the years, for no good reason at all. Many people tout the fat content. Others are horrified by the cholesterol contained in the yolk. Then there are the hormones contained in eggs simply because they come from the unfertilised cycle of the hen.
The truth of the matter is that eggs are incredible and have earned that title simply by being themselves. What’s better? You can eat a few eggs a day and get the benefits of a whole carton – it’s not egg aging.
