I am a big proponent of eating real eggs. They are basically natures perfect food, I mean think about… they are life waiting to happen. Most people think that eggs are awful for your cholesterol and you should only eat the whites. This is a fair assumption, but there has been a lot of research disproving this myth. Check out this article from Men’s Health:
However, you’ve probably been told at one time or another to avoid eggs because they’re high in cholesterol and fat. This is the same thinking that led to low-fat diets—and a mindset that has probably made us a lot fatter over the past decade. It’s simply a leftover recommendation from the low-fat legacy that was never forgotten.
In a recent review of dozens of scientific studies, Wake Forest University researchers found no connection between egg consumption and heart disease
As noted in the caption, I baked mine just a little bit too long. I love my yolks runny, and that way I could have mixed it up with the potato which I wasn’t able to do as well. Oh well, next time. Also, don’t forget to season! Same as you would an omelete or a baked potato– I used garlic, onion, chili powder, and ranch seasoning.
I also took another go with the slow cooker, making some South Western chicken concoction. Here’s what I used:
- Like 3(?) chicken breasts
- 2 Spicy low-fat andouille chicken sausages
- Good amount of black bean salsa
- 1 can of a corn, okra, and onion soup
- 1 can green chiles
- Garlic, onions, and chili powder
It came out well! Could have used a little more spice though. What would give it that, does anyone have any ideas?
Cooked it on high for about 4 hours:
So again, let me know if you have any fitness or nutrition questions you would like me to discuss, or dishes you want to see me cook!
